Corporate Mockingbird Media: The Washington Post Backed By the CIA?
Sunday, January 19, 2014
For years independent journalists and researchers have expressed dismay with the close connections between major media companies and the CIA. From Operation Mockingbird onward, the CIA has kept certain journalists and news publications in their pocket, using them to push disinformation at key times throughout the years.
Now this connection has become even more clear with the revelations that the owner of The Washington Post has clear-cut ties and business deals with the Central Intelligence Agency.
The newspaper’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, just so happens to be the founder and CEO of Amazon which recently landed a 600 million dollar contract with the CIA. That’s right, a newspaper that already has a major history of cover ups and disinformation (think ignoring Bilderberg for years) is now owned by an elitist who directly profits from the Central Intelligence Agency.
Thankfully many journalists, including certain mainstream reporters are horrified with the connection and have publicly demanded that The Washington Post acknowledge this fact whenever they report on the CIA.
