HR4310....SIGNED INTO LAW BY MOZLEM OWEBOMBYA...…..However, Kucinich does not oppose it for the reason that most people are against it. Many people feel it legalized the use of propaganda on American audiences. It is being said it allowed the material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon to strike the ban that had been in place on domestic dissemination of propaganda.
In layman’s terms the news media/government can broadcast propaganda to the American people as they please. However, I will leave it to the reader to make the judgment him/her self. However, it has been signed into place, and there is nothing that can be done about it at this time.
The greatest worry is that the the Bill essentially neutralized two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from their own government’s misinformation campaigns.
I, myself, do not trust the government period, so this does not affect my beliefs to any great degree. I take most of what they say as propaganda.
Here is the simplified description of the amendment:
Amendment No. 114—Reps. Thornberry (R-TX) and Smith (D-WA):The amendment would amend the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (known as the Smith-Mundt Act) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1986 and 1987 to clarify the authorities of the Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to prepare, disseminate and use public diplomacy information abroad and to strike the current ban on domestic dissemination of such material. The amendment would clarify that the Smith-Mundt Act’s provisions related to public diplomacy information do not apply to other federal departments or agencies (including the DoD).
