  1. Dear Friend,

    Documents and interviews illustrate a vast cottage industry, comprised of Koch brothers’ spokespeople, front groups, think tanks and elected officials, which have built a self-sustaining echo chamber to transform fringe ideas into popular mainstream public policy arguments.

    We’re out with a new video today with Senator Bernie Sanders and the Strengthen Social Security Campaign that connects the dots and illustrates how the Koch brothers have moved their self-serving ideas into the mainstream.

    The Koch echo chamber works in a myriad of ways, and Social Security is one example of its effects. Watch the video and see how the Koch brothers achieve their policy goals. Then counter the Koch billions by sharing this video and creating an echo chamber of truth.

    Together we can build an echo chamber of our own, one that favors truth, integrity and equal protection for everyone, not just the Koch brothers.

  2. Dear Friend,

    Our latest video connects the dots and reveals how the Koch brothers fight against public education in every possible way.

    Their efforts began in North Carolina where they funded an effort to resegregate schools in an award winning school district. Using the same language as Gov. George Wallace in the 60s, Koch-supported school board members attempted to make “segregation always” a policy for tens of thousands of families.

    While David and Charles Koch drink down the high life, they are causing tens of thousands of families in North Carolina to lose their opportunity at enjoying educational equality and a free and fair shot at success. It’s part and parcel of the Kochs’ ideology to dismantle public service generally.

    Watch the video, then take action.

    Call David Koch at his Manhattan office at 212-319-1100 and tell him to “stop funding school resegregation now.”

    We can’t let the Koch brothers ruin an equal opportunity for all. We’ve partnered with the Advancement Project, People for the American Way, Center for Social Inclusion and African American Ministers in Action to take action and spread this important investigation around.

  4. Dear Friend,

    Our latest video exposes billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch for their distorted philanthropy at cash-strapped American colleges and universities. Through their family foundations and nonprofits, the Koch brothers are requiring Koch-friendly professors drill Ayn Rand’s ideology into students in exchange for the Kochs’ ideological “strings attached” donations.

    Watch our latest video, then ask our friend Ed Schultz to expose the Koch brothers’ psycho talk.

    We’re responding by partnering with local Florida groups to organize the campus against the Koch brothers’ infringement on independent academic integrity. Organizing in defense of academia and against the Koch brothers, who seek to ideologically influence college students and have entrenched allied groups on campus, isn’t going to be easy. Help us give these young activists the nation-wide support they deserve.

    Student leaders at Florida State University are working to organize students in opposition to the Koch brothers’ influence. Some more details are at the bottom of this note, but we need your help to make the Koch brothers’ influence on academia into a national issue.

    Will you tweet @Ed Schultz and help us expose the Koch brothers’ psycho talk?

    Yours,
    Robert Greenwald

    P.S. Here’s the plan to expose the Kochs at Florida State University:

    Tonight in the heart of the FSU campus, students from the Florida State Progress Coalition are kicking off a campaign against the Kochs. These students are premiering our Koch Brothers Exposed video and leading a Q&A panel featuring students, faculty members, Florida legislative leaders, and progressive activists and bloggers to raise awareness and inspire action.
    Students will staff tonight’s event and manage the campaign to organize students against the Koch brothers’ influence at FSU.
    You can stay up to date with the Florida State campaign by clicking the Like button at our Koch Brothers Exposed page on Facebook where we’re posting updates and opportunities to take action.
