Another book review of Hugh Wilford's The Mighty Wurlitzer: How the CIA Played America put Ramparts back in the paper today--this time the New York Sun. The book's title plays on the CIA's name for its own propaganda machine. Wurlitzers, the old theater organs that accompanied silent movies, let audiences know how they should feel at any given moment.
Unlike the Wall Street Journal review, this one (by the Hudson Institute's Ronald Radosh) doesn't suggest that Ramparts' investigative work on CIA activities aided communism.
Note to self: Look at The Mighty Wurlitzer.
