Koch News Is Bad News for Hartford
The Koch brothers may be on the verge of destroying the Hartford Courant.
The billionaire brothers reportedly want to buy the eight Tribune Company newspapers and use these outlets to promote their extreme political agenda. This means turning the Courant into a platform for Koch Industries at the expense of everyday citizens.
The Koch brothers have repeatedly misled the public on a range of social, economic and political issues. They don't care one bit about journalism or the Hartford community.
Still, the Tribune Company is reportedly taking the Koch bid for its newspapers very seriously.
We can't let the Kochs win this one. The Tribune Company needs to hear from the people of Hartford and beyond.
Take action. Tell the Tribune Company: Don't sell the Hartford Courant to the Koch brothers — or anyone who would put ideology before fair, objective and hard-hitting journalism. We'll deliver your message to Tribune Company executives before it's too late.
