Fw: New York Times CIA Connection Revealed

The story below from shows the collusion that goes on between members of the mainstream media and the CIA.  The New York Times over the past several months has been devoting  large amounts of coverage to the civil war in Syria.  Not surprisingly, the paper has slanted their stories on behalf of the CIA backed rebels. 

Operation Mockingbird refers to a CIA project began after World War II to recruit and "influence" members of the news media, both print and broadcast.  One of the principle founders of Operation Mockingbird was the late Frank Wisner, Sr.   Frank Wisner famously referred to the CIA as a "Mighty Wurlitzer" that could play any tune.  Keep that in mind the next time a left gatekeeper tells you "9/11 is a distraction."

This particular incident revolves around a story dealing with the upcoming movie "Zero Dark Thirty," concerning the raid on the alleged bin Laden compound.  The film, which was produced in conjunction with the U.S. military and CIA, is scheduled for release in December.  ~ B.B.

Emails obtained by advocacy group Judicial Watch have exposed the fact that a senior New York Times employee, who covers national security for the newspaper, provided the CIA with advanced copies of an article another writer was preparing that was somewhat critical of the White House over the upcoming Hollywood film about the killing of Osama bin Laden.

The reporter, Mark Mazzetti, forwarded an advance copy of a Maureen Dowd column to a CIA spokesperson a full two days before it was set to be published. The article, published August 7th 2011, discussed the upcoming Kathryn Bigelow-Mark Boal film "Zero Dark Thirty", and criticized the Obama administration for having "outsourced the job of manning up the president's image to Hollywood."

Mazzetti's emails (below) show that he sent the piece to the CIA's Marie Harf, on August 5th 2011, writing: "this didn't come from me… and please delete after you read. See, nothing to worry about!"
