Follow the Media-to-Congress Money Trail

January 5, 2007

Want to know if your Congressional representatives filled their campaign coffers with the entertainment industry's cash? Look no further than the Center for Public Integrity's awesome Media Tracker. The new version helps you learn more about major media companies, including a detailed history of all campaign contributions to all candidates for Congress and the Presidency, dating back to 1998. The neat "Power Trips" tracks legislators' travel that was paid for by a company.

To get you started, check out the new House Internet and Intellectual Property Subcommittee Chairman Howard "Hollywood" Berman. Telling, no?
