Employees of the three major American broadcast networks overwhelmingly gave more contributions to Democrats during the 2008 election year.

Eighty-eight percent of the contributions went to Democratic candidates and campaign committees. The employees gave over $1 million to Democrats and just $143,000 to Republicans.

President Barack Obama received $462,000 in campaign contributions, while Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., received $27,000.
