Mediabistro Do you think @latimes and @chicagotribune can maintain editorial independence if bought by Koch brothers? mbist.ro/11Ecz1z

twitter@lucasmillerwsu First instinct says no b/c Koch bros want to buy papers as part of a larger strategy to promote a political agenda

twitter@hanelly Not without some serious friction.

twitterVivian Lake Of course not, that's why they're buying them.

twitterViktor Kovalenko Probably the papers can secure some editorial independence. But it depends fully on editors and their intentions to stay independent.

twitterJustin Boucher I don't think either of those papers are "editorial independent" anyway!
