The Conservative Opinion is a blog founded and owned by editor in chief Kambree Nelson.
Our writers write blog posts that contain opinion-based commentary covering politics and world events.
As the name of our site indicates, we specialize in conservative opinions that we believe are grossly under-represented by establishment media.
For those who don’t believe that Republicans are under-represented in the establishment media, here is some data to consider.
From CJR “Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cash”
October 17, 2016 By Dave Levinthal and Michael Beckel
People identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television anchors–as well as other donors known to be working in journalism–have combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis.
More than 96 percent of that cash has benefited Clinton: About 430 people who work in journalism have, through August, combined to give about $382,000 to the Democratic nominee, the Center for Public Integrity’s analysis indicates.
The phenomena of Republicans being under-represented in establishment journalism pre-dates the Trump presidency. A 2014 study found roughly four times as many journalists identifying as Democrat vs. identifying as Republican.
From Politico “Survey: 7 percent of reporters identify as Republican”
May 6, 2014 by Hadas Gold.
The percentage of full-time U.S. journalists who claim to be Republican dropped from 18 percent in 2002 to 7.1 percent in 2013, according to a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver. In 1971, the first time the survey was conducted (this is its fifth incarnation), some 25.7 percent of journalists polled said the identified as Republican.
The number of journalists identifying as independent is at 50.2 percent, the highest percentage since the survey began, and the number identifying as Democrat dropped to 28.1 percent. Of those polled, 14.6 percent identified as “other.” That means nearly 65 percent of journalists polled don’t identify with either of the major parties.
What do we hope for? Simply, a more even playing field.
