John Stewart is not a huge fan of Koch Industries' latest round of commercials. So after the company bought advertising time "The Daily Show," Stewart created a revised, in his opinion more accurate, version of the spot.
The original commercial -- which features smiling workers and a crawling baby --emphasizes the Kochs' origins in the "heartland," noting that the company "[builds] on each other's ideas to create more opportunities for people everywhere." Stewart detailed the brothers' history using their extreme wealth to back conservative causes through dark money organizations, before offering up his own adjustments: "We're Koch industries, the next generation of Robber Barons," the new ad said. "Bending the democratic process to our will since 1980."
