An Advantage of Working for 'The New York Times'


Seymour Hersh writes in Reporter: A Memoir:
I had a coffee a few days earlier with someone known to the Times to be well-informed member of the CIA station in Paris who was undercover as a consular officer. (Such info was one of the perks of being a Times man.)

  1. One of the big laughs in filmdom is at the end of "Three Days of the Condor", when Redford tells the CIA bad guy that he can't kill Redford. All the secrets are in the hands of ...TADA!!! The New York Times!!! LMFAO!!!

    1. Though its generation would never admit it, a good portion of their well-educated collective perceptual construct is built around implications of that scene and other movies like All The President's Men.
