Gonwk, please join Daily Kos and the Courage Campaign in opposing the sale of the

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
newspapers and television stations across the country, including the Los Angeles
The Koch brothers are well-known for buying elections, funding anti-science
research, bankrolling ultra-conservative organizations, union-busting, and even for
organizing the tea party. Now they want to buy the Los Angeles Times to add another
mouthpiece for their corrupt agenda.
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 are allowed to
purchase one of the most respected newspapers in the country in order to peddle
their discredited ideas and right-wing propaganda.
Please sign 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.
