Koch Brothers Funding MSNBC Interns

The Washington Free Beacon reports:
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tried to tie the Koch Brothers to a Florida free market group on Monday by noting that the Kochs have ties to the Institute for Humane Studies (IHS), which has paid stipends to interns at the group.
Maddow did not mention that IHS has also paid students to intern at MSNBC, according to its website.
Yikes, the IHS has gone a long way (in the wrong direction) from the days it hosted conferences that included speakers such as Murray Rothbard and Friedrich Hayek.

But, I'm sure the Horwitzian libertarians think this is great. Cozying up to the lefty, interventionist, "cosmopolitan intellectuals"  and all.

  1. I've seen the Institute for Humane Studies t-shirts from 2012: they have Rothbard's face on them.
