Petrochemical billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch are vying to purchase the Tribune Company’s media assets, including the critically important Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Spanish-language Hoy papers.

The communities served by Tribune’s properties are key stakeholders in the decision. That's why Forecast the Facts is joining the Courage Campaign to object to the Koch Industries bid.

Sign the petition demanding Tribune Company CEO Peter Liguori reject offers from anti-science propagandists like the Koch brothers.

A bigger platform with which to spread their free-market ideas seems to be what the Kochs want. The Times quotes one attendee of the Kochs' exclusive donor seminars as saying of the brothers, "They see the conservative voice as not being well represented."

Thank you, Beverly, for helping to "get the word out" about this possible take over of the LA Times.

Although I have already signed and submitted a previous petition about this matter, I have done it now again.

Gladly signed, Beverly. If the Kochs buy newspapers, they can just spread their propaganda into another market. Even though newspapers are struggling, the Kochs can easily take losses and continue to reach people who may not use the other media so much. Thanks for posting this, Beverly.

That's my opinion too Judy ~ they'll do anything to spread their manure as far as they can.

Honestly Stuart, I will sign every anti-Koch petition I see. I hate them and everything they stand for.

We boycott everything we can that has anything to do with the Bros Koch. As money is the issue here I have my doubts that Ligouri will listen but we can hope and keep the pressure up too.
