As an outsider, an international, I have no idea about the mysterious Koch brothers. From what I have gleaned they are millionaires (billionaires) who have conservative values. Obviously in the land of nod, to be a billionaire with conservative is bad, but a billionaire who breaks the Bank of England (George Soros) is good.
I have seen several articles that have misrepresented the Koch brothers, including their donations to various causes. There was one last year that caught my attention, because the Dem operatives were out there claiming that the Koch brothers were funding Freedom Works and the TEA movement. I am sure that there are many people who are part of the TEA movement who probably wish that it was the truth.
An article in Powerline has more about this misrepresentation of the Koch brothers. The New York Slimes has just posted correction no 2 relating to the smears about the Kock brothers.
In response to the attempt to make a correction by the New York Slimes for their misrepresentation John Hindraker writes:
As we pointed out, the Callahan column contained at least two more factual misrepresentations that the Times has yet to correct. But note the grudging nature of the one correction the paper did issue today. The Times says that the op-ed “imprecisely described” the Koch brothers’ contributions to certain nonprofit groups. Actually, this is what Callahan wrote:
One such group is FreedomWorks, which has received significant amounts of money from the Koch brothers and is a force behind both the Tea Party political movement and the conservative libertarian policy agenda it espouses.
Given that the Koch brothers have in fact contributed nothing to FreedomWorks, the claim that that organization has “received significant amounts of money” from them is not an imprecise description, it is a flat misrepresentation.
