Ever.

Are you disputing that CIA had infiltrated Major Media in programs like MOCKINGBIRD and in less formal ways?

How peculiar.
Then you missed this part of MOCKINGBIRD:


Quote:
In 2007 a CIA report was declassified that is titled the Family Jewels.[12] Compiled by the CIA in 1973, it refers to a Project Mockingbird and describes a wiretap of journalists. The report was compiled at the request of then CIA director James R. Schlesinger.

According to the report:

Project Mockingbird, a telephone intercept activity, was conducted between 12 March 1963 and 15 June 1963, and targeted two Washington based newsmen who, at the time, had been publishing news articles based on, and frequently quoting, classified materials of this Agency and others, including Top Secret and Special Intelligence.[13]

The wiretap was authorized by CIA director John A. McCone, "in coordination with the Attorney General (Mr. Robert Kennedy), the Secretary of Defense (Mr. Robert McNamara), and the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (Gen. Joseph Carroll)." [13]

An internal CIA biography of McCone by CIA Chief Historian David Robarge, made public under an FOIA request, identified the two reporters as Robert Allen and Paul Scott.[14] Their syndicated column, "The Allen-Scott Report," appeared in as many as three hundred papers at the height of its popularity.[15]
For the grownups in the room, MOCKINGBIRD was detailed in the declassified report known as "The Family Jewels" from the CIA, and you can download the PDF here, but be warned - it's a huge document:

Lisa Pease said on twitter she has evidence that Walter Tew himself dug a bullet out of a wall in the Ambassador Hotel and initialed it. Dan Moldea had previously made the argument that Walter Tew was just an unqualified cop who could have circled random holes in the wall. More to come soon on November 11 when her new RFK book comes out.

Looking forward to actual evidence from any CTist. I thought you'd left since no CTist has ever been able to overcome the null hypothesis.

Lots of people say stuff on Twitter. Not all of it is true. You do understand that, right?

After 50 years, what possible *evidence* could Lisa Pease have discovered?

A statement from Tew from this past June saying he recalls such a bullet? Where's the bullet? His recollection does not move the needle whatsoever. You need hard evidence at this late date. Memories don't cut it. You do understand that, right?
