Right-wing, extremist billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch have ended their pursuit of the Los Angeles Times and other Tribune Co. newspapers after months of protests by community groups, journalists and other free press advocates.

Art Pulaski, executive secretary-treasurer of the California Labor Federation, called the decision by the Kochs to abandon their efforts to buy the Tribune properties, “a major victory for proponents of a free and democratic press.”
