CBS Touts Dem Effort to Make Koch Brothers 'Public Enemy Number One'
Newsbusters.org ^ | 4/1/2014 | Kyle Drennen

Posted on 04/02/2014 7:41:05 AM PDT by rktman

Teasing an upcoming story Tuesday on a left-wing smear campaign against conservative donors Charles and David Koch, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O'Donnell proclaimed: "Battling the Koch brothers, Democrats are fighting back against the family that spent more than $150 million trying to shake up Congress." Introducing the segment, fellow co-host Charlie Rose announced that "one of the best-known families in big-money politics is once again in the spotlight."

LOL! Best known families? Hmmm. Seems to me when there was a survey done, most people were clueless as to who the Koch brothers are. Spent $150 million! That amount is laughable compared to what soros funded groups spend. But then again the spooky dude is only trying to save the world from evil capitalism. Which is of course how he became so uber wealthy. Back stabbing SOB!

How can they blast Koch without going after Soros?

It’s called Selective Reporting.

Using total wealth as a baseline, if I donate $937 to the RNC I am just as evil as Charles and David Koch.

The people in the media are just such absolute idiots it's disgusting.

Naturally, the next story will focus on Hollywood and Entertainment stars, George Soros, and Labor Unions’ forced dues billions which support the so-called “progressive” regressives who are taking away our freedoms and dismantling our Constitution’s protections!

Kochs were 77th in political giving during the last election cycle.

NOT FIRST.
NOT SECOND.
NOT EVEN THIRD.
BUT...

77TH

The Koch brothers aren’t even in the top 20 list of political donors.
And, of the top 20, 18 of them donate to democrats.
Not sure where in the list the 2 conservative donors rank.

Because CBS is just another wing of the democrat/communist controlled media/entertainment/academia propaganda complex. They get their talking points and the robots just spit them out.

I love it when Rush plays the different communist talking heads repeating the same officially approved phrase over and over again. Nothing is better to prove how these communists march in lockstep to the tune of the Party Line.

The Koch brothers are living ‘rent free’ in Harry Reid’s head ..... obviously, there’s plenty of room for both of them.

I wonder if these people have thought this demonizing all the way through. Do they really want to piss off billionaires?

As I recall from an earlier post from someone, they are either 49th or 59th. Can’t remember for sure but they are WAY down the list.

Kinda like he has some weird obsession or something. Maybe he got popped in the head too many times as a boxer. As an aside, I read somewhere this morning that he’s “repaying” the campaign for his misappropriation of money he paid his granddaughter. How nice of him. Thus, no harm, no foul and he’ll not even be admonished for his misdeeds. That’s how it works for dimokkkrats. Conservatives, not so much.

I’d be interested in where the 2 conservatives out of the top 20 donors fall in that 20.


Found the list - they are at 17 and 19.

Yeah. . . . Sometimes we just forget to label our posts as “sarcasm.”
