The CIA Launched a Podcast and Everyone Booed at the Same Time

The 75th anniversary of the creation of the Central Intelligence Agency (a.k.a. the CIA) has come with some interesting moves by the organization. It launched a museum (not fully open to the public) and an “official” podcast targeted toward Americans. If you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, isn’t U.S. propaganda the FBI’s job?” Well, the FBI launched its first of five podcasts back in 2010. The CIA has a lot more work to do what, with over 190 countries in the world to weigh in on overthrowing democratically elected governments (often linked to contemporary news of civil unrest).

In addition to the general announcement, the agency released a trailer on YouTube, and I’m sorry to say the comments are turned off.
