I think this quote by Richard M. Cohan sound eerily similar to the following quote:
"It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion."
~ Joseph Paul Goebbles

"Impose our agenda" Doesn't get much plainer than that does it?

Larry, E'ville

Admission of what thiking people already knew. Too bad the masses have no clue.

Carol, Georgia

Cohan's journalism card should be pulled. Makes me wonder if the the journalists of today even know there is a Journalists Creed, written about one hundred years ago.

This why I only watch the local news stations for the weather and local news and Fox news network for the National and International news.

CBS, NBC, ABC are nothing but full and decades long indoctrination tools of the Progressive Washington Establishment

That's the prerogative of the owners of the press. We should always remember that EVERYTHING that is published is the opinion of somebody somewhere. To blindly believe is laziness of the mind. True discernment is to consider 'why are they giving us this story and not this other story?' Know the agendas of the specific owners of the media, and one can more easily sift through the fluff. For the most part, whatever the government is saying is most likely completely the opposite. I no longer watch broadcast television news, and the longer I stay away from it, the more obvious its intent becomes when I happen to see it in public places. Television is the opiate of the masses.

That's OK. Better that he be honestly outspoken,makes it much easier to distrust the lying thieving weasels.

Validate your 2nd Amendment Rights. Carry.

First amendment means freedom to inform . He feels it's the freedom to persuade.

I'm not sure how to rate this with stars - five stars + for the forthright accuracy or, a thumbs down for the absolute demonic devastation the realization there related has effected. Welcome to Amerika, where the occupying statist theocracy, with its seminaries (government schools) and forth branch of ecclesiastical propagators (MSM) have so changed the narrative that natural/constitutional/common law, liberty, justice, and nature's endowed inalienable rights are all unrecognizable myths, rapped in enigmas - possibly associated to a fabled land far - far away in a time long forgotten.

cal, I'm OK with persuasion rather than imposition. It's the difference between journalism and influence-peddling.
