The Economist Magazine: Irving Kristol Was a CIA Frontman

From the September 24, 2009 Obituary of Irving Kristol (R.I.P.) in The Economist: “Regrets were very few in Irving Kristol’s…life. He had none at all for his youthful flirtation with Trotskyism…No regrets, either, for the fact that when he edited Encounter magazine…in the 1950s it was subsidized by the CIA…” (emphasis added).

I wonder if there were any other “neoconservative” magazines founded in the 1950s by former CIA employees that were also government-subsidized CIA fronts?
