SJ -

Your posting has several errors in it. It wasn't a report by the Center for Responsive Politics; it was an article by a blogger for the Huffington Post who was using data from the Center's database.

That article also noted that the CEO for News Corp. (parent company of Faux News), Rupert Murdoch donated heavily to Republicans, and the CEOs for Time Warner and CBS gave only to the companies' PACs.

Also, the posting doesn't mention what money media conglomerates and their executives may have given SuperPACs, which don't have to disclose their donors, but whose expenditures on the presidential campaign may outweigh those of the candidates and their parties (particularly on behalf of Gov. Romney.

Finally, anyone who watched the RNC's convention didn't need the media to interpret that debacle for them.
