Reid, Pelosi to attend Koch movie screening
By BURGESS EVERETT | May 15, 2014 The Koch brothers are headed to the big screen — and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are coming along for the ride.
The two congressional Democratic leaders will appear at a screening in the Capitol of “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition” — a documentary that Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.) participated in.
Both Reid and Minority Leader Pelosi (D-Calif.) will participate in a question and answer session as well…
We wonder how many libels they will spew there, without Congressional immunity? Hopefully, some Koch lawyers will attend.
The screening will be held on Tuesday evening in the Capitol Visitor Center.
The Visitor Center Reid had built because he got sick of the stinking tourists.
The movie is directed by Robert Greenwald and is a midterm update to a 2012 film of the same name.
So it’s a re-run.
In an email, Koch Industries General Counsel called it “troubling that Senior Democratic party leaders are using taxpayer resources to publicize this partisan propaganda.” …
They do it all the time. In fact, that is just about all they do.
“It is disappointing, but not surprising, that Senator Reid and Representative Pelosi have teamed up with Robert Greenwald, a failed Hollywood producer who now makes obscure partisan attack videos,” Mark Holden said. “Mr. Greenwald made a series of videos about Koch back in 2012 which were filled with lies, distortions, and misrepresentations about Koch.”
Why not sue them? Enough is enough. Meanwhile, the anti-Koch jihad is being expanded by other Democrat front groups.

American Bridge launches Koch project
By MIKE ALLEN | May 15, 2014
American Bridge 21st Century Foundation on Thursday will announce a research and rapid-response digital project aimed at the Koch brothers, launching with a national and D.C. cable ad buy and three full-time staffers.
American Bridge founder and chairman David Brock called the project “a research-and-communications, first-of-its-kind war room that’s targeting the Koch brothers and also the GOP candidates who are benefiting” from their spending…
All in the name of increasing open political dialogue and reducing the bitter partisanship everyone decries.
From Discover The Networks:
American Bridge 21st Century
Established in November 2010 by Media Matters founder David Brock, American Bridge 21st Century (AB21)… this group conducts opposition research designed to help Democratic political candidates defeat their Republican foes.
To help achieve this goal, AB21 assigns a team of professional trackers to closely monitor the words and actions of selected Republican candidates running in key congressional races. Equipped with state-of-the-art cameras and computers, these trackers monitor what the candidates say at media-covered public events and during interviews with the press; they also personally attend campaign events and surreptitiously record what is said there…
By October 2012, AB21 trackers had logged more than 300,000 miles following candidates across the United States. The war-room researchers, meanwhile, had collected and archived thousands of pages of data and thousands of hours of video. All of these items are filed with time-coded reports, to make it easier for the researchers to subsequently locate potentially incriminating material to post on Twitter and YouTube, or to send to other Democratic operatives for use in attack ads…
AB21’s fundraising efforts have been bolstered greatly by David Brock’s network of Media Matters benefactors. Its top contributor is the billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who gave the organization $1 million in 2012 and another $500,000 in 2013…
Which shouldn’t be surprising, given that young George Soros was only too happy to help the Nazis round up his fellow Jews. Birds of a feather.
