Superb takedown by Off-Guardian of the media chorus decrying the notion that there is a US Deep State.
As I have pointed out here on several occasions, the corporate

western security agencies to get their placemen into influential media
of my generation ended up in journalism because of Woodward and
Bernstein's role in bringing down Nixon. The opening of this article,
with details of how Woodward ended up at the Washington Post, is a real
eye-opener in itself.
