Peter and Mickey spend the hour with journalist and media scholar Brian Covert,
discussing the too-close relationship between the CIA and U.S. media, as well as other issues,
including the Obama Administration “pivot” toward Asia.
Brian Covert is an independent journalist, and a lecturer at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan.
His chapter on the CIA and the media, “Played by the Mighty Wurlitzer,” appears in the Censored 2017 yearbook.
