Democratic campaign against the Koch brothers Criticized; Who are these billionaires anyway?

Hey, isn't that the point? 

Check out this clueless media coverage from The Hill:
Democrats are doubling down on their Koch brothers strategy even though most people don’t know who the conservative billionaire industrialists are.
Again, isn't that the point? Not missing a beat, The Hill took a bizarre jab at the Democrats for coming up with a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. FEC and McCutcheon v. FEC. Unlike the GOP’s pathetic 50 attempts to kill ObamaCare, it’s the Democrats who are just wasting everybody’s time proposing something they know won’t pass anyway, and has massive public opinion poll support.
The amendment has virtually no chance of passing this year 
The Hill kept up its knock on Democrats:
The Democratic game plan carries risk because polls show many people still don’t know who the Koch brothers are. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Wednesday showed that half of those surveyed do not recognize the names of Charles and David Koch and 20 percent have a neutral view of them. A recent George Washington University Battleground survey found that 52 percent of respondents don’t know who the Koch’s are.

Schumer said that will change.
And isn't that the point? Here's a nice piece featuring Esquire Magazine's Charlie Pierce, on the Koch brothers:
