Clear Channel Give Bush 24X More $$$ Than Kerry

HeadlineMar 25, 2004

Campaign records show that executives at media giant Clear Channel have given 24 times more money to President Bush’s campaign than to Senator John Kerry’s. To date Clear Channel executives have given Bush about $42,000 in personal contributions and just under $1,800 to Kerry. In addition Clear Channel’s political action committee has given more than three-quarters of its federal contributions to Republicans. Clear Channel’s political leanings re-entered the headlines after it pulled Howard Stern’s show from its network. Publicly Clear Channel said the show was pulled because it was indecent but Stern charged the real reason was that he had started criticizing President Bush on the air.
