How the Kochs Tried (and Failed) to Discredit Reporter Jane Mayer After She Exposed their Empire

In 2010, Jane Mayer published an extensive profile of the billionaire Koch brothers in The New Yorker, exploring their quiet effort to funnel more than $100 million to right-wing causes and undermine President Obama’s policy agenda. Six years later, Mayer reveals her subjects responded by hiring a private firm to discredit her reporting. Mayer details the episode in her new book on the Kochs and their right-wing, ultra-rich allies, "Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right."
