ALTERNATIVE MEDIA CENSORSHIP: SPONSORED BY CIA's FORD FOUNDATION?

I just received the following report in my e-mail. Anyone want to look at it and comment on its value in understanding why so many "leftist" news and opinion sites say so little that is meaningful? Hat Tip to Stu Piddy.

The mass-circulation weekly TEMPO accused Ford of having once played, at the urging of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a covert role in Indonesian political affairs by consciously supporting the work of individuals who were deemed to be sympathetic to the anti-communist aims of American foreign policy.
— Chronicle of Philanthropy, 12/13/01

The Ford Foundation's history of collaboration and interlock with the CIA in pursuit of U.S. world hegemony is now a well-documented fact...The Ford Foundation has in some ways refined their style of collaboration with Washington's attempt to produce world cultural domination, but retained the substance of that policy...The ties between the top officials of the Ford Foundation and the U.S. government are explicit and continuing.
—James Petras in "The Ford Foundation and the CIA: A documented case of philanthropic collaboration with the Secret Police" on 12/15/2001

The multi-billion dollar Ford Foundation's historic relationship to the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] is rarely mentioned on Pacifica's DEMOCRACY NOW / Deep Dish TV show, on FAIR's COUNTERSPIN show, on the WORKING ASSETS RADIO show, on The Nation Institute's RADIO NATION show, on David Barsamian's ALTERNATIVE RADIO show or in the pages of PROGRESSIVE, MOTHER JONES and Z magazine. One reason may be because the Ford Foundation and other Establishment foundations subsidize the Establishment Left's alternative media gatekeepers / censors.

FYI Francis, Obama's mother also worked for the Ford Foundation.

Interesting angle to work out...

That's a great point, "Anonymous". I hadn't made the connection. But, I do remember reading a book about how foundations used well-meaning people to conduct research and develop contacts within countries overseas. Then that information and those contacts would be used by the CIA, etc. against the leftists who unknowingly helped to gather all of that intelligence.

That's why I have told some people 'no' when they told me they wanted to take polls and studies and census information of the afrosphere and publish the information.

Let the CIA do its own work.
