With your help, we got the Kochs and we got them good.

We got them! With your help, we got the Kochs and we got them good. Our latest video about the Koch brothers’ fight against public education earned 60,000 views so far. It was played on MSNBC and was written about everywhere from Mother Jones to the Raleigh News & Observer. These and other press clip links are below.

Now the Koch-supported Tea Party group, Americans for Prosperity, is telling reporters that it has pending legal action against us. Will you counter the Kochs’ billions and donate $20 to help our efforts?

We drew the Kochs’ ire as soon as our video went live and these reporters started making calls. Americans for Prosperity quickly flooded reporters’ inboxes with litigation threats and retraction demands. When asked for their side of the story by news organizations, Americans for Prosperity’s Dallas Woodhouse told journalists there is pending legal action against us.

Will you help us keep our work alive and set the record straight?

We can’t withstand the Kochs without you.

Thanks for everything you do to protect democracy,
Robert Greenwald
and the Brave New Foundation team
