Spooks Turned Spox: US Media Now Filled With Former Intelligence Agents

After years in the shadows overseeing espionage, kill programs, warrantless wiretapping, entrapment, psyops and other covert operations, national security establishment retirees are are turning to a new line of work where they can carry out their imperial duties.

That is, propagandizing the public on cable news. Reborn as cable news pundits, these people are cashing in. So many years working in the dark, only to emerge in the studio lights of the same networks that rail all day everyday against state TV from countries that America hates.

I’m talking about people like…

Below is but a partial list of prominent former spooks turned mainstream media pundits and analysts, to say nothing of the even greater numbers of retired generals the network continuously rely on.

Former CIA Director John Brennan who is now an NBC News senior national security and intelligence analyst.

Fran Townsend, former homeland security advisor to George W. Bush. She’s now a CBS News senior national security analyst.

But CNN takes the cake — it’s the biggest spook show of all.

Jim Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, now a CNN national security analyst.

Retired General Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and the NSA, now a CNN national security analyst.

Asha Rangappa, former FBI special agent, now CNN legal analyst.

James Gagliano, a retired FBI supervisory special agent, now a CNN law enforcement analyst.

Tony Bliken, former deputy secretary of state and former deputy national security advisor, and now CNN global affairs analyst.

  1. OMG! CNN and MSM employees are entirely the same bunch of criminals who were in on the coup of Trump!!! No wonder we can’t get a truthful news report from either one. Lol. They are all crooks and this is the only way they can pass off their lies.

    1. As “intelligence”agents you questioned their product and now we know
      why they were not in the Intelligence gathering business but disinformation
      business. They lied to the American People and those in power for their
      own political and professional gain at our expense. Having some experience
      in that vienue I saw how gathered information was twisted and polluted
      before it was disseminated to the public or leaked to suit politicians for their
      own personal gain in the United States.

    2. Proves what criminal element we have in our goverment. It’s time to get out the RAID. AND FINSH THE DRAING. SOROS PICKS UP THE PAYCHECKS AT MSNBC,NPR. SOMEONE SAID CNN ALSO OR THEY WOULDNT BE AROUND.

    3. The NEW WORLD ORDER (communist crowd) have overtaken the democrat party and what was once America’s Media. Be aware that communist propaganda is what is foisting open borders and illegal alien voting ON OUR NATION.

  2. The Democraps are really pulling s**t off the very bottom of the barrel. They are having ex-employees, who were either retired or fired, to make up crap about anything to try and bring our President down. What should happen next is charge all the BS artists, put them in prison, and take away their Government retirement.

  3. Wow…So this is how a soft Coup is orchestrated upon a sitting US President…What better way for the MSM to brainwash the American people that Trump is bad for this country…he’s not a globalist…he doesn’t play by their rules…he doesn’t need their corrupt money…he doesn’t need to be engulfed in their New World Order agenda…he wants to keep America great…and he definitely does not need their “political correctness” BS…Go Trump 2020…”If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the (deep) State”…”Think of the Press as a great keyboard on which the government (deep state) can play”…Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister, Nazified Germany 1933-1945…And so it is with the corrupt Intelligence figure heads as hired by the MSM…They want absolute control of our mind and thoughts…it is all being played out before us…”The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it”…George Orwell

  4. The Media and all the Socialist intel are products of the Socialist move by the Clintons, Obama and Soros and a long list of others. The only way to stop the disease is kill it. Stand together, this has gone on for over 3 years and it’s time to end it.

  5. SECOND BULL SCHIFFFER COMES FORWARD. OPERATION TWO SHOES. CODE NAME MICKEY MOUSE II. WORKED WITH CIA IMPOSTER BRENNAN IN THE HINDU KUSH DELIVERING PIZZA TO THE TALIBAN. ACCORDING TO BATTLE HARDENED COMRADE SCHIFF WHO SERVED IN NAM WITH BOMBS AWAY BLUMENTHAL THE BRAVEST SENATOR IN CONNECTICUT WHO SINGLE HANDEDLY AMBUSHED CHILDREN AT TOYS FOR TOTS. HE WAS AWARDED THE ORDER OF BENGHAZI BY OMAMA BIN OBAMA. IN OTHER NEWS TODAY INDIAN CHIEF WARREN CLAIMED SHE WAS DENIED ENTRANCE INTO COMMUNIST HARVARD BECAUSE SHE WAS PREGNANT AND THAT IS WHY SHE IS PRO CHOICE. HER PAPOOSE SAYS THAT IS ALL BULL SCHIFF. WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO MY AMERICAN FRIENDS IS THE FACT BOTH PARTY’S DID NOT WANT TRUMP AND HE BECAME GOD’S INTERVENTION TO SAVE THE PEOPLE GOD LOVES. THERE ARE NOW ONLY TWO PARTY’S LEFT IN THE USA. THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT RINO RAT PARTY UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE COMMUNIST MEDIA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THE GREAT DEFENDER MAGA MAGA TRUMP. GOD BLESS THE USA AND CHICK FILA. SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY RADIO SHOW ON YOU TUBE ABUTOM.

  6. Shiff is now conducting auditions for whistle blowers preferably retired corrupt cia employees. Fired or retired
    Dishonorably preferred. Due to the fact that the best liars will be working first. Drizzling shiffs stated that he is running whistleblowers in one after another because his coup is out of options and if unsuccessful obama and his thieving crew are all going to strung up for treason .

  7. Fantastic comments, I especially like the George Orwell comment. I plan to use it on all who have been brainwashed. Not that it will do much good.
