Corporate/ChiCom Media In Full China Propaganda Mode Now

Here are some examples:

Bloomberg:

Coronavirus Is Making China's Model Look Better and Better

The democratic world order survived the crash of 2008. It may not be so fortunate this time.

They mean China's authoritarian communist "model" looks better and better.

Who wrote this? No, I know the name "Hal Brands" is on the article.

But who commissioned it?

Is Hal Brands just a longtime fan of Chinese Communism? I know Tom Friedman is. Maybe this pining for the brutal communist Chinese tyranny is widespread in the media, where men of slight shoulders and ample waistlines perhaps have the same hero worship of Big Bad Chinese Government Bullies that little kids do of baseball players or superheroes.


The coronavirus saga is also certain to set off another round of debate on the merits of democracy and authoritarianism. The irony is abundant. It was actually the authoritarian characteristics of the Chinese system that initially allowed the virus to spread, and some democracies -- notably South Korea and Taiwan -- have done remarkably well in responding to the outbreak. Yet the fact that China subsequently claimed to have gotten a handle on the epidemic by energetically enforcing a draconian lockdown of the affected population, while the world’s leading democracy dithered in its own response, will be used by proponents of authoritarianism to argue that their system is best equipped for crisis.


More recent events are further advancing the narrative. As America struggles to test its citizens and build adequate stockpiles of basic health-care supplies, such as masks, the Chinese government (and prominent Chinese firms) are providing supplies to countries such as Italy and even the U.S. itself. Beijing has promised additional funds to aid World Health Organization programs in poor countries, and the Communist Party propaganda arm has touted these contributions for all they are worth, while also alleging that the virus somehow originated in the U.S.

"Providing" supplies? You mean selling supplies?

This is propaganda on behalf of a hostile communist power -- it's deliberately written to make a simple sale sound like a charitable contribution.

Bloomberg and Hal Brands weren't the only corporate shills pretending that China's routine sale of medical equipment (to countries they infected) was some kind of example of big-hearted international gallantry. The New York Times also decided to portray a sale as some kind of humanitarian aid.

Why?

Why did they both make this same odd choice?

Then they claim that China's disappearing of people who told the world about the disease was just "clumsy" public relations work:

Again, who commissioned this piece?

Who "helped"?

Who were the... well-informed sources in the Chinese government who decided to reach out and tell a tale? Who were the well-paid shadow propagandists for the China Lobby providing "background"?

But the New York Times isn't done acting as the Chinese Communist Party's press agent just yet. Because they also offer a "Ha, ha!" story about how China now has the Chinese flu under control (and I think the New York Times is the only organization in the world who believes that ChiCom spin) and now must keep Westerners out of China, for fear of dirty round-eyes infecting the Heavenly Kingdom.

Note that when Trump ordered the curbing of travel to China the leftist media attacked him as a racist -- but now that China is putting out the propaganda line that they will soon be blocking flights from America, the New York Times deems this a wise and justified public health move.

The tables have turned! Take that, guilao!

With Italy, Spain and the United States surging in contagion, many countries in Asia that suffered through the pandemic first seem to have wrestled it into submission, particularly China -- and are now fighting to protect against a new wave of infection from outside.

The reversal of fortune would have been unimaginable a week ago. At the time, China was the outbreak’s global epicenter, with people dying by the hundreds each day.

But on Thursday, it reported no new local cases for the first time since the outbreak began. Its uncompromising response -- locking down cities, shutting factories, testing thousands -- seems to have brought China’s contagion under control.

Now the pandemic that originated in China is migrating and starting to recirculate. Across Asia, where Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea successfully grappled with the virus early, alongside China, there is a growing sense of fear and dismay. Much of the region looks west and asks: We're getting it right -- why can't you?

We need hearings on who is really writing the stories that appear in the press.

We need to put these people under oath and prosecute them for perjury if they lie.

If the FusionGPS cover story about RUSSIA COLLUSION was worth three years of government investigation, the close financial connections between major US corporations, especially the "news" media, is worth at least a full calendar year of hearings and DOJ investigations.

If you haven't read it yet -- or read it, but forgot about it -- Lee Smith's expose on how the press really works now -- with private interests paying companies like Fusion GPS to manufacture stories that advance their agenda, and their willing shills in the media slapping their names on these stories -- is a must-read.

Smith calls it "News-for-Hire."

