    The Koch Bros Are Elitist Billionaire Misanthropes

     

    They give money only to those charities that serve their political propaganda. Examples are the
    heritage foundation
    Fred C. and Mary R. Koch Foundation (1953[4])
    Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation (1980[5])
    David H. Koch Foundation[6]
    Koch Cultural Trust (founded 1986 as Kansas Cultural Trust, renamed in 2008[7])
    Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation[2]
    Charles Koch Institute (2011)[8]

    Their contributions to Public TV is a cover for their anti-global warming misinformation campaign. They give NOTHING to help the poor because their libitarian beleifs forbiid it.

    • I used to think it odd that there is so much left-leaning spam on this board. Now it's clear that Microsoft Corporation bears a grudge against Koch Industries for some reason. We may never find out just why, but this is how Microsoft deals with all its business enemies.

      As coverage of last week’s flare-up between Bob Woodward and the White House devolved into the granular parsing of words and implications and extrapolations and possible intent, the larger point was roundly missed: the increasing pressure that White House correspondents feel when dealing with the Obama administration — to follow their narrative, to be properly deferential (!), to react to push-back by politely sitting down and shutting up.

      “The whole Woodward thing doesn’t surprise me at all,” says David Brody, chief political correspondent for CBN News. “I can tell you categorically that there’s always been, right from the get-go of this administration, an overzealous sensitivity to any push-back from any media outlet.”

      A brief recap: After the Washington Post ran a Woodward op-ed in which he claimed that the administration was “moving the goalposts” on the eve of the potential sequester, the veteran journalist went on to assert that economic adviser Gene Sperling said, in an e-mail, “I think you will regret staking out this claim.”

      While Woodward spent a lot of the week on cable news going back and forth on whether that was a threat, few reporters, if any, asked why a high-level administration official spent so much time — Sperling admittedly shouted at Woodward during a 30-minute phone call, followed by that e-mail — attempting to control an opinion expressed in a newspaper.

      The answer, say former and current White House correspondents, is simple: This administration is more skilled and disciplined than any other in controlling the narrative, using social media to circumnavigate the press. On the flip side, our YouTube culture means even the slightest gaffe can be devastating, and so you have an army of aides and staffers helicoptering ove
