    John Dunbar,Center for Public Integrity的研究計畫主持人,出了一本名為〈Networks of Influence: The Political Power of the Communications Industry〉在討論這問題。

    • Total lobbying expenditures from 1998 through mid-2004 by the industry were more than $764 million. In comparison, the oil and gas industry less than $400 million over the same period, the Center has found.

    • Campaign contributions from 1998 through September 2004 were $145.6 million. The total includes both hard and soft money donations from industry employees, labor unions representing employees in the communications industry and political action committees.

    • The Center identified 450 industry-funded trips valued at $704,229 from 2000 through March of 2004.