Yet at the same time that Fusion GPS was fueling a campaign warning against a vast Russia-Trump conspiracy to destroy the integrity of American elections, the company was also working with Russia to influence American policy--by removing the same sanctions that Trump was supposedly going to remove as his quid pro quo for Putin’s help in defeating Hillary. Many observers, including the press, can't quite figure out how the firm wound up on both sides of the fence. Sen. Chuck Grassley wants to know if Fusion GPS has violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

As the founders of Fusion GPS surely understand, flexibility is a key recipe for success--and the more room you can occupy in the news cycle, the bigger the brand. After all, they’re former journalists--and good ones. Fusion GPS is the story of a few journalists who decided to stop being suckers. They’re not buyers of information, they're sellers.

***

Fusion GPS was founded in 2009--before the social media wave destroyed most of the remaining structures of 20th-century American journalism--by two Wall Street Journal reporters, Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch. They picked up former colleagues from the Journal, Tom Catan, and Neil King, Jr., who were also well-respected by their peers. When the social media wave hit two years later, print media’s last hopes for profitability vanished, and Facebook became the actual publisher of most of the news that Americans consumed. Opposition research and comms shops like Fusion GPS became the news-rooms--with investigative teams and foreign bureaus--that newspapers could no longer afford.

As top reporters themselves, the principals of Fusion GPS knew exactly what their former colleagues needed in order to package and sell stories to their editors and bosses...

And now, says the journalist, "they're guns for hire. They were hired to dig up dirt on donors to Mitt Romney’s campaign, they were hired by Planned Parenthood after a video exposing some of the organization’s controversial practices.”

Besides Russia, Fusion GPS has also worked with other foreign countries, organizing campaigns and creating news that furthers the aims of the people who pay for their services--using the fractured playing field of “news” to extend old-fashioned lobbying efforts in a way that news consumers have been slow to understand.

Fusion GPS, according to the company’s website, offers “a cross-disciplinary approach with expertise in media, politics, regulation, national security, and global markets.” What does that mean, exactly? "They were hired by a sheikh in the UAE after he was toppled in a coup and waged an information war against his brother," one well-respected reporter who has had dealings with the company told me. "I believe they seeded the New Yorker story about the Trump Hotel in Azerbaijan with alleged connections to the IRGC. They may have been hired to look into Carlos Slim. It's amazing how much copy they generate. They're really effective." (About the former example, New Yorker editor David Remnick said this was not true.)

Yet it is rare to read stories about comms shops like Fusion GPS because traditional news organizations are reluctant to bite the hands that feed them. But they are the news behind the news--well known to every D.C. beat reporter as the sources who set the table and provide the sources for their big "scoops." The ongoing transformation of foundering, profitless news organizations into dueling proxies for partisan comms operatives is bad news for American readers, and for our democracy. But it is having a particularly outsized effect on reporting in the area of foreign policy, where expert opinion is prized--and easily bought--and most reporters and readers are only shallowly informed.

75 Wow.

"Maybe this pining for the brutal communist Chinese tyranny is widespread in the media, where men of slight shoulders and ample waistlines perhaps have the same hero worship of Big Bad Chinese Government Bullies that little kids do of baseball players or superheroes."

The answer is "yes." I hate that the name of the writer escapes me, but a column published five or so years before Trump came onto the scene really pushed me off the cuck trade position and made me solidly anti-globalist. The author posed questions along the lines of "exactly how much video of factories being shuttered in the Rust Belt aired, how many interviews did you see with people working their last days as auto makers?" The answer was "none," and the author concluded China and the American corporations that whore to the PRC squelched this type coverage. It struck me as totally true.

It was.

Lots of poetry up there, ace.

And I don't think formal investigations are needed, but the administration and others ought to turn up the heat tremendously - this is now just blatant and ridiculous propaganda.

Pompeo has b-slapped the Chinese, which fits with his formal role, but somebody besides Trump should do some extensive evisceration, in public, of the "press" here. I think - just barely - the country still has enough minimally sensible and informed people that this amazing, appalling turn by the media will yield civic miles, if it's highlighted.

110 The "Fusion GPS" model of "News" is, I suspect, quite common, if not the majority of how "news" work product is produced in this Country. And, I suspect it's been this way for years. I suspect catching Fusion GPS in the act [** They never did cough up the list of "journalists" they PAID MONEY to, to promote their Russian BS] was just the tip of the iceberg.

