Gee, they really didn’t want to say “spy,” did they? And with that, the Times’ headline sparked even more mockery:

Two of my personal favorites are "The Cloaked Investigator Who Came In From The Cold," and "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Cloaked Investigator." But I'm also partial to the Brad Pitt/Robert Redford classic "Cloaked Investigator Game." https://t.co/STVcD03CFL

I also love "Austin Powers: The Cloaked Investigator Who Shagged Me." https://t.co/xNxHYOXetd

Why has the MSM’s reputation taken such a hit in the last couple years? It’s a total mystery! *Eye roll*
