CNN’s Bennett Gave to McCain, Romney

The Huffington Post reports CNN analyst and conservative author Bill Bennett “gave several thousand dollars to Sen. John McCain‘s presidential campaign, a fact that,” according to a review of transcripts, “Bennett has not mentioned during any of his appearances on the network.”

Informed of the donations, a CNN official said that Bennett also gave an unspecified amount to Mitt Romney‘s campaign in January 2008, which would not show up on the latest campaign filings.

Last month, Talking Points Memo reported that James Carville and Paul Begala had been suspended from CNN until after the Democratic primary because of their support for Sen. Hillary Clinton. The CNN official said Bennett’s situation was different since he had given to more than one candidate.