We KNOW Krisol et. al., do this same thing. The AMAZING coordination of not only Progressive talking points, but EXACT phraseology of those talking points, should be fed into into a statistics program to determine the probability of spontaneous Progressive mind meld on all these issues.

Outfits like Media Matters have been the "free" side of this pre-packaged "news" story business for years (and is a primary culprit of the coordination angle)

Again, GOP officials -- WHERE IS YOUR SACK?

I'm 100% for journalists getting special 1st amendment protections. But we don't extend the same protections to National Enquirer. Are CNNMSNBCABDCBSNYTWaPO closer to National Enquirer or Edward Murrow?

114 Just a reminder about Joshua Trevino, and his stable of also 'conservative' writers paid to write propaganda pieces in support of the Malaysian gubmint:

Trevino's subcontractors included conservative writer Ben Domenech, who made $36,000 from the arrangement, and Rachel Ehrenfeld, the director of the American Center for Democracy, who made $30,000. Seth Mandel, an editor at Commentary, made $5,500 [...]. Brad Jackson, writing at the time for RedState, made $24,700. Overall, 10 writers were part of the arrangement.

"It was actually a fairly standard PR operation," Trevino told BuzzFeed Friday. "To be blunt with you, and I think the filing is clear about this, it was a lot looser than a typical PR operation. I wanted to respect these guys' independence and not have them be placement machines."

I was in the same class with the first crop of students to attend a particular professional school in the United States. Bush I was president. The PRC had a known spy embedded in that class. She routinely harassed the other ChiCom students, tone policed them, the whole works. The professors and administrators turned a blind eye to it.

This has been a long time coming. The PRC's total corruption of D.C. political hacks and the propaganda machine has been a long time in the making. If the average American had a clue about how much their country was betrayed by the ruling class, D.C. would be a smouldering pile of rubble.

That's why they want Trump to order a national shutdown - so they can blame him later, rather than state and local Democrats.

the leftists always think that the next economic crisis will at long last lead to the workers rising up and overthrowing the capitalist system and someone like Rachel Madcow will become The People's Propaganda Minister.

And I don't doubt that many of the Bernie Bros believe that Trump's re-election will finally make it happen.

177 An unmentioned story, even on Bannon's warroom, is that China could be facing a devastating debt crisis.

They have lots of surplus cash, but when that runs out they are fucked. They can not print money like the US, and much of the West for use in buying foreign goods.

If they run out of cash, and food, they are in a mess of trouble.

This could lasts many months - it is endemic. It will not go away any more than the flu does each year until most of their population has had it. So far 0.0001% has had it and it shut them down. If they let it rage, then CCP is gone. If they stay shut down, then no trade, no FX, no food, and the CCP is gone.

... You heard it hear first.

211 As for the "it will go away in the summer" stuff - No going to happen. It happens for flue and cold because they are lying in wait all the time for population to become more susceptible. Slowly people lose immunity (births and aging) and slowly virus mutates, and each year there is a point where it can re-surge. But that is into a population where it has already been a year ago so there is not 100% potential. Take away all immunity and the summer will not stop this (or, at least it is unlikely that the virus is that sensitive to summer temp, humidity, and social changes which makes the flue go away. it is possible, but unlikely.)

Panama Papers was the name given to the leak of millions of pages of client information from a Panamanian law firm called Mossack Fonseca. Basically, the law firm was helping the world's elite hide and shuffle money through offshore shell companies and other exotic entities.

It included power brokers from governments and businesses around the world and included some of the wealthiest people in the world. So naturally the media made it a one week story and then buried it.

250 I have a theory that the more "professionalized" a job becomes, the more it begins to suck, and the more incompetent the people doing it become.

It used to be, I think, that newsmen straddled the line between white-collar and blue-collar work. You became a reporter because you loved to write and wanted to look for stories, and because you needed to pay the bills.

Now idiots become journalists to save the world.

He should do it with a Powerpoint presentation to show it all to them, speaking clearly the names of every publication and its authors. Further, he should name those at the top that oversee these news outlets as the directors of the propaganda.

And then ask, by name, for any of those in the room that are part of any of these organizations, to get up right now and leave and never come back.

259 BTW, it was interesting to read the Twitter responses to Nate Silver's noticing that the number of new cases has almost plateaued in Washington state and in Seattle.

