six degrees of CNN (american edition)

The New Yorker and CNN have consistently manufactured
the pro-RPF/A propaganda, reported by Christiane
Amanpour and Philip Gourevitch.

Amanpour is married to James Rubin, Bill Clinton’s Assistant
Secretaryof State and Madeleine Albright’s right-hand man,
and now economic adviser to President-elect Barack Obama.
Gourevitch—who produced the celebrated pro-RPF/A text
“We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed
With Our Families,” is a close friend of Paul Kagame and a
conduit for State Department disinformation passed by
James Rubin, who was also Chief Spokesman for the
Clinton State Department (1997-2000), and whose sister,
Elizabeth Rubin, was dating Gourevitch.

The CIA didn’t just offer guidance to film-makers, however. It even offered money. In 1950, the agency bought the rights to George Orwell’s Animal Farm, and then funded the 1954 British animated version of the film. Its involvement had long been rumoured, but only in the past decade have those rumours been substantiated, and the tale of the CIA’s role told in Daniel Leab’s book Orwell Subverted.
