Letter: Wylys no different than Soros or Bloomberg

Wylys no different than Soros or Bloomberg

As I read Karl Herchenroeder’s story about Sam Wyly (The Aspen Times, “Despite verdict, Wylys regarded as generous,” May 15), I began to wonder why it is that when the Wylys or Kochs donate to causes they support, trying to change public opinion, it’s vile. Why is it when Soros or Bloomberg do the same thing it’s honorable? There is definitely a bias in the media that is trying to control the public as much as any of the “rich donors”.