For me, it was the best news I read all day. But it was interesting how many Leftists furiously attacked Silver - they are very invested in the idea that this is going to infect most of the United States and kill millions of people.

After all, if millions die, Trump will probably be defeated, and with any luck, the Revolution will follow.

A few million dead is a small price to pay for that.

After all, they're socialists.

Anyway, I was summarily ignored by the radio station, and I'm not even sure that the radio station understood what I was complaining about.

And the AP stories were crap propaganda for the left, which is what dialed up my interest and complaints. And they still post AP stories every day.

He also was wary that they could get the sign at anytime to close completely.

Oh, and he said those classes were filling up like crazy, he had never seen anything like it in the years he had worked there.

"Does freedom of speech or freedom of the press apply if the person involved is a witting agent of a hostile foreign power operating on our soil for the benefit of that hostile foreign power?"

These people need to disclose their funding and operations. If they don't, they should be destroyed. If they can't be destroyed, they should be iced out. Completely. At a minimum, at least the NYT, Bloomberg and the WaPo should have all of their press passes revoked and all access to anyone in the government curtailed. Any government employee caught talking to them - on or off the record - should be immediately terminated and put under surveillance.

375 I've come around to think that we had all better stay home for a while. 72 hours ago I was the opposite, saying this is all bullshit, all we need to do is be careful, not shake hands, wash hands a lot.

Three days now seems like an eternity. I think shit's for real now.

We're in SW FL but 25 miles south of the epicenter of spring breaky-ness on the Gulf coast, Fort Meyers Beach. Today, Naples closed all its public beaches and so did Fort Meyers.

Local governments have been tepid in their reactions to all this, and as a result, most everyone goes to work as usual, and almost every single privately owned restaurant has remained open, supposedly operating under some table spacing guidelines and supposedly serving only half capacity. I've seen enough to know there is little compliance.

Our problem is we have about a million people here who are snowbirds, many of them in rental units, all of them old like 60+, and the great majority of them eat out at least once per day.

That is why such a limp action by government to close restaurants. It's not so much that they'll deprive the snowbirds of their lunches and dinners, it's that the snowbirds will pack up their SUVs and head north.

But again, shit's getting real. The steps being taken aren't happening all at once, they are coming one at a time.

First the "guidelines" about bars and "nightclubs," then the restaurant "please consider" rules, now the beach closings.

Sooner or later, sooner I hope, they will mandate restaurant closings except for scheduled takeouts or deliveries, and the snowbirds will be relegated to takeout, and eating it in front of the TV in the rental.

Let's hope they can all get out before air travel closes.

I heard the stupid PA Guv closed down all the restrooms along the PA turnpike and wherever else they had state-controlled rest stops along interstates.

What a buffoon. It did not last long once someone thought it out.

Latest Harris Poll Has Some Good News For President Trump On Coronavirus Response

Conducted using a nationally representative sample of 2,050 Americans over two waves, March 14-15 and March 17-18, the poll provided some quick feedback on how the public's perception can change overnight even as the government shifts its response to a crisis in which the news seemingly changes by the hour.

Overall, both waves showed around 60% of Americans "satisfied" with how the federal government has handled the coronavirus crisis so far.

Of the president's performance, 56% of the second wave approve of the way Trump has handled the COVID-19 crisis, with 44% disapproving. This is up five percentage points from the first wave, conducted only two days before. Meanwhile, Trump's overall approval jumped four percentage points between waves, from 49% to 53%.

The deer hunting scene was shot in the Rockies. A bunch of Yinzers get drunk at a wedding and pile into a car and when they wake up they're hunting mule deer, in the Rockies, not Ohio.

It's a great movie but hoo boy that bit's a stretch.

Last week, a WHO expert on a news interview was discussing this drug and said the actual production cost per pill was about 5 cents.

Pulling out a corporate officer of one of these drug manufacturing companies into a public square and hanging them for everyone to see works for people, just like it works for crows that want to steal the freshly planted seed in a field.

It works for crows. Plant that dead crow right on a pike in the middle of the field.

"Does freedom of speech or freedom of the press apply if the person
involved is a witting agent of a hostile foreign power operating on our
soil for the benefit of that hostile foreign power?"



