Chicagoans protest Koch brothers buying Tribune’s newspapers

At a protest in Chicago Wednesday, demonstrators expressed dismay about the possibility of David and Charles Koch buying Tribune’s newspapers. It’s kind of hard to tell from tweets how many people are outside Tribune Tower. StandUp Chicago says it’s “dozens,” while Keith Phipps says the protest is “small but vocal.”


Here’s another photo.

    These are probably paid, professional protesters hired by the Emanuel-Obama clique that runs Chicago.

  • sargeh

    22 protesters. Is it really worth a headline? And a right-wing takeover? This small group apparently has never heard of “The Colonel.”

    Protester mght have more oomph if he could spell “Takover” [sic].
    Sure glad HE isn’t buying the Trib.
