Who are the Koch Brothers?

I tried to figure out who they are exactly on the web, but all the links are just liberals bashing them. Could someone give me their most unbiased answer? Thank you.

    First, let me recommend you contact your library. They'll have biography reference books/articles/online databases that can give you a more unbiased background than you'll get from many regular web sources.

    That said, the Wikipedia articles on both brothers seem to play it pretty much down-the-middle, listing their accomplishments and activities while also acknowledging the surrounding controversies:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Koch

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_H._Koch

    It's often the case that Wikipedia articles "settle in" to the details that supporters/detractors can agree upon. Beyond that, most web sources present information about them with a very strong political perspective from one side or the other, so it's important to understand where articles are coming from...another good reason to work with a librarian!

    They 'head up' Koch Industries (mainly oil products/producing/chemicals etc)....the 2nd largest private company in the US + being a billion+ $ turnover company per year + The Koch Foundation.

    Supposed huge charity givers....for different things.

    Their individual wealth is....'billions each'....equaling being 'untouchable'..!!

    Entrepreneurs and business men....with worldwide (financial) interests.
