|THE KOCH WHORES DON'T LIKE THE TRUTH TOLD|
“We will not stop reporting on the political actions and the consequences of the political actions of rich and powerful men, even if they send angry letters every time we do it. I will not read scripts provided to me by anyone else. I do not play requests.”
Rachel Maddow has spoken of her tussles with the Koch brothers on-air before, and last night she did it again with a blistering indictment of the legal letter sent to her on the Kochs’ behalf to publicly correct a report she did on them. Maddow did a report this week on Florida’s “drug test the poor” law (now on its way out) being tried in other states, partly at the urging of a conservative group that’s part of a network that receives funding from the Koch brothers.

Maddow showed the letter that the lawyer sent, including a script for her to read clarifying that they are “not involved in promoting any such issue.” Maddow said quite sternly, “I’m not going to read their script. I’m not going to renounce my own reporting on this story, because the reporting on this story stands. It is true.”
She found it amusing that the key objection is they don’t want people to know about their political activities, and said that’s not good enough to stop people from reporting negative things about them.
Maybe the Koch whores are so accustomed to writing scripts for Fox & Friends and congressional GOPers, that they assumed Maddow or MSNBC would cave - guess again asshats.
