Dear CJ,

I hope you found the recent X-Files posting interesting.  The author turns
out to be a journalist with considerable credibility and a proven
track-record with exposes.  I'm hoping to have more of the X-File story for
you soon.

Could you send me a copy of Part I?  Is this area a specialty of yours?

Dear Richard,

Well, yes, this is a specialty of mine.  When I was a reporter with The
Associated Press in the 1980s, I wrote the first story about Oliver
North's operations at the White House.

I covered Iran-contra for AP and Newsweek, and did two documentaries
for PBS Frontline on the October Surprise controversy.  My second book,
Trick or Treason, describes the trials and tribulations of that
difficult reporting for PBS.

Part One of the X-Files dealt with a remarkable report to the U.S.
Congress from the Russia's Supreme Soviet about the October Surprise
issue.  But because the Russian information conflicted with the
congressional desire to debunk the allegations, the Russian report
ended up in the Ladies Room files, too.

The third issue of The Consortium will be on the Web shortly and will
contain secret FBI wiretaps of one of William Casey's Iranian

If you'd wish to subscribe to The Consortium, we are sending out the
first 15 issues (including back issues) for $39.  You can get them by
mail or fax.  Checks should be written to The Media Consortium and sent
to The Media Consortium, Suite 102-231, 2200 Wilson Blvd., Arlington,
VA 22201.
