Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Sleep sheep.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irghDJNZ0ss Published on Jun 3, 2013 Citizen Koch was pulled from the PBS playlist because the Koch Brothers contributed over 20 million dollars to the network. There was also an Alex Gibney doc on Park Avenue that was axed by the network that looked criticially at the top 1% of NYC. Has the push to cut government funding of PBS made them dependent on wealthy donors that can influence their programming? Tabetha Wallace and Tyrel Ventura look at the story on this Buzzsaw clip.

"The Bridge Project recently released a 16 page report [pdf] detailing the some of the most egregious of the Koch brothers' political efforts to make life as miserable as possible for minorities, the elderly, and pretty much everyone who isn't rich. Alternet distills it down to the seven worst among their "efforts to dismantle years of civil rights progress."
