Exclusive To Power Line: Koch Industries Responds To New York Times Smears

 

 

 

 

” Indeed. It is revealing to compare Charles and David Koch with the owners and managers of the New York Times Company. The Koch brothers employ a growing, highly-paid work force of 60,000 in the United States, around one-third of whom are unionized. Koch Industries enjoys excellent relationships with its unions. The New York Times Company, on the other hand, employs a shrinking, largely ill-paid work force, and is embroiled in a long-running feud with its unions.

  Koch Industries and its subsidiaries produce tangible products that enrich the lives of Americans–among other things, Koch transports and refines oil, makes products that are used in construction, and manufactures a wide array of consumer products that are staples in most American homes. The New York Times Company produces nothing but shoddy left-wing journalism that is of questionable benefit to anyone.

  Then we have the roles of the two companies in their communities. Koch Industries and its subsidiaries have been recognized countless times for their many contributions to the communities where they operate. It is fair to say that there is no better corporate citizen than Koch. To take just one instance, Koch and its subsidiaries have been honored hundreds of times by the EPA for their environmental stewardship, which is second to none. And, as most people know, Charles and David Koch are two of the world’s most generous philanthropists. David alone has donated well over $1 billion dollars for medical research, the arts, and so on.

  The New York Times? Not so much.”
