Public Broadcasting Service (PBS): Reverse your decision to censor Koch brothers documentary

This is an urgent matter of basic freedom of the press. Under pressure from the billionaire Koch brothers, who have given PBS $23 million, PBS has censored a critical documentary on Big Money and politics, produced by an Academy Award-nominated team. This is a very dangerous move that must be reversed. We must pressure PBS to reverse this censorship, and send the Koch brothers and Big Money a message that they can't censor the press--no matter how much money they donate.

Citizens must unite and give PBS the support and pressure it needs to reverse this dangerous decision. We must show the Koch brothers and other Big Money power brokers that they can't censor a free press--no matter how much money they throw around.

We respectfully urge you to reverse PBS' decision to censor the new Koch brothers documentary by an Academy Award-nominated team. This is a vital matter of basic freedom of the press, and we can't let the Koch brothers and other wealthy power-brokers decide what airs and what doesn't. We appeal to your commitment to a free press and public interest journalism, and urge you to reverse this dangerous censorship today.
