First Comes the tie: C. D. Jackson and Political Warfare by Blanche Wiesen Cook

In the beginning of his presidency, Dwight D. Eisenhower took several steps to raise the stakes in the propaganda struggle with the Soviet Union in Europe. He created, for example, a special committee to revamp U.S. propaganda operations and introduced a plan to establish a "Volunteer Freedom Corps" composed of Eastern European anti-Communist military units. Furthermore, he appointed C. D. Jackson, a vice president of Time-Life, as his special assistant for psychological warfare. Jackson had been involved in Eisenhower's presidential campaign as a speech writer, constantly pushing for a more dynamic U.S. foreign policy aimed at the "liberation" of Eastern Europe, including East Germany. At the same time, however, Eisenhower sought to balance a more aggressive posture vis-a-vis the Soviet Union with defensive actions that corresponded to the containment doctrine of the Truman administration. Thus he was quick to reinforce his support for the European Defense Community (EDC), the framework for the political and military integration of West Germany into the Western Alliance.  Containing the Offensive: The "Chief of the Cold War" and the Eisenhower Administration's German Policy.

 "The Bilderberg Group, an informal secretive transatlantic council of key decision makers, developed between 1952 and 1954... It brought leading European and American personalities together once a year for informal discussions of their differences... The formation of the American wing of Bilderberg was entrusted to (Gen.) Eisenhower's psychological warfare co-ordinator, C.D. Jackson, and the funding for the first meeting, held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Holland in 1954, was provided by the Central Intelligence Agency. Thereafter much of its funding came from the Ford Foundation... The subjects over which the annual meetings ranged were wide... but it is clear that the [1957] Treaty of Rome ( ( ( was nurtured by discussions at Bilderberg the previous year."

"Our aim in "cold war is not conquest of territory or subjugation by force. Our aim is more subtle, more pervasive, more complete. We are trying to get the world by peaceful means to believe the truth . That truth is that American want a world at peace, a world in which peoples shall have opportunity for maximum individual development.
The means we shall employ to spread this truth are often called 'psychological.' Don't be afraid of that term just because it's a five-dollar, five-syllable word. 'Psychological warfare' is the struggle for the minds and wills of men.
    Many people think "psychological warfare" means just propaganda . . . But propaganda is not the most important part in this struggle.
    The present Administration has never yet been able to grasp the full import of a psychological effort put forth on a national scale.
    What would such a peace time or "cold war" national strategy mean? It would mean, in the first place, the selection of broad, national purposes and the designation within those purposes and the designation within those purposes of principles targets.
 Then it would mean this: Every significant act of Government should be so timed and so directed at a principle target, and so related to other government actions, that it will produce the maximum effect.  It means that our government in this critical matter will no longer be divided into air-tight compartments.
    It means that, in carrying out a national policy, every department and every agency of government that can make a useful contribution will bring its full strength to bear under as co-ordinated program. 
We shall no longer have a Department of State that deals with foreign policy in an aloof cloister, a defense establishment that makes military appraisals in a vacuum; a Mutual Security Administration that, with sovereign independence, spends billions overseas. We must bring the dozens of agencies and bureaus into concerted action under an overall scheme of strategy ..."---Eisenhower, 8 Oct 1952 (Written by CD Jackson)

Other Time-Life-Fortune editors and members of the magazine empire's upper management shared Luce's politics. Like him, several were also actively involved with the Radios. The most notable was a man with deep associations to the Radios: C.D. Jackson. Luce initially hired Jackson as assistant to the president of Time. Jackson was eventually promoted to vice president of the magazine and later became president of Fortune. He worked for Time, Inc. for thirty-three years, heavily cross-dressing between media and politics the entire time. He took so many leaves of absence from Time for government service that a "Fun and Games Committee of the C.D. Jackson Hello & Goodbye Society" was established to arrange coming and going parties for him.
    Jackson has been described as a "virtually unknown and uncelebrated publicist" of twentieth-century style political warfare. His contributions to America's burgeoning propaganda war against communism were extensive. Blanche Wiesen Cook calls him "the chief architect of America's psychological warfare effort during and after World War II. Like Luce, he never hesitated to use the pages of Time-Life-Fortune to arouse public opinion, but in his position he had other options available to him.
    As one of five men appointed by the president to reorganize America's propaganda program, Jackson wielded considerable control over propaganda directed at people on both sides of the Iron Curtain. He was fully aware of the CIA's ties to the Radios and recommended that its cover not be destroyed. If not publicly exposed, the Radios could take "positions for which the United States would not desire to accept responsibility."28 The benefits of secrecy were not lost on Jackson: "We can play tricks, we can denounce, we can take chances, we can act fast, all things that an official government propaganda agency cannot do."29 Like publishers and media executives, reporters also became associated with the stations. Some sat on the Radios' boards; others joined their staffs. In many cases, they knew about the CIA's connections to the stations and kept silent. The best indication of this comes from the diaries of William Chamberlin Working for the Christian Science Monitor, Chamberlin had been one of the first American correspondents to cover the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik revolution. He remained abroad for seventeen years, but then returned to the United States and began writing editorials for the Wall Street Journal. In the 1950s, he accepted a position as an RL board member.
