American Prospect on Koch-IDW connections

Good article in the American Prospect: Why Should We Care About Faux Free-Speech Warriors? Because the Koch Brothers Are Paying Their Bills.

The article doesn't have much that hasn't been discussed at Pinkerite, and no evidence for the likely Koch-Quillette connection is provided.

However this was new and interesting:
Bret Weinstein was hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Free Speech Week, a project of their Center for the Study of Institutions and Innovation — funded by, you guessed it, the Charles G. Koch Foundation.
I'll say it again. When all is said and done, there will be evidence that virtually every member of the "intellectual dark web" was funded, one way or another, by Koch.
