David "The Mouse King" Koch Booed Despite His $2.5 Million Donation

Abby Zimet

David Koch, who gives almost as much money to artsy groups as to Tea
Partiers, serial polluters, right-wing front groups and other nasty
causes, got booed when he appeared at an opening of the American
Ballet Theatre's Nutcracker at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, even though he paid for it. Can't buy me love, it seems.


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
