Tell the Hartford Courant: Don't sell to the Koch brothers!

To be delivered to Peter Liguori, CEO, Tribune Company

Petition Statement

Don't sell the Hartford Courant to the union-busting, election-buying Koch brothers.
There are currently 4,306 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Koch brothers are the right-wing duo infamous for funding the Tea Party. Now they want to buy their own media empire to spread their extreme views -- including the Hartford Courant, and its parent, the Tribune Company.

The Kochs have spent their fortune funding anti-worker candidates like Scott Walker and right-wing lobbying groups like ALEC. They even warned tens of thousands of their employees that there would be "consequences" if they didn't vote for Republicans. Not exactly the kind of guys I want running the most respected newspaper in Connecticut. Isn't one Rupert Murdoch enough?

The Hartford Courant is a valuable source of honest journalism. We can't let it turn into a right-wing mouthpiece.

Please sign our petition against a Koch brothers buyout of the Courant.
