It is vital for people to hear accurate news. It helps us to make informed decisions . We do not benefit from propaganda. Free speech .... not everyone in our world has that. Take it away and what do you get? A very dangerous place for everyone. Free speech has been one of the cornerstones of our nation. If that is taken from us then like a house of cards this nation will tumble.

Koch Brothers money is tainted and deserves more scrutiny by Marketplace and other public media outlets. We cannot possibly think that Marketplace will never give fair coverage if they provide major funding. Whoever buys the plug can pull it. I've worked for APR and also NPR's KCRW.

I's signing because I have read Dark Money and I have researched the Koch Brothers... I am sick and disgusted that they are funding, and this have some control, over your "unbiased" presentation of the news.

We need a free press, not one paid by the rich not to suppress investigations of them.

Koch Industries has been advertised as an entity that makes the broadcast of Marketplace possible. That
sounds, to me, like a ridiculous breach of the public's trust perpetrated directly on Public Radio. The free press ideal stresses the independence of reporting from the moneyed interests of industry. Anything less, in my opinion, would and should implicate anyone inv
