On Friday night, Rachel Maddow delivered a blistering reply to a letter from attorneys representing billionaire conservatives Charles and David Koch. While she has always been willing to make corrections on the show, she said, the Kochs' current...

AAWW did the poor little rich boys get burned. Once more are shown promoting the most reactionary stupidity. What a shame. NOT!

We know who the enemy is.

You rock, Rachel!

Thanks Carrie, I hadn't heard of this and the bad signal prevented me from seeing the video, but the text told me enough. How stupid can these Kochs be, sending Rachel Maddow a script to read to recant her errors and actually think she's going to do that. Have they even seen one of her shows? Of course Rachels immediately uses this 'request' to show what kind of people they are, knowing she's in the right.
We can only hope the Kochs make many more of these blunders so Rachel can take them down a notch. You go, girl!

If the Kochs' attorneys are genuinely concerned with inaccurate and false information . . .they would do better to get busy post haste on the vast reservoir that belongs to their own clients -- the Koch Brothers (et al) -- who have **coined & minted** misinformation into a personal art form and have put forth body of illusional and erroneous work to date so vast...it will require lifetimes to correct . . .

PS. Perhaps to do the extent of their own involvement. . .they could do it Pro Bono . . .

Love Rachel Maddow. I saw this on her program, watched the video again, with a wide grin. I don't believe in cloning humans or animals. But, with Rachel, I might relent because she is a gem. We do need more of her or people like her. Give them hell Rachel!.

Now if only our political leaders and pundits had half the brains; the cojones and the moral and ethical rectitude and courage this lady has; we might have a government that actually works for the interest of the nation.

Way to go, Rachel. The Koch's are arrogant jerks.

I saw this show the other night. Rachel is just brilliant and I watch her every night. The Kochs are masters of deceit and greed. Their father worked for Stalin and these kids were brought up as Nazis like their father. When the government wouldn't go along with what one of them wanted decades ago, they set out to destroy the country, buying it up, rounding up the less informed to do their bidding and set out to destroy us along with it. The less informed haven't caught on yet, that they will also be destroyed along with the rest of us. Rachel - YOU Rock!

Thanks Carrie. Maddow is brilliant and the Bros Koch are arrogant idiots, proven by her piece the other night. We do need more like her and also Chris Hayes.

Saw Rachel's segment on the Koch brothers, and lets just say, her hair was on FIRE!! I love the woman, and I pity those who think they can take on a woman of her caliber! Rachel, you are my heroine!

I love Rachel-she is fantastic!!

The Koch brothers are pure EVIL and most of us here on Care2 know that...the ones who defend them do not realize they are being used and played by the Big Polluters.

Thanks Carrie!
