    http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2013/08/22/koch-industries-drop-interest-in-tribune-papers/2689171/

    …If you don’t like the numbers, you lose all right to bitch about “The Liberal Media” reporting on your “Secret Bank Accounts”

    …and all those proud conservatives who refuse to attach their name to political donations to the Koch brothers. Time to stand up like the Tea party loud mouths you finance. If you can’t stand up for you donations? how can you stand up for America?

    So private donors, are you sure it’s American you’re interested in?

    P.S. This is who YOU listen to GOP voter.
