• David Koch

Last week, Michael Miner wrote about the possible sale of the Chicago Tribune to brothers David and Charles Koch, multibillionaires who are particularly well known for their controversial libertarian politics and flagrantly anti-Obama stance. As Miner wrote, many people fear that a Koch takeover would radically change the Tribune for the worse; tomorrow, some of those people will make their voices heard. According to a press release, the protest is scheduled for 11:45 tomorrow morning outside of Tribune Tower. The full release is below.
