INTERVIEW: investigative journalist Alex Kotch on the Koch brothers and “campus free speech”



In this June 22, 2017 interview, reporter Dan Young speaks with investigative journalist Alex Kotch. Kotch describes the activities of far right billionaires — including the Koch, DeVos, and Mercer families — who fund college speaking tours by right-wing propagandists and provocateurs. Kotch also describes how the same wealthy funders are behind the creation of so-called campus free speech model legislation aimed at crushing left-wing student protests and activism, including banning protests of the same right-wing provocateurs these billionaires are bringing to college campuses. Kotch, who now works for the International Business Times, has researched and written on this topic previously in pieces published at Alternet and Salon.
