Under the pen-name Tomas D. Schuman, Bezmenov authored the book Love Letter to America. The author's biography of the book states "Like a true-life Winston Smith, from George Orwell's 1984, Tomas Schuman worked for the communist equivalent of Orwell's Ministry of Truth—The Novosti Press Agency. Novosti, which means 'News' in Russian, exists to produce slanted and false stories to plant in the foreign media. The term for this K.G.B. effort is 'disinformation.' "
Tomas D. Schuman was associated with the World Information Network (WIN) of Westlake Village, California. In 1983, at a lecture in Los Angeles, Bezmenov expressed the opinion that he "wouldn't be surprised" if the Soviet Union had shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007 in order to kill Larry McDonald, a member of the United States House of Representatives.
