Exposing the Tea Party’s Benefactors

On Saturday, Frank Rich did a great job picking up on Jane Mayer’s now-famous article in the New Yorker on the Koch brothers and drawing some very important historical parallels between the corporate tycoons and extremist libertarians who are funding relentless attacks against this president’s reforms and there predecessors in the New Deal and Great Society eras.

Rich focused on the Koches and Rupert Murdoch, while DownWithTyranny yesterday made sure another primary source of the Right’s well-stocked war chest, "Wall Street predator" Paul Singer, didn’t go overlooked, citing an important piece by Eric Lichtblau from Friday.

This is all incredibly important information, and the journalists and bloggers who are shining a spotlight on the Far Right’s biggest funders and their radical agendas should be commended.
