David Koch dies and the media whitewashing has begun

From the article:

One can expect a lot of this sort of coverage of David Koch over the weekend. The Koch brothers spread their policy agenda often with loads of cash spread out to state and local parties and candidates behind closed doors to carry out policies behind the backs of entire communities. The Kochs were funders and organizers of the bogus Astroturf Tea Party movement that moved the Republican Party closer to its current right-wing extremism and paved the way for the rise of Trump.

There is nothing overly complicated about the legacy of David Koch. He was a billionaire who worked to undermine democracy while giving huge sums of money to charity.

The US conservative, corporate media will transform the history and actions of David Koch like they transformed Reagan.

Bill Maher: I'm 'Glad' David Koch Is Dead, 'And I Hope the End Was Painful'
Ditto, Bill!

5. I've heard nothing but bad things from what I'm seeing. Bernie was the nicest saying I don't

applaud when someone dies and that's about it.

6. Koch, like his family, was so very toxic.

Similar to the Trump family.
