Rachel Maddow has been documenting the Koch Brother's funding for like... six months now. I always wondered why mainstream organizations didn't pick up the story.
Because Koch Industries subsidiaries (which includes products like Brawny) would withhold advertising. You ever wonder why say, Northrup Grumman and Boeing make ads? It's not to sell -you- anything.
It's not always bad (it's slowly managed to put idiocy like nuclear power hysteria in its place, for example). But it's one of the more subtle reasons why we have so much celebrity gossip in this country.
