Seattle Weekly writers bash George W. Bush, but the president might take some consolation in the generous contributions he gets by way of the paper's co-owner, Goldman Sachs. The financial investment company's employees "have donated $436,199 to Bush over the course of the president's political career -- and a startling $301,225 in this year's election cycle alone," Josh Feit reports in The Stranger. Goldman Sachs is one of three investors in the Weekly's parent company, Village Voice Media.
