Petition Drive To Get Documentary On Public Television Stations

Petition drives are asking individual public television stations, including PBS Arizona, to air a documentary called "Citizen Koch". It is about money in politics and the two billionaires, Charles and David Koch, who support conservative causes. The film's co-director, Tia Lessin, feels that a film that does not get a national broadcast does not really get seen.
 
The filmmakers tried unsuccessfully to make "Citizen Koch" part of the PBS "Independent Lens" series, and secured final financing through a Kickstarter campaign. Petition drives are aimed at getting airdates for the film on PBS affiliates in cities such as Phoenix, Denver, Colorado and Los Angeles, California and on the PBS national network.
