No, You Probably Won't Be Surprised . . .
But you should be very, very concerned:
The Center for Public Integrity found that the vast majority of politically active journalists have donated money to the Clinton campaign.
Indeed, the watchdog group reports that "people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism" — have given over $396,000 to the 2016 presidential campaigns. Of that amount, more than 96 percent (that's $380,000+) has gone to Clinton.
