Keep Koch Brothers Out of the Newspaper Business

The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor rallied yesterday against the sale of the L.A. Times to Charles and David Koch, billionaire brothers who fund conservative causes such as denial of climate change and fighting health care reform.

Among many other groups the Kochs have founded, the inheritors of oil and gas wealth fund Americans for Prosperity, which helped bankroll Wisconsin’s 2011 drive to bust public employee unions and Michigan’s 2012 right-to-work law.
