Good news from Courage Campaign: "You demanded that WGBH -- the country’s largest, most influential PBS station -- free itself from the corrupting influence of the Koch Brothers, and this past week we delivered the message in style! Dozens of activists from Courage Campaign and our partner Forecast the Facts were all over the Boston papers, including the front page of the Boston Herald.(1) They presented our petition with more than 120,000 signatures to the WGBH Board of Trustees. One was wearing an Elmo costume, which really caught the media's attention. WGBH cannot create scientific programs like NOVA, which spread knowledge on important issues like climate change, while it also has a prominent climate change denier and flagrant polluter on its Board." (FYI: The Koch brothers also funded the Tea Party and the shut down.)
