  • Now you really can't believe anything the news says.

    Check this out. My bro forwarded this to me. Holy cow.

    http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130715/11210223804/anti-propaganda-ban-repealed-freeing-state-dept-to-direct-its-broadcasting-arm-american-citizens.shtml

    Anti-Propaganda' Ban Repealed, Freeing State Dept. To Direct Its Broadcasting Arm At American Citizens
    from the 'our-top-pre-approved-story-tonight...' dept

    The US government has a bit of a PR problem at the moment, thanks to Ed Snowden's leaks and a decade-plus of general antipathy towards its constituents' rights and liberties growing out of its War on Terror.

    Fortunately, the government now has a chance to aim its official version of today's news at US citizens, thanks to the repeal of a so-called "anti-propaganda" law earlier this month.

        For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts.

    The Broadcast Board of Governors, which produces programming like the Voice of America and Radio Free Europe, has been prevented from aiming its programming at Americans since the 1970's when the Smith-Mundt Act (which authorized the State Dept. to communicate with foreign audiences via many methods, radio being one of them) was amended to prohibit domestic dissemination of the BBG's broadcasts. This was done to distance the State Department's efforts from the internal propaganda machine operated by the Soviet Union.

  • It's gonna get worse before it gets better.

    The "gets better" part may actually be wishful thinking.

  • Western yellow journalism is so rampant, they don't even pretend anymore.

    I was watching CNN for a few minutes last night, and they made fun of Vladimir Putin for having some nasty paintings (Putin in Sodomite lingerie) removed forcefully and hopefully burned, which obviously the entire "news" station (read: the government) found to be an infraction of human rights. (HOW Russia violated this graffiti artist's rights, I don't know, but that's what this idiot was peddling on CNN). The "anchor" (as IF) went on to show pictures of Putin without his shirt on hunting, and giggled (yes, GIGGLED) that the paintings at least showed Putin with more clothes on, and (still cackling like a hen) said the "artist" (vandalist) just put more clothes on Putin.

     :really-mad2:

    Of course this YELLOW JOURNALISM lie machine of the state (CNN, and all the others) really wants to make Putin look foolish so they can explain away Russia and China WALKING OUT of a U.N. Meeting about NATO "Taking Action" Against Big Bad Syria.

    It's so obvious what these really bad government employees ("news anchors") are trying to do, but not even the Murcans are buying into Obama's reasons to invade Syria and dethrone a king. Obama doesn't have his own people behind his evil lies, and two world superpowers (Russia and China) literally stood up and WALKED OUT of the lying UN meeting.

    Which, btw,  :applause: to Russia and China.

    I'm SO rooting for Russia/China/Syria and anyone else who gets on board against the Western imperialism that is spreading nothing more than the Sodomite message. I expect to hear Russia, China, and Syria are the new "axis of evil" any day now.

  • There was an immense amount of US government-funded propaganda before.  The fund allocation process has simply become more stream-lined.  The CIA had plenty of paid assets working for them in newspaper rooms and broadcasting studios throughout the country.  And don't forget the celebrities, novelists, publicists, and agents the spooks employed.
