Kochs bring their fake-grassroots organization to Steubenville
Not surprising given their Sinclair ownership, WTOV covers the astroturfing without once mentioning the Koch brothers, Americans for Prosperity, or the organization’s right-wing agenda
From Saturday’s WTOV’s news coverage:
"What the Grassroots Leadership Academy does is teach people how to drive real change in their local community," said trainer Ron Ferguson. "It teaches them how to get involved with things like business, education, community and government."
That's not quite how Sourcewatch describes the organization:
Grassroots Leadership Academy (GLA) is a training school for right-wing activists funded and run by the Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFPF). GLA states its mission as helping activists to "build the leadership skills you need to fight for freedom and against the progressive policies and false narratives of the left."
