Seems as if >500,000 people are not happy that the Koch brothers might be buying some newspapers.

And what is this large mass of unhappy people doing about it?

If you guessed preemptively buying those newspapers, you’d be wrong.

No, rather than doing the reasonable thing – buy the papers so that the protestors would be able to do with their property whatever they wanted – the protestors are trying to somehow block the sale.

Now, in all fairness, the protest hasn’t turned legal yet. But still…people, there is a simple way to address the concern of the Koch brothers taking over regional media: take it over first, yourself.
