A New York Times reporter gave an advance copy of a column by Maureen Dowd to a spokesperson at the CIA,the Politico reported Tuesday.

Newly available CIA records obtained by Judicial Watch,a conservative watchdog group,reveal that reporter Mark Mazzetti forwarded an advance copy of a Dowd’s column to the CIA — a practice frowned upon within the industry,the Politico said.

Mazzetti’s forwarded the column to CIA spokesperson Marie Harf,on August 5,2011. The column about Kathryn Bigelow-Mark Boal’s film Zero Dark Thirty,about the killing of Osama bin Laden,criticised the White House for having “outsourced the job of manning up the president’s image to Hollywood,” Politico reported. He reportedly wrote: “this didn’t come from me… and please delete after you read. See,nothing to worry about!”
