I got this email from Moveon.org.
Dear MoveOn member,
If you’re concerned about the power of the Koch brothers, you’ve got to hear this new podcast.
It’s the inside story of the documentary Citizen Koch, which was supposed to air on PBS—before executives yanked the film out of fear of upsetting the billionaire Koch brothers. (By the way: It turned out David Koch had donated $23 million to PBS.1)
As you might expect from a couple of documentary producers who helped Michael Moore make Fahrenheit 9/11, the directors ofCitizen Koch didn’t take this lying down. The story of how it all happened, and what happened next, will inspire you.
Thanks for all you do.
Actually, I am more concerned about the targeting of private citizens as public enemies by an entire political party and by senior officials on government. I am not such that the presence of a couple of the producers who helped make Fahrenheit 9/11 is much of a recommendation considering the number of inaccuracies and outright lies found in that “documentary”. If Citizen Koch is similarly mendacious and libelous, then there is no great mystery why PBS would not care to broadcast it.
