Fwd: The movie the Koch brothers couldn't kill



Dear MoveOn member,

If you're concerned about the power of the Koch brothers, you've got to hear this new podcast.

 


It's the inside story of the documentary Citizen Koch, which was supposed to air on PBS—before executives yanked the film out of fear of upsetting the billionaire Koch brothers. (By the way: It turned out David Koch had donated $23 million to PBS.1)

As you might expect from a couple of documentary producers who helped Michael Moore make Fahrenheit 9/11, the directors of Citizen Koch didn't take this lying down. The story of how it all happened, and what happened next, will inspire you.

Thanks for all you do.

–Ben Wikler
