Default PBS Documentary on the 1% and politics shut down by Koch Bros

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2...social_retweet

Its a long article, here is the TLDR:

Quote:
ITVS backed out of the partnership because they came to fear the reaction our film would provoke. David Koch, whose political activities are featured in the film, happens to be a public-television funder and a trustee of both WNET and WGBH. This wasn’t a failed negotiation or a divergence of visions; it was censorship, pure and simple.” The filmmakers consider this an ironic turn: “It’s the very thing our film is about—public servants bowing to pressures, direct or indirect, from high-dollar donors.”

here is the documentary, its quite good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6niWzomA_So
