Gina Rinehart

If you saw Hungrybeast's piece on the Koch Brothers, you might have thought "Only in America...". That is until this week's episode featured a summary of Gina Rinehart.

As Hungrybeast explain, she Australia's richest person (the money coming from mining) with her personal wealth going from $2 billion to $9 billion just last year.

She has now purchased Channel 10 and Fairfax media for "her voice to be heard". So if you start seeing a bunch of stuff on those stations / newspapers, criticising action on climate change - you can probably figure out why.
