Media and the CIA
The CIA was set up after the Second World War to carry out espionage operations. It also branched out in other directions. Major drug running sounds improbable but is very adequately documented by Alfred McCoy in the Politics of Heroin.
They also ran Operation Mockingbird which was intended to control American media and keep it from left wing sympathies. It was a major operation and ran for years. The source on this is Spartacus School Net which is itself a left wing source. This does not mean that it does not tell the truth but telling all of the truth is a standard propaganda technique.
