Another Truth Teller
Someone pointed me to this audio. It is well worth a listen. The Wikipedia entry commences thus; Myron Coureval Fagan (October 31, 1887 – May 12, 1972) was an American writer, producer and director for film and theater and a red scare figure in the late 1940s and 1950s. Fagan was an ardent anti-communist and influential conspiracy theorist.
Wikipedia depicts him as a “conspiracy theorist” but we know that Wikipedia is controlled by intelligence services as anyone is free to edit the material and numerous articles have shown their bias on certain political or historical matters. What I find convincing is how Myron turned against Hollywood after one of his actors had a nervous breakdown. He spent the rest of his life fighting against them. That sound like a man who was motivated to expose them.In the mid 1940’s Fagan launched a one-man crusade against what he claimed was a “Red Conspiracy in Hollywood.” Out of this crusade would come the Cinema Educational Guild. The culmination of this crusade would be the 1947 Congressional hearings where more than 300 famous stars, writers, and directors from Hollywood, Radio, and TV were investigated. A more balanced history can be found here and it includes a transcript of the audio.
Moreover, he is Jewish (a fact that Wikipedia omits). So no one can accuse him of antisemitism. He died in 1972 but listen to his interview (1967). It is chilling, especially as so much of his “conspiracy” is coming true right now.
