NORTON META TAG

23 May 2013

This could sink a deal the Koch brothers desperately want, Stop the Koch brothers from buying the news 23MAI13

THE state of a democracy is greatly influenced by the state of it's mass media. A strong, healthy democracy has a strong and vibrant, independent media that is not afraid to challenge the powers that be. If the koch brothers are able to buy the mass media the Tribune Company is selling the state of our democracy will be at risk to greater manipulation by and control of the koch brothers, and they are no friends of democracy. Please sign the petition from Daily KOS and Credo Action asking the board of directors of the Tribune Company to refuse any and all offers from the koch brothers to buy the mass media organizations that are for for sale. There is much at risk for our nation.....
30 MAY 13 is date of the next meeting of the board of directors of The Tribune Company, the corporation from which the Koch brothers are looking to purchase newspapers.

Please join with Daily Kos and CREDO in petitioning the board of directors of the Tribune Company not to sell any Tribune media properties to Charles and David Koch.

As the board meets, they need to hear our message loud and clear: the Koch brothers have an agenda to create misinformation that has no place in the news business.

The board needs to know that any media outlet will lose a huge portion of its audience if it is sold to the Koch brothers, and that we’ve got hundreds of thousands of petitioners to prove it.

We will deliver the signatures to the board of directors before they meet on 30 MAY. We just need you to add your name:

Please join Daily Kos and CREDO in petitioning the board of directors of the Tribune Company not to sell any Tribune media properties to Charles and David Koch.

Keep fighting,
Rachel Colyer, Daily Kos
