    I.F.Stone has been confirmed as a Soviet spy by one of the Russian Spy agencies former officers.
    Formerly only unconfirmed rumor and defended by many leftists, it is now pure unabridged fact.

    Does that mean McCarthyism and racial descrimination were good things?

    So you think that spying is something to be overlooked if you write something against racism?
    You need to get a clue. The guy wrote what he wrote as a cover for his use of you liberal weenies for his spying operation. It was a way to recruit you. Usefull democrats all.

    Interesting, I read IF Stone in the New York Review of Books many years ago. He didn't seem like the dreamy disillusioned type? I also subscribed to Commentary years ago but it is a neocon magazine today. I am always skeptical of Soviet or any so called intelligence, it falls into that hazy world of assumption.

    Hmmm...assuming that all the above is true, by today's standards that would have made Stone not a spy, but a LOBBYIST on behalf of the Soviets.

    I'm inclined to believe that was probably was true of him from time to time.

    A LOT of the pre WWII left fell for the myth that the Soviets were something they were not.

    Just as a LOT of the American industrialists fell for the myth that Hitler was something he was not.

    There is no better way to propagandize than to lie to the press, folks.
