Operation Mockingbird and the Cult of the Mockingbird Media

Rebecca A Wazny
The list author says: "Freedom of the press is a key component to a free and well informed society. When this component is compromised and the integrity of objective journalism subverted you can be certain that behind the smoke and mirrors justice herself is surely, somehow, somewhere, being held hostage. The only ransom demanded is that you pay attention to and obey whatever brand of propaganda and delusion they spoon feed you.

he activities, extent and even the existence of the CIA project remain in dispute: the operation was first called Mockingbird in Deborah Davis' 1979 book, Katharine the Great: Katharine Graham and her Washington Post Empire. Davis' book, detailing how the media had been recruited and infiltrated by the CIA for propaganda purposes, was controversial and not always accurate.

More evidence of Mockingbird's existence emerged in the 2007 memoir American Spy: My Secret History in the CIA, Watergate and Beyond, by convicted Watergate "plumber" E. Howard Hunt and The Mighty Wurlitzer: How the CIA Played America by Hugh Wilford (2008)."
