Anderson Cooper, CIA Operative?

Not only is CNN “journalist” Anderson Cooper the great-great grandson of robber baron Cornelius “Commodore” Vanderbilt and the son of trust fund baby and designer jean hucksteress Gloria Vanderbilt, he is also a CIA operative, according to Radar Online.

“Following his sophomore and junior years at Yale—a well-known recruiting ground for the CIA—Cooper spent his summers interning at the agency’s monolithic headquarters in Langley, Virginia, in a program for students interested in intelligence work. His involvement with the agency ended there, and he chose not to pursue a job with the agency after graduation, according to a CNN spokeswoman, who confirmed details of Cooper’s CIA involvement to Radar.”

Or did he? As revealed during the Church Committee investigation in 1975, the CIA had a long-standing relationship with the corporate media, dubbed “Operation Mockingbird” by Deborah Davis, former Village Voice writer and author of Katherine The Great (New York: Sheridan Square Press, 1991). In her book, Davis quotes Philip Graham, the late editor Washington Post, as saying: “You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month.” Of course, Cooper, a bona fide Ritchie Rich, doesn’t need a couple hundred dollars a month, but may be doing the CIA’s work for other reasons, or he may be “owned” by the spook agency, as Frank Wisner and Allen Dulles owned “respected members of the New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles, plus stringers,” according to a CIA source cited by Davis (see Alex Constantine, Tales from the Crypt: The Depraved Spies and Moguls of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird).

“Media assets … eventually include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International (UPI), Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service, etc. and 400 journalists, who have secretly carried out assignments according to documents on file at CIA headquarters, from intelligence-gathering to serving as go-betweens,” writes Mary Louise for Prison Planet. “The CIA had infiltrated the nation’s businesses, media, and universities with tens of thousands of on-call operatives by the 1950’s. CIA Director Dulles had staffed the CIA almost exclusively with Ivy League graduates, especially from Yale with figures like George Herbert Walker Bush from the ‘Skull and Crossbones’ Society.”

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that the media is not only influenced by the CIA… the media is the CIA. Many Americans think of their supposedly free press as a watchdog on government, mainly because the press itself shamelessly promotes that myth. One of the first tenets for the control of a population is to control all sources of information the population receives and mostly because of the pervasive CIA and Operation Mockingbird, the mainstream American Press is a controlled multi-national corporate/government megaphone. They are up to their eyeballs in dirty deeds and there will never be an end to the corruption that prevails unless the CIA is abolished. Otherwise, the CIA will just keep on using their tricks of propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, drug trafficking, sexual intrigue, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, demolition and evacuation procedures, death squads, and politically motivated assassinations.

According to Steve Kangas, the late journalist who mysteriously committed suicide (shot twice in the head, à la Gary Webb) in the offices of CIA asset Richard Mellon Scaife, the “CIA has always recruited the nation’s elite: millionaire businessmen, Wall Street brokers, members of the national news media, and Ivy League scholars…. Historically, the CIA and society’s elite have been one and the same people. This means that their interests and goals are one and the same as well.”

No doubt Anderson Cooper’s “interests and goals are one and the same” as the CIA and the ruling elite. However, this does not mean he is actually a snoop agency mole inserted in CNN. Nonetheless, his supposed flirtation with the agency, and his Ivy League background, specifically at Yale, are suspicious, to say the least.
