The scholars behind the now-suspended Federal Communications Commission (FCC) plan that would have allowed government contractors to question journalists about editorial decisions was crafted almost entirely by donors to President Barack Obama.

Four of the five scholars enlisted by the FCC to author the study that led to the plan are donors to the president, according to the Washington Examiner’s Byron York.

    There was also a one-sidedness in the research behind the project.

    According to Federal Election Commission records, Wilson gave $3,300 to the Obama presidential
