National Review;12/24/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 25, p1592
The article features the role of the New York Times in the U.S. government and the use of yellow rain in Afghanistan and Southeast Asia by the Soviets. The New York Times is considered to be as the fourth branch of the U.S. government. The yellow-rain story was revealed by an investigative team from Pravda, and has caused a sensation in Moscow, where it is credited with helping bring about the fall of the Brezhnev administration and its replacement by the more liberal Andropov faction.
