From 1973 to 1984, CounterSpy published detailed, damning information about US covert activities. The CIA loathed it and, it’s said, succeeded in undermining it.

CounterSpy was an American magazine that published articles on covert operations, especially those undertaken by the American government.[1] It was the official Bulletin of the Committee for Action/Research on the Intelligence Community (CARIC). CounterSpy published 32 issues between 1973 and 1984 from its headquarters in Washington DC.[2][3]

Via AltGov 2:

"From 1973 to 1984, CounterSpy published detailed, damning information about US covert activities (and, to a lesser extent, those of other countries, including Israel, Australia, and South Africa). It was most infamous for naming CIA station chiefs. The CIA loathed it and, it’s said, succeeded in undermining it. (In 1978 some of the people involved with CounterSpy created a similar magazine, CovertAction Information Bulletin, which then became CovertAction Quarterly and was published until 2005. It made a comeback as CovertAction Magazine in 2018.) CIA has long collected copies of publications exposing its operations, and the CREST archive contains scanned photocopies of most issues of CounterSpy."[4]
