Today's Inquirer reviews ...

... Chronicling a journalistic giant.

... Throwing a bit more mess on the pile.

... Pedaling his musings about life, music, art, community.

  1. I find it curious that the reviewer did not mention the recent book that identified I. F. Stone as a Soviet agent (and stooge).

    The book, "Spies: The Rise and Fall of the KGB in America" by noted espionage historians John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, along with Alexander Vassiliev, offered proof that Stone reported to Soviet agents.

    So much Stone for hating government. He just hated the American government. The evil, murderous Soviet government was OK by this left-wing idol.

    Vassiliev, a Russian journalist and former KGB officer, was offered a chance to read official KGB records and files after the fall of the Soviet Union.

    He came away with the knowledge, as well as the records, that prove the Soviets infiltrated American institutions via spies and agents of influence.

    They Soviets infiltrated the labor movement, the Civil Rights movement, academia, government, the film industry and journalism. The Right was right about Soviet actions and intentions.

    The documentation in "Spies" clearly lists the many meetings between Stone and Soviet agents and the Soviet officers applaud Stone's efforts to help Mother Russia in these reports.

    The American left have a hard time excepting that left-wing heroes like Stone and Alger Hiss were anti-American, foreign agents.
