Watch Live: Should the Koch Brothers Own the Tribune Newspapers?

Watch Live: Should the Koch Brothers Own the Tribune Newspapers?

This morning, the panel "Should the Koch Brothers Own the Tribune Newspapers?" is discussing the potential sale of the group of newspapers to Charles and David Koch at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., at 9 a.m. EDT. As we've covered on the blog before, the Kochs are interested in buying the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Baltimore Sun and other leading newspapers owned by the Tribune Co.  

Panelists tackling this discussion are Ryan Grim, The Huffington Post's Washington bureau chief; John Nichols, a Washington correspondent for The Nation; Christopher Assaf, video editor at The Baltimore Sun; Tia Lessin, producer and director of the documentary "Citizen Koch"; and Lena Williams, retired senior writer of The New York Times.
