Even during the Cold War, it was not rare to see such programs backfire. In my country (Uruguay) during the sixties, it was widely known that some mainstream newspapers published editorial comments straight out of the CIA local station. Imagine the credibility of said newspapers.


I would also point out that you didn't see the type of anti-Americanism in Eastern Europe that we do in the Middle East, though I suppose you had something comparable in parts of Latin America.

In any case, I don't see why some of these things need to be covertly funded at all. Why not have this new ME foundation, which is taking money from ME countries themselves as well as the EU, sponsor magazines and the like?
