Ed Opperman invited me back onto his show to discuss the Pentagon’s involvement in Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry. We talked about my FOIA successes of recent months and what they reveal about the scale of the DOD’s involvement in the industry. The aggressive nature of the Pentagon’s influence and their desire for more influence are a central part of this discussion. We also touched on NASA, the CIA, DHS and other government agencies involved in assisting entertainment products. This is a broad conversation that goes in a lot of different directions that you won’t want to miss.
I think Opperman’s a hack, Tom, and a bad broadcaster who often lends heavy credence to the trash you righteously rail against. Disappointed to hear a usually sober voice like yourself on his transmission.