These people need to disclose their funding and operations. If they
don't, they should be destroyed. If they can't be destroyed, they should
be iced out. Completely. At a minimum, at least the NYT, Bloomberg and
the WaPo should have all of their press passes revoked and all access to
anyone in the government curtailed. Any government employee caught
talking to them - on or off the record - should be immediately
terminated and put under surveillance.

469 So the Mayor of Chicago just had a news conference about what the city is doing for COVID-19. No shelter-in-place, but schools are closed through 04/20. (Insert students on drugs joke here)

But the interesting part I found is that she said that Chicago has been saving up for a shutdown like this since December. They apparently somehow have $100mil fund saved up to use for small businesses and such.

Am I the only one who keeps thinking that this was an op planned by the left a long time ago? Apparently as early as December?

When was that Event201 conference?

Call me crazy, *tinfoil hat firmly applied*, but did the left plan all this to happen, even coordinating with the media and CDC to use the models to freak people out and force this country-wide shutdown and push through the massive stimulus packages to tank the economy during an election year?

And maybe the impeachment crap was all a distraction?

No coincidence that the WHO declared this a pandemic within days of the Senate clearing President Trump? And then within a day or two of that, the CDC freaks out the President so much with the models that he declares a national emergency?

I know, I know, but none of this hysteria has made sense from the get-go. And with the media dutifully spreading Chinese propaganda.

And then the day after all the stimulus packages are successfully passed, BOOM we seemingly have found the malaria medicine which works to heal COVID-19.

Ugh... I know I know, but after the Obama Administration worked with the USA intelligence agencies to spy on the Trump campaign in 2016 and setup the Russia hoax, and with Obama staying in Washington to continue to cause trouble and with Soros...

Then I watch Shapiro, who for days has been preaching rather convincingly that the closings, shut-downs and all have a very finite date, and it's not nearly as far off as the scaremongers think. And the results as far as spreading contagion due to resumption of daily life (with many modifications regarding the elderly and susceptible, and hot-spot areas) won't be as bad as we might think.

How does that compare to Valley Fever? I had it as a child, the very
week my dad was retiring from the USAF as a squadron commander.





Valley fever is a fungal pneumonia, it can cause some serious
respiratory issues as you know. COVID causes a severe inflammatory
response in the lungs of some patients. The membranes become thick and
non-stretchy. Hard to expand to get air in, too thick for much oxygen to
cross.

I worked in Phoenix in '93 for awhile and heard the horror stories of Valley Fever -- including people having lobes of their lungs removed.

During WWII they couldn't get beyond the P-40 design when other companies were coming up with faster aircraft with greater range. The SB2C Helldiver was one of their last military aircraft and "The Beast" had a lot of problems.

Boeing gave its executives huge stock option packages.

Those same executives would use Boeing's cash to buyback shares of Boeing stock.

Stock buybacks increased the share price of Boeing stock.

Boom, juice the stock price, exercise those stock options.

- - -
Boeing used 74% of its free cash flow buying back shares of stock.

Stock buybacks raise stock price, which increases the values of the executives stock options.

Boeing executives looted the company.

The reaction is justified, if for example, we KNOW that there were 30 million deaths IN CHINA. Which I doubt (that 'we' know) because our intelligence services have been too busy framing Trump for treason to pay attention the nation's enemies.
If we knew that, we might project a similar (divide by 4 for size maybe more for not being burdened with state run medicine) result here which would make the action taken seem reasonable. I agree with you that based on what is publicly known, we're just not there.

I think one way or another they will survive. Trump has already said he wanted to make sure Boeing makes it.

Trump understands as well as anyone in DC that we can't afford to lose some of our core industries as we did with steel and drugs. It's a national security issue as he has been saying for years and as we are all now seeing with China threatening to withhold drugs from us.

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump extracts his pound of flesh, though.

627 621 I really don't think the "lockdowns" are confined to D-governor states, though I haven't checked. Some variation, but most populous states all trending the same direction. So I suppose the difference is the R governors doing same/similar things aren't drunk on dictatorial power, but are making a judgment call. Or I could be wildly way off there.

630 I've read several times that this virus, like most cold/flu viruses, is most active in the mid-40s Fahrenheit and it doesn't work as well above or below that.
Posted by: Ian S. at March 19, 2020 09:05 PM (6XLoz)


This is what I am saying is very likely misleading.

