Exposť - 80 Years of Planning: The Kochs + The Family + Birchers = TEA PARTY Disinformation Machine

"War on Error" writes:

I originally posted the following exposť in February, 2011 a few months before Occupy Wall Street was officially launched. Since then, Robert Greenwald has released "Koch Brothers Exposed"

Here is the entire film:



Here is a trailer for Citizen Koch, the film recently rejected by PBS



Below is the original 2011 exposť that includes links to some obsure documents that back up Greenwald's assertions.

Do share this with others as the truth about the bought and paid for Echo Chamber of disinformation funded by the Koch Brothers.

And, yes, this information can be disconcerting, but let's not run away from the truth.

I hope you will help spread this information far and wide via Facebook and Twitter (drop my avi name if you do Retweet: My avi name (OccupyGreed) is censored from all twitter hashtag and search streams, so very few get to see my tweets that are looking for information. You have my consent and permission to copy/drop my twitter avi/paste and publish. It would be good to NOT loose this information.

You may also copy and publish this information without citing me. I'm just trying to help people understand our dire circumstances and how we got to this place. And it is dire. I know this is long, but please read it and share with others.

Keep Standing UP! I am proud of all who bravely do.

UPDATE: This article was written in February, 2011 before OWS emerged. I have edited and updated, providing some additional information.

2. I will be buying it if/when it does! The article in the OP is real journalism, IMO...

..a lot of thorough research had to have been done and not surprisingly, our corprat-controlled media won't touch any of this - they're too much part of it. If they were doing their jobs, this would be a huge story, not bogus Benghazi, IRS, and AP scandals.

3. I watch PBS mostly and am sickened every time I see 'sponsored by Koch' on a show.

Sickening also, that PBS is kissing their asses.

Excellent journalism indeed! We sadly have no major media left to drown out the propaganda.

5. Triana, thanks, have just shared on two websites. This is as good as the Thom Hartmann piece here.

I'm going to add this to every post where I mentioned that. The word must get out!

9. A very toxic combination of some extremely evil people.

Add the Fox Opinion Channel stirring up an extremely crazy viewer base and you've got a perfect storm.

10. Media is absolutely complicit. Why are they not reporting on this?

It's a HUGE scandal - much more so than that fake shit the GOP is flinging re: AP, IRS, Benghazi. Those things are just distractions from stuff like what the Kochs/Tea Party/Family are doing.

11. The Koch's want to buy Tribune Corp.

If that happens the media as we know it will be completely destroyed. That's like 1/2 the major newspapers in this country. Freedom of the press would be dead.

I see this bumper sticker regularly that says "I don't believe the liberal media. I'm thinking "hey I don't either." All we really have is Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert.

12. Yes, what bit of integrity is left in the corprat-owned media would be one.

And there is so very little left. It wouldn't take much - the Kochs buying Tribune would complete the murder of media integrity in the US.
