Writer/director Aaron Sorkin told the New York Times that his new HBO series “The Newsroom” has a bias toward either party because he doesn’t have one.

Said Sorkin: “I have no political background, and I have no political agenda. I do think that there are going to be people who say that I’m just putting my own politics on display. Which again I’m not. I don’t really have my own politics. I’m very easily convinced of other people’s position.”

But it didn’t take long for Jeff Bercovici to find that Sorkin gave 19 separate campaign contributions totaling $144,500 since 2007. Every one of those contributions went to a Democratic candidate or group.
