Journalists and Money

Howard Kurtz is either stupid or deliberately deceptive, or both. Kurtz does an article about media people giving to campaigns. The subtext of the article is, of course, that it undercuts their objectivity or at least the perception of objectivity. He then goes on to list a bunch of people and who they gave to. It isn't an exhaustive or complete list, and there's no sense of whether or not it's representative in terms of who the recipients are.
