EXCLUSIVE: JOURNALIST FOR NEW NBC NEWS SHOW THE WANTED - FORMER FIRED CIA LAWYER
By TER Staff
The Enterprise Report has learned that Adam Ciralsky, (center in photo) the co-executive producer and lone "journalist" involved in the new NBC News show dubbed "The Wanted", was a former CIA lawyer fired by the agency nearly ten years ago.
Ciralsky's past was not included in NBC's press push for the new program, which is slated to premiere next week, according to widespread media reports about the program yesterday.
The CIA revoked lawyer Ciralsky's security clearance and ultimately fired him for what the agency claimed were failed polygraphs and a lack of disclosure regarding alleged ties to Israel and potential domestic spying here in the U.S. Ciralsky, who later filed a lawsuit against the agency (but did not prevail) claimed he was unfairly targeted for being Jewish by the spy agency. His case was featured prominently on NPR and the CBS News program 60-Minutes.
After the media exposure, in a strange twist, Ciralsky was hired by CBS News as a producer working at 60-Minutes. He later moved to NBC where he worked on various NBC News programs, including NBC's Dateline NBC, whose produced the controversial TV program "To Catch A Predator", which sought to track down and expose alleged pedophiles.
The Enterprise Report sought comment from NBC about Mr. Ciralsky directly, but did not receive a response before publication of this story.
