“Earlier this month, billionaire siblings Charles and David Koch made it publicly clear that they hate subsidies of all kinds — even the ones they benefit from as oil producers. Although it is refreshing to hear that even oilmen are now against oil subsidies, it would be even more refreshing if the Kochs were willing to lead by example — that is, if the Kochs were willing to return their share of the billions that fossil fuel companies receive every year in government largesse”.
Did you hear the one about the Koch Brothers putting on the pressure for public TV to not air ‘Citizen Koch’, a less than flattering documentary about them? Since they are large contributors to public TV, there was no choice but to give in to their demand. So much for ‘freedom of the press’.
