5. It's just a squabble amongst foundation groups...

here's a bit at the last that explains:

Others defended Mr. Cohen’s scholarship, if not his conclusions. “I don’t agree with many of Cohen’s recent positions on Ukraine,” said Michael David-Fox, a professor at Georgetown, who signed the letter. “It’s precisely because he is in a minority that this is an especially important case.”

When going up against the Neocons/NeoLibs one will be a minority...therefore this explains what is going on from the perspective that Neocons/Neolibs want to re-start the Cold War and the funding dried up for reporting on honest scholarly research. Cohen got a grant from his wife to further his work and the PTB got upset because only their views on CNN, CBS, NBC and Charlie Rose should be heard.

Therefore a way to go after "The Nation Magazine" and trash Cohen because he was reporting stories no one wanted to have aired and because he has appeared on RT which high people in Obama Administration want to disallow the American People to be able to watch here in the USA. Definitely a violation of Free Speech since Cable Companies have it available to those who subscribe to "International Tier" on their Cable to watch news from other countries for Business or because they are here in the USA and want home news along with those of us who are tired of our USA PAP and want to hear otherviews.

So...they have Andy Lack, John Kerry, President Obama and others trashing RT America who reportson stories popular with American Liberals who have no Voice and RT/Russia and Europe reporting international news that's contrary to Radio Free America, MSM Corporate Sponsored Media for he Masses of Americans suddenly getting huge ratings and they just can't deal with it. So they begin to attack anyone they can find to stop it all. Go after "The Nation" and Cohen because of the association and now they are even after Noam Chomsky and Chris Hedges getting their "on the payroll peeps" to write screeds warning Americans that they are NOT to listen to those people because they are Dangers to American Values....etc.

It's really getting ridiculous...if it wasn't so serious a violation of the Rights of Americans to watch, read anything they want to pay for. That's Capitalism that they love to praise except when it hurts their grand plans to filter what the corporations and the Military Industrial Complex don't want the average American to be aware of.
