The Deep State Vertical is the thinking man and woman’s portal to the world of secret government. A group blog anchors the page with daily commentary on the machinations of secret intelligence agencies in war and politics.
Hosted by blogger/author/editor Jefferson Morley, the page lays bare the workings of the CIA and other secret agencies with informed aggregation and revelatory reporting. We seek the comprehensiveness of RealClearPolitics, the acuity of Empty Wheel, and the authority of Just Security.
The site serves readers as a reliable BS detector: debunking both populist conspiracy theories and state-sponsored propaganda. By documenting the malign influence of secret intelligence agencies on our politics and world, the site empowers citizens to become activists on war and peace.
The Deep State Vertical is a program of the Independent Media Institute (IMI), a nonprofit organization that empowers people with independent journalism, information, and media tools.
IMI is dedicated to strengthening and supporting independent journalism, and to improving the public’s access to independent information sources. We believe democracy is enhanced and public debate broadened when more voices are heard and more points of view are made available.
IMI’s funding for comes from private foundations, site advertising, and individual donors.
