Reader comments about this quote:
The press is operating with an agenda...they are not merely reporting.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary
 
ok, but the quote does not address that the medium of reporting as a whole, is nothing more than a closely controlled 4th branch of government, complete with a propagandizing agenda.
 -- Mike, Norwalk
 
And if there is no news to report, they will make some up.
 -- jim k, Austin, Tx
