Top German Editor: CIA Bribing Journalists

October 7, 2014 by legitgov

Top German Editor: CIA Bribing Journalists [Duh!] 3 Oct 2014 Members of the German media are paid by the CIA in return for spinning the news in a way that supports US interests, and some German outlets are nothing more than PR appendages of NATO, according to a new book by Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany's largest newspapers...Operation Mockingbird, which began in the 1950s, was a secret CIA operation which recruited journalists to serve as mouthpieces for the American government. The program was officially terminated after it was exposed by the famous Church Committee investigations, but evidence of ongoing CIA influence over the media continues to accumulate. [I mean, can you listen to cable TV 'pundits' for more than five picoseconds and not arrive at the conclusion that the warmongering, corporate wh*res are not on the CIA payroll? It's a no-brainer.]