For cold and flu, a small decrease in how well the virus transmits will kill the spread simply because the spread was already a marginal thing

In a population that gets the virus every year, there is a limited number of people who can be infected each year, so after a couple months the new cases die down. This is helped by the weather, but think of it as a new shoe store on a block full of shoe stores - the market is already saturated (in my analogy, people shopping at other stores are those with immunity. I am saying the shop operates on a knife edge of profitability.) Small change in market can push the store into the red.

For virus, it gets going in winter as soon as conditions are right and there is opportunity, but it is always pretty marginal opportunity. The virus (colds and flu) all shift each year, and each year population changes so each year more and more people can be infected. But in winter it is pushed over the edge and can spread. In spring, a small change in transmission rate kills the epidemic. Not so for a new virus where the only variable is the weather.

There is math behind this, but that is the simplified text explanation.
(with lots of errors since I am hopped up on coffee and filling out tax forms.)

Every time you think he is trapped, cornered, and/or left for dead in one of nurse's diabolical devices, he reappears 20 feet away in a Superman pose. It's fairly remarkable, and in other ways actually pretty routine at this point.

The end won't happen tomorrow. But "illegal" gatherings can begin at homes of people with large properties, for picnics and performances by local musicians. Will the police (i.e., the mayors and governors) arrest people who gather in groups of more than 10 on private property? I hope we don't get to find out. Elected officials know what side their bread is buttered on.

The worst possible situation is elected officials relaxing or removing closure orders, and the people being too sacred to go out. I do not believe that will happen, though.

But this time, it is a contagion and people are naturally terrified of those. People didn't quit listening. They reacted like never before. And the panic is completely out of control.

I don't think they anticipated this outcome. I think they're thrilled with it, but even in their wildest dreams they couldn't have planned it.

776 I made that same reference yesterday, but the "polar bear" version, with a "polar bear rattle. The punchline is, "See? It worked!"

777 Odd, CA is now begging and screaming like a Navajo* for federal help, Navy hospital ships even.

Almost like CA is part of the US.

Yet when illegal aliens - carrying disease, in many many cases violent criminals, the foot soldiers of int'l criminal gangs, repeat offender rapists and child molesters, and the like - are for some reason collared in CA, the state doesn't allow coordination with ICE to detain and deport said aliens. So in many cases they go on the road, carrying their evil and mayhem to the rest of the country.

But now - now - CA is part of the US again.

Like magic.

I'd despise Newsome and his voters, if I gave them any thought at all (hat tip: Rick Blaine).

782 See, but there are people like me that saw this as a nothingburger for this country. The media captured the low info voter and they ran with it. They media and the idiots turned this into a firestorm. Trump did what a prudent president should; restrict access from a country with a know health issue. Which was way before the media caught on.
It's just so rage inducing

784 The new testing will increase infected case numbers, but death numbers were probably being counted correctly all along, unless some were assumed to be flu.

Posted by: illiniwek at March 19, 2020 09:50 PM (Cus5s)


The death rate for the elderly is normally elevated above the general population even for the healthy ones. At least, some of the elderly deaths will be Wongly attributed to Wuhan until good testing and data collection regimens are in place! Even then I'm not sure I trust the CDC's reporting.

I think the Deep State has settled at or around 18k, which would be below where it was when Trump was elected.
If it goes lower than 18k then we are staring Armageddon right in the face as pretty much every savings, retirement and pension fund goes tits the fuck up.

This op has already wiped out 30pct so wiping out 50pct or more would be a good way to start a revolution.

Perhaps that is the plan after all.

And of course Wolf would have to do zheis every bidding because arguing with a tranny is baaaaad.

791 The demorats beloved China and wal-mart are profiteering massively, many prices have gone up 50%. The whole corona scare has been carefully engineered to benefit China, Wal-Mart and the demorat party. Come Novenber, with the scare still in place, the demorats will appoint anybody they want into any office, anywhere. How sad OutCome education has made this so easy to engineer/implement.

792 my ex brother-in-law used to work for a PR firm that did public relations for Saudi Arabia about 30 years ago. And I still remember that he and his team got together over one weekend to cobble together an article to plant in Newsweek which Newsweek agreed to, allegedly written by a Saudi American businessman. This businessman agreed to have his signature on the piece and to be the alleged author. The entire thing was fake and all the parties involved knew it ... except for the readers of the magazine.

my brother-in-law told me this was standard practice, and that was back in the 80s.
