Citizen Koch is a 2013 documentary film directed by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal concerning the political influence of American plutocrats following the Citizens United ruling, and of the titular Koch brothers in particular. The film also focuses on the election of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and his relationship with the Koch Brothers. Citizen Koch was completed using funds from a successful Kickstarter campaign after allegations that PBS pulled funding initially promised to it. Since at least half of PBS' funding relies on donations, it has been alleged that financial support for the film was pulled because the content was not favourable to the Koch brothers, who are major donors to the network. Regarding the allegations of censorship, and The New Yorker article which helped bring the case to public attention, the PBS ombudsman has stated that: Although some of [Jane] Mayer's reporting about "Citizen Koch" is based on unnamed sources, the strength of the article does reflect the internal concerns that can or did, as the thrust of her article suggests, lead to intense internal pressures that come to equal self-censorship. The reporting and quotes throughout appear convincing. Show Less
