    In 1977, Carl Bernstein reported that the CIA recruited journalists (also foreign) to gather information. They were also fed information (including false) by the CIA, to be published or passed through to for example politicians.

    Even before the CIA was established, many journalists who covered World War II were close to people in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the wartime predecessor of the CIA.

    Several executives cooperated with the CIA: Williarn Paley of CBS, Henry Luce of Tirne Inc., Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York Times, Barry Bingham Sr. of the LouisviIle Courier‑Journal, and James Copley of the Copley News Service.
