Who Buys The Horses?

By Neil the Ethical Werewolf

If only the media covered primary fundraising the way David Sirota wants them to:

there's something, well, surreal about watching Adam Nagourney and Charlie Rose sit there chin-scratching like Serious Thinkers while spending a full 15-20 minutes of airtime trying to bend FEC numbers into a Vegas-style handicapping system, without so much as a word about what industries are buying what from whom with those contributions.

The horse-race coverage of primary fundraising only serves to amplify the power of big money in politics.  Big donors aren't powerful merely because they can give campaigns the resources to run ads and hire staff -- they can make a campaign legitimate in the eyes of the media just by driving up its quarterly numbers.  It'd be pretty nice if we could actually get some issue-oriented reporting out of it, with speculation on what policies the various donors are expecting candidates to enact for that money, but our pundits happily allow them to shape our government from the shadows.

Sirota, like some of the other bloggers, are pouting because Edwards did not raise as much as the other two. please. How would this be seen if Edwards raised 25 million?
But, because it was obama, who Sirota has this irrational hardon about, he just cannot stand it.

That's not right, vwcat. Sirota posted this Tuesday morning (April 3) before anybody knew how much Obama had raised.

I don't think the particulars of who donated what have been released yet.

Plus, if I'm not mistaken Edwards did quite well in the fundraising dept. Maybe I'm remembering this wrong, but I thought the numbers were something like: 26M for Obama, 25 for HRC, 21 for Edwards.

$14 million for Edwards is what I heard.

Yeah, you're right, my bad. I just checked the campaign email that I got and it is indeed 14M.

Don't know where I pulled that 21 figure from.
