Stop the Koch brothers from purchasing the Los Angeles Times and other media outlets

Right-wing super villains Charles and David Koch have reportedly expressed interest in purchasing some or all of the holdings of the Tribune Company, which owns newspaper and television stations across the country, including the Los Angeles Times.

Millions of people count on the Los Angeles Times for strong and unbiased reporting, including their endorsements for political candidates and ballot initiatives. It would be a travesty to the fourth estate if the Koch brothers purchase one of the most respected newspapers in the country in order to peddle their discredited ideas and right-wing propaganda.

Please join with Daily Kos and the Courage Campaign in signing our petition to Peter Liguori, President of The Tribune Company, urging him not to sell the Los Angeles Times and other Tribune media properties to Charles and David Koch.
To Peter Liguori, President of The Tribune Company:

We urge you not to sell the Los Angeles Times or other Tribune Company holdings to David and Charles Koch because of their extreme, propagandist interests which have no place in journalistic endeavors.

Ah! The Koch Brothers.
Please remember, any paper product from Georgia-Pacific is part of the Koch Brothers empire.
Purchase at your own risk.

I would like to recommend a new name for the Republican Party~~~~~~~The S.T.E.P.F.O.R.D. Republican Party.
The Stepford Republicans - A group of robots/mannequins, engineered by the Koch Brothers.
Now, if we could only get it to stick.

If the LA Times sells their paper to this duo, this is comparable to selling your soul to the devil, so to speak. What baffles me most, is the people who don't see them for what they are. They are ANTI, everything that isn't under their control.

If you let the Koch brothers get hold of your LA Times or your other Tribunal holdings there will be no more truth in journalism. It will be tailored to fit their bill and no one else's.

It is bad enough that Rupert Murdoch has media holdings like Fox News etc and manages to pervert journalistic integrity. Fox News has become the propaganda wing of the Republican party, promoting biased reporting, and outright lying which has been fact checked. The Kochs will do the same. They have said that if you want to control people, you need to control the media. Please don't sell to the Kochs.

Signed
