Who interned for the CIA in college, causing some to believe that he is an active agent?
Answer: Anderson Cooper is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt and a descendant of Cornelius Vanderbilt. He attended Yale University, a well-known recruiting ground for the CIA, where he studied political science. He interned for two summers at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia in a program for students interested in intelligence work. Cooper later called the work “pretty bureaucratic” and “mundane” and decided not to pursue intelligence work as a profession. However, he did not find it interesting enough and decided to become a journalist instead.
