The EyeOpener- CIA in the News Media

CIA News: A Brief History of Media Manipulation by U.S. Intelligence 

It is a well-known and uncontested fact that the CIA has enjoyed a long and intimate relationship with some of the largest news organizations in the world, and has used this relationship to manipulate, censor, and even fabricate news stories in support of its own covert agenda.

Over the years, numerous specific examples of the agency's manipulation of the news media have surfaced, including multiple instances where stories that had been outright fabricated by CIA assets had resulted in the justification for military intervention. And, recently we witnessed how the CIA steps in to stop the publication of certain stories when the agency threatened independent documentary filmmakers John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski from publishing the names of two recently identified CIA agents, Alfreda Frances Bikowsky and Michael Anne Casey.

It is no longer disputed that the CIA has maintained an extensive and ongoing relationship with news organizations and journalists, and multiple, specific acts of media manipulation have now been documented. But as long as the public continues to ignore the influence of intelligence agencies in shaping or even fabricating news stories, the agency will continue to be able to set the policy that drives the American war machine at will.

This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett presenting documented facts and examples of the CIA’s extensive and ongoing relationship with news organizations and journalists: ‘CIA in the News Media’

    I watched and read this with immense interest, I have had a great interest in this for some time, I live in the UK and things work the same over here. It would seem this is a far reaching and integrated technology that is one part of a public opinion machine that not only forms opinion and makes things happen; but ridicules any opposition automatically. It’s versatile and adaptable towards various situations and easily accepts secondary functions and so on. A little example of my thinking regarding this is the fact that it appears to be a way of partly controlling the media; however I saw a movie about just that on TV last night. Since the movie was a complete fantasy for entertainment only; it overshadows and debases any thinking regarding such happening in reality, it becomes a ‘conspiracy theory’ in the pejorative sense.

  4. Thanks James for bringing this to the forefront again. It’s time that more of the American public realized that our news media are circulating nothing more than preprogramed propaganda. This “perception management” is why our great country is in such sad shape. Should we wonder now if the “recession” is anything more than manipulation of the world’s people??? It is true that whomever owns the media can manipulate the world. We, the people of the world, need to boycott the mass media. The Presstitutes have no scrupples & are nothing more than paid sleeze bags gossipers. They have given legitimate journalists a black eye. I have subcribed, one less to go 🙂
