If you are up for conspiracy theories and those who push them, then check out this flashback that rings a few bells.
Glenn Greewald was on Tucker Carson and mentioned this oldie but goodie throwback to clandestine conspiracies CIA and intelligence ran back to the 50’s. Find this article interesting.
“What was Operation Mockingbird?
It was an alleged large-scale project undertaken by the CIA beginning in the 1950s in which they recruited American journalists into a propaganda network. The recruited journalists were put on a payroll by the CIA and instructed to write fake stories that promoted the views of the intelligence agency. Student cultural organizations and magazines were allegedly funded as fronts for this operation. “
“Frank Wisner, the director of the espionage and counter-intelligence branch, spearheaded the organization and was told to concentrate on “propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.”– https://allthatsinteresting.com/operation-mockingbird
But as the article concluded, without knowing the official name of that operation there is no way of knowing whether it was ever ended. We just don’t know anyway.
More interesting is it opens the Pandora’s box on conspiracies. I think today such an operation might push commie propaganda as a preference, rather than for anti-communist purposes. I cannot know media or CIA intelligence would not be involved in something like this now. Hell, they may volunteer to do it without encouragement.
Many of the MSM could be running their own conspiracy networks, all fashioned to deceive the public. Not far from what they did under Trump. It has never been so clear before. Strange how everything has turned 180 degrees yet remains similar.
Based on this real truth, we could only imagine what they may be capable of. In the interview, Greenwald went on to suggest the way they use our current media, chock full of former intelligence people, as sources for intelligence stories. (to field the narrative) Not even hiding the alliance. He referred to Brennan at MSNBC. But CNN is loaded: McCabe, Josh Campbell, James Clapper, Col. Hayden, former FBI Phil Mudd, and now .What a dream team.
Conveniently, according to script, many of these super-ex-intell vented their outrage at Tucker’s piece from Revolver News about FBI operatives working inside the January 6th riot. Phil Mudd lunged at a chance to say there is no way it could be true FBI informants were working inside the “insurrection” on 1/6. Per Phil’s usual, he claimed to be so mad he was on the verge of a heart attack due to this phony conspiracy story. Right, real loud like the script demands. It was actually comical.
Working hand and glove now — as they have during Trump’s term — on the narrative, who knows what intel/media are capable of doing? Add to it working informants, or agitprop coordiators, through FBI and who knows what they can come up with? This when domestic intelligence, or surveillance on Biden opponents appears their top priority. Makes Cosa Nostra look like a schoolyard game.
