Members of the media have donated to Democrat Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign to the tune of $382,000, which blows the amount given to Republican Donald Trump out of the water.

According to The Center for Public Integrity, people working in the media — which includes journalists, reporters, news editors, and TV news anchors — are opening their wallets for the former first lady.

The website cites data that shows just $14,000 has been given to Trump's campaign, meaning Clinton has taken in 96 percent of all the cash donated to each candidate by the media.

Examples of those in the media donating to Clinton include former ABC "World News Tonight" anchor Carole Simpson ($2,800), Talk Media News service reporter Ellen Ratner (almost $2,800), television host Larry King ($2,700), Liberty Tribune reporter Ryne Dittmer ($625), and hundreds of others from a variety of news organizations.

Executives at Vogue, Vanity Fair, the Hollywood Reporter, and Elle have each given Clinton at least $2,700, reports The Center for Public Integrity.

And, despite the fact that many media companies prohibit their employees from donating to political campaigns, the practice still occurs.

Trump's relationship with the media has been rocky. He banned multiple news organizations from covering his campaign events because he felt their reporting was unfair and biased, although he has since lifted the ban

Trump has continually called the media "dishonest," although he vowed not to have a media blacklist if he becomes president.
