‘Ordinary people’ launch effort to buy Tribune’s newspapers

The people behind the campaign to get the public to buy Tribune’s newspapers and keep them away from the Koch brothers know that “some might say we’re tilting at corporate windmills — but someone’s got to do it.” They add that “we need to get the conversation on media ownership started.”

And what if by some freak miracle we do begin to approach the ridiculous sum of $660 Million? (That would be weird, but weirder things have happened – trust us.) What if we really do change the game of Billionaires vs. The Rest Of Us? It can’t hurt to try, can it?

At last check, over $12,000 has been raised.
