Suggest Jeff Cohen as a host of "The Real News"

Jeff Cohen

A TV news program produced by progressives is planned to debut in one year. The show is called "The Real News."

They are choosing three hosts now.

I've suggested Jeff Cohen, who is an advisor to their network (Independent World Television) and who appeared in the documentary "Outfoxed." He was a producer of MSNBC's Donahue and the founder of FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting). He has a new book out called "Cable News Confidential."

Please also suggest Jeff Cohen as one of the three hosts.

The button to suggest a host is here.

18. The idea is that it would be shown on "Link TV" of DISH satellite...
...and on the internet.

And if they can get it more places, all the better.

So people with cable TV or DirectTV satellite may not be able to watch it on their TV sets. But I'd be open to switching to DISH satellite if this show actually airs and it's good.
