Bad News: Stop the Koch Brothers
The bankrupt Tribune Company is selling its daily newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times. Charles and David Koch — billionaire brothers notorious for their extreme politics — may be the buyers.
According to the New York Times, the Koch brothers want to buy these media properties to push their anti-environment, anti-labor and anti-democracy agenda.
We don't need more corporate control of our media and our politics. We need journalism that fights corruption — not hack writing that covers it up.
Stopping the Koch brothers’ bid for the Tribune Company is about supporting the kind of journalism that serves communities and acts as a watchdog against the wealthy and powerful.
Tell the Tribune Co.: Don't sell your papers to the Koch brothers.
