'The Nation's duplicity'

Recommended Posts

The following pull-out gem is from a Dec. 17 article in "The Nation" titled "Why Are the Media Taking the CIA’s Hacking Claims at Face Value?"

by James Carden: "In 1977, Carl Bernstein published an exposé of a CIA program known as Operation Mockingbird, a covert program involving, according to Bernstein, 'more than 400 American journalists who in the past 25 years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.' Bernstein found that in 'many instances' CIA documents revealed that 'journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.'” 

Carden conspicuously omitted any mention of Max Holland of the magazine's editorial board who has been published by journals run by the CIA and also has appeared on the CIA's website.
