Right-wing brothers Charles and David Koch, each worth over
$21 billion, don't just underwrite a huge conservative infrastructure of

like-minded corporate "investors" who oppose health, energy, financial and other
reforms. Details on their symbiotic relationship with big moneyed interests from
Glenn Beck and the Chamber of Commerce to oil, health insurance, Wall

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
