Doug Valentine on the Deep State and Fake News


Doug Valentine is one of the country’s best sources on intelligence issues and the media. He recently gave an interview to Guns & Butter about the medi and the deep state, which he agreed to let us share here.

Bonnie Faulkner produces and hosts the weekly, one-hour public affairs program on KPFA and WBAI radio stations which are part of the Pacifica Network. Here’s a  lightly edited description of the topics discussed in Doug’s interview:

“The deceptive nature of the concept of a “deep state”; 70 years of fake news; Central Intelligence operates illegally and unaccountably; did CIA initiate an intelligence coup against an elected president?; does the President of the United States run the CIA, or does the CIA run the President?; the Phoenix Program as a bureaucratic and structural model for Central Intelligence and Homeland Security; organizational similarities between the media and the CIA; what is the nature of the state?”
