Which Media Types Gave To Which Campaign?


Following up on a previous inquiry into who is donating what where, FishbowlNY earnestly asks the skeptical question: Which Media Types Gave To Which Campaign? From The Huffington Post’s Fundrace we learn that media types are mercurial and often — especially if they are CEO’s — spread their campaign donations around. Maintaining all angles. Still, these are some of the more interesting things we found:

Jann Wenner donated $2,000 to Al Sharpton’s quixotix 2004 Presidential run.

–Millionaire yachtsman and National Review founder William F. Buckley, Jr. gave a measley $500 to the Republican National Committee in 2004.

Beloved, recently deceased Conde Nast exec Steve Florio gave Rudy Giuliani $2,300.

Frosty Vogue editrix Anna Wintour gave John Kerry $2,000.

Oxygen CEO Gerry Laybourne has given a massive $6,900 to the Hillary Clinton campaign thus far.

Glamour editor Cindy Lieve has donated $500 to the Obama campaign.

Oprah Winfrey donated $2,300 to Obama.

Digital Age host James Goodale, flush with Debevoise & Plimpton — his side gig — monies, spread the wealth around in a $1,000 donation to Obama, $1,000 to Biden, $2,000 to the 2004 Kerry campaign and $25,000 to the DNC in 2004.

Harvey Weinstein gave $4,600 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Billionaire Ron Perelman donated $2,300 to Hillary Clinton.

In 2004 Jerry Seinfeld donated $2,000 each to Wesley Clark and John Kerry. Jinx.

Howard Stern Show sidekick Robin Quivers gave $2,500 to the DNC in 2004, at the height of the FCC debate.
