Has the prophecy at the end of “3 Days of the Condor” come true?

I watched a replay of the “3 Days of the Condor” movie starring Robert Redford and Cliff Robertson Thursday night. That 1975 movie is so old that it is from the era when the mainstream media was pretty much above sheer partisan bias and would report government abuse and overreach in a heartbeat, no matter the origins of such treachery. The elemental plot of the movie is that Robert Redford’s character, Joe Turner (code name Condor) is a low-level CIA worker doing no more than fiction book research to cross-check it against actual CIA activity. After all of his co-workers are assassinated, he ultimately uncovers essentially a ‘rogue CIA’ within the CIA that operates above all authority. Good U.S. patriot that he is, he leaks all of these details at the end of the movie to the New York Times — because, as we all knew in 1975, the investigative mainstream media’s job was to report when top level authorities were not operating in the best interests of the public. And nobody in America lived in fear of their own government.

Think about that these days, and what the traditional, legacy mainstream media does not tell the public:

Combine that with what is happening to people who question authority. Has the unimaginable fictional scenario in 1975 come completely true today, on multiple fronts?

CIA Deputy Director Higgins: [looking up at the New York Times building] What? What did you do?
Condor: I told them a story. You play games, I told them a story.
Higgins: Oh, you– You poor, dumb son of a b—-. You’ve done more damage than you know.
Condor: I hope so.
Higgins: You’re about to be a very lonely man. It didn’t have to end this way.
Condor: Of course it did.
Higgins: Hey, Turner. How do you know they’ll print it? You can take a walk, but how far if they don’t print it?
Condor: They’ll print it.
Higgins: How do you know?
