The CIA and the Media: Historical Fact #72

Overseas CIA outreach activities aimed at influencing foreign press personnel in the Cold War years and was aided by using the foremost labor organization for practicing journalists in the US, the American Newspaper Guild (ANG). “The ANG was a founder member of the International Federation of Journalists, a society of anticommunist newspapermen established in Brussels in 1952 in opposition to the Prague-based, communist-dominated International Organization of Journalists,” notes historian Hugh Wilford.

“Following a major expansion of the ANG’s international program in 1960, funded by seed money from the AFL-CIO and a grant from ‘a private philanthropy,’ an ANG staffer … was dispatched to Brussels to oversee free trade unionism and ‘professional journalism’ in Africa and, with occasional assistance from the Asia Foundation, the Far East. Meanwhile,” Wilford chronicles, “another ANG international affairs representative took up residence in Panama City to run the Inter-American Federation of Working Newspapermen’s Organization, a hemispheric trade union secretariat with close links to the CIA’s South American labor front, the American Institute of Free Labor Development.” Such endeavors were funded by “ANG’s International Affairs Fund, which in turn was subsidized by an assortment of foundations all later identified as CIA pass-throughs: The Graanary Fund, the Andrew Hamilton Fund, the Broad High Foundation, the Chesapeake Foundation, and the Warden Trust.”

    Etc. Etc. Etc…
    This is the Truth!
    I need your immediate help now!!!

    My Quantum Technological Revolution (and the theft of it) – John Brennan is a Murdering Torturing Thief as is this entire CIA / FBI / CSIS / CAF.

    This is Russia-Gate; Murder-Gate

    Russiagate is a botched CIA murder operation to have been conducted in Russia planned in conjunction with CSIS (little league CIA of canada) the root of which is the theft of my intellectual property to line their pockets – originally my millions (my Secure Administrative Management System) then my Trillions (the Quantum Technological Revolution that I own – Quantum Radio et al.). The purported leaders of our United States and this Earth have stolen my intellectual property and body and life with the full expectation of my murder (after multiple previous attempts). This is the Truth.
    These people are all guilty of High-Treason.

    I need your help now or I will be killed.
