Secret Sins No More

Abby Zimet

A blockbuster investigative piece on the Koch Bros. - in the uber-conservative  Bloomberg Markets magazine, yet - uncovers global crimes beyond what any of us knew. Among the revelations: They sold secret millions in oil equipment to Iran; gave bribes to get business in six countries, thus violating federal corruption laws; stole oil from federal lands; ignored pipeline safety rules, resulting in the deaths of at least two people. Alternet has more on their sins closer to home. This is why people are in the streets.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
