This week on the de-program James digs up an old New York Times report on the CIA’s “mighty wurlitzer,” their global propaganda network that included hundreds of journalists, editors, academics, publishing houses, newspapers, magazines and front companies. Although the Times piece is, as expected, a limited hangout, it does provide some interesting pieces of the global intelligence propaganda puzzle.

How the CIA Plants News Stories in the Media


  1. If you haven’t read Joel Whitney’s Finks, it’s apropos to these questions. There are quite a few little nuggets in it, some new ones that I was unfamiliar with (John Wayne, CIA asset, anyone?*) and certainly a few ltd hang-outs, maybe some modified, it’s hard to know. Anyway it’s a fairly revealing history, the author’s family relations (potentially) notwithstanding.


    *Makes the On Wings of Eagles reference in Hail! Caesar make a lot more sense

  2. Another interesting book to read re: CIA//media/JFK/Mary Pinchot Meyer (ex-wife of Cord Meyer) is the book “Mary’s Mosaic” by Peter Janney. Lot’s of unfortunately juicy info re: CIA and their nefarious operation which often lead to ‘suicided’ people’s as well as outright assassinations and the cover-ups upon cover-ups to cover their cover-ups.

    • Yes, a must book for those interested in the murder of JFK.

      Mary Pinchot was married to Cord but left him.

      Cord, with his CIA friends and fascists, started The World Anti Communist League (WACL) whose documented tentacles reached around the globe.

      Mary was the person who most visited JFK during his presidency at the White House, according to Secret Service logs.

      Also, she was part of the Timothy Leary and Hitchcock LSD house in MA. and it is claimed that she turned JFK on to both marijuana and low doses of acid.

      James Anslinger, of the CIA, knew she had a diary and Ben Bradley, who was married to Mary’s sister and ran the Washington Post when Graham left the position, also knew.

      Anslinger broke into her garage and found the diary. He said he gave it to Bradley who said he burned it.

      By the way, Phil Graham who ran the paper in the 1950’s was also found shotgunned to the head.

      Bradley is dead now, so is his wife, so is Mary so is Graham and so is JFK and Cord Meyer.

      When Meyer was dying in a rest home in his late years he was asked who he thought killed his ex-wife, Mary and he responded that it was the same people who took down JFK.

  3. Not only the CIA plants fake/biased stories it seems..

    From Bill Browder – who is wanted by Russia for tax evasion and planting false stories about Russia

    The last one reminds me of how US veterans are working for Saudi intelligence to hunt political opposition.

  4. James,

    I don’t believe that was a mis-transcription, (condensed):

    “It’s the old business of Parkinson’s Law, a question of people flaying too much idle time and too much idle money.”

    The following is largely quotes and paraphrasing (based on my current understanding) from here:

    “Parkinson’s Law” is:

    “The amount of noise generated by a change is inversely proportional to the complexity of the change.”

    This is also known as “Bike-shedding.”

    Putting it simply:

    If you want to build a bike shed, the amount of people that will have an input regarding which color to paint the shed is a much greater number than the amount of people whom will provide input toward the type of wood from which it should be built.

    The structural integrity is obviously more important, but also more complex, so the audience which can contribute input is necessarily smaller than something merely cosmetic.

    This is a massively common concept (and important to spot!) in software engineering, but I suspect it’s also quite common in basically any project involving more than one person.

    It is for this same reason (again, most of this is found in the link above, with more context and better written), that one can expect to walk into a boardroom and present a plan for an atomic power plant, and also expect to receive exactly zero questions about what material to use for the exhaust pipes of the heating element. This is because it’s so complex that everyone in the room would figure you’ve got it taken care of, otherwise you wouldn’t be talking in the first place.

    Thusly, as they say, “don’t sweat the small stuff” — ask the big questions.

    Lastly, and perhaps most importantly:

    Don’t prevent someone from building a bike-shed simply because you don’t like the color they might paint it.

    • Aphix, I thought James was merely questioning the odd use of the word “flaying,” which I chalked up to the way software “(mis)reads” words that were typed years ago. The only word that makes sense to me, and which looks a bit like “flaying,” is “having.” 🙂

      Of course, no one who studiously keeps up with the reams of Corbett Report material could be accused of “having too much idle time. . . .”

      • I read that myself, at first, and after reflection I think flaying works perfectly given the context: The context being the splitting apart and utter shredding of valuable time and resources — I could be totally off though, haha.

  5. Makes me wonder if first test of propaganda system was the British invasion by the Beetles and Stones ? It was a clear demonstration of the power of media of the day , just imagine what they plan for this generation fondelslabs !

  6. No of course they don’t do anything like that today…oh apart from this guy, Udo Ulfkotte, who confessed to RT just before he died of a trademark CIA heart attack in 2014.

  7. Jeb, the cultural brain washing runs long and deep and your observation brought a wave of, programming by the networks, from deeply embedded memories I have from childhood. Remember The Man From Uncle and its nemesis THRUSH. The discovery of humor to go even deeper into a child’s psyche . Get Smart and its nemesis KIOS. Child abuse.

  8. I’m not trying to promote a show or anything but I’m looking for an honest assessment.. I’ve been listening for over ten years, religiously, & have recently came across Suspiciousobservers & the Diehold Foundation on YouTube. I need to know how much faith to have in them & I haven’t found anyone to let me know their thoughts. Very seldom will they talk about the same topics as you James but they certainly follow your philosophy in many ways. I understand how busy you must be & I will be patient for some kind of answer.. this is extremely important to me & I will continue to ask. Do you believe the theory’s of Ben Davidson or Douglas Vogt are wrong?

  9. Globalists Gone Wild

    In this article, the Politico writer ruminates that the “elite” class of the world gather at their various private retreats and forums because they just want to be included. They just want to be in the “in” social circles and be one of the cool kids. That’s all.

    On the positive side, people are social creatures—they like to be liked—and most of the events on the annual elite calendar are, in part, genuinely devoted to discussion of ideas and ways to make humanity better. WEF’s long-time slogan is, “Committed to improving the state of the world.”
