"What’s In Store For Europe In 2023?" By the CIA (aka RFE/RL as a ruse to deceive readers)

Recommended Posts


When one starts reading the OilPrice posted article, it becomes evident that bias and agenda are at play in the message of the article, although not many people read anymore...and thus the CIA messages probably work better on TV News and movies.  RFE/RL are probably happy that at least they got some mileage on this article.  I doubt many folks will read and absorb it, because it reads like a White Paper.

What’s In Store For Europe In 2023?

By RFE/RL staff - Dec 25, 2022, 12:00 PM CST  -


A person has to use alternative search engines and keywords to dredge up the dirty nitty gritty about RFE/RL Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty, and some of the crap they participated in.  An easy to find 1977 New York Times article pointing out the ruse is here...

Worldwide Propaganda Network Built by the C.I.A. Subject Index Files/C Disk/CIA Reporters New York Times Series 12-25-77/Item 07.pdf

But there is this aspect to the New York Times...

The CIA, the NY Times, and the Art of the Limited Hangout


...The report then goes on to detail a number of media entities that the CIA owned or controlled during the period in question (primarily the 1950s and '60s), including:

  • Radio stations like Radio Free Europe, Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia and Free Cuba Radio;
  • Newspapers like The Rome Daily American, The Okinawa Morning Star, The Manila Times, The Bangkok World and The Tokyo Evening News;
  • Magazines and journals like Quest, East Europe and Paris Match.
  • Book publishers like Allied Pacific Printing in India and the Asia Research Centre in Hong Kong.

Perhaps more important to the CIA than its control over these media organs, however, were the journalists and editors who were willing to aid the agency in publishing its propaganda. Some were on the CIA payroll directly, others worked on contract. Names dropped in the article range from the familiar—like Tom Braden and William F. Buckley, Jr.—to the long-forgotten. Readers are left with the impression that the agency's propaganda efforts were (emphasis on past tense) more extensive and far-reaching than anyone had imagined to that point....


And so things go in this world....
