Literary Magazines for Socialists Funded by the CIA, Ranked

Braden confirmed what journalists had begun to uncover over the previous year or so: The CIA had been responsible for secretly financing a large number of "civil society" groups, such as the National Student Association and many socialist European unions, in order to counter the efforts of parallel pro-Soviet organizations. "[I]n much of Europe in the 1950's," wrote Braden, "socialists, people who called themselves 'left' — the very people whom many Americans thought no better than Communists — were about the only people who gave a damn about fighting Communism."

The centerpiece of the CIA's effort to organize the efforts of anti-Communist artists and intellectuals was the Congress for Cultural Freedom. Established in 1950 and headquartered in Paris, the CCF brought together prominent thinkers under the rubric of anti-totalitarianism.
