Signed with a smile. The Koch's do not want a news outlet, they want another propaganda machine.

Like Kit says, the Koch brothers only want a tool to fool the public into taking whatever action will turn THEM a profit. Signed & noted.... thanks, Nancy.

S+N - We should learn from Murdoch that the extreme right wing only want to dole out propaganda at the expense of accuracy in journalism!

The Koch Brothers don't need media outlets to achieve their greedy, underhanded, self-serving ambitions. They already have the Citizens United ruling. Isn't it far easier to write anonymous checks to finance political campaigns than it is to brainwash American citizens with misinformation that can be challenged? Besides, they already have Fox News to do their dirty work.

Gladly signed and noted!

The Newspapers are largely Owned by 3 companies and you want to have a fit over the adding a 4th? If they print crap people will not buy and it will close. Simply enough

Michael L 'If they print crap people will not buy it and it will close. Simply enough' - sadly that isn't how life works - if they print lies in a clever enough way then people will buy it - that is how the Third Reich came to power and others!
BTW there is a Daily Kos petition to support the journalists who have said they will quit if the Kochs take over.
I did try and copy the link for you but it incessantly came back filling in my own details - even if I looked it up on my search engine so I can't.
