"The Rise and Fall of the Bulgarian Connection is a serious and realistic assessment of the handling by the western press of a propaganda trick; it shows how the press was led by a handful of journalists linked to the CIA into accepting as proof a fabricated story. This book is a chilling indictment of our so-called "free" press, a press which abuses its freedom by omissions by half-truths, and by stirring the continuation of a Cold War climate. It deserves to be read and remembered.
-Sean MacBride, diplomat and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
"This stunning dissection of the Bulgarian Connection achieves far more than the demolition of a major hoax. It lays bare the mechanics of western-style disinformation systems and their significance for control of the public mind and global management, providing penetrating insight into the U.S. role in Italy and Turkey in the past years and the revival of Cold War tensions as part of general U.S. global planning."
-Noarn Chomsky, author and professor of linguistics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"The supposed KGB-Bulgarian plot to kill the Pope was one of the most sinister yet ludicrous chapters in the history of western propaganda. Edward Herman and Frank Brodhead have done a remarkable job in showing how this propaganda game was played out, with the active participation of important sections of the U.S. press."
-Alexander Cockbum, media critic and columnist for The NationAbout the Author:
