I agree with those whom have stated they don't see why it needed to be "officially" legalized. There was so much propaganda going on before; Why was it so imperative that it was put into words that it is now a "legal" thing to do (for the government of course)

This sort of gives us some insight into the administration's mindset, which was the original point of the thread.

I'm not here to debate whether or not we've been using propaganda, more like attempting to understand why it was so important to be put into a national defense bill.

The only conclusion I can come up with is:

The current administration is "openly" (i use that term lightly) admitting to using wide-spread psychological warfare against that of it's citizens. (What's new right?)

I ,personally, find it important because the current administration is doing things America would never do: Negotiating with terrorists, advocating propaganda to farther political agendas, allowing illegal immigrants into the country w/o taking the proper channels.

Why is there any necessity to repeal this law for the first time since 1948? Granted it was done in 2012, but still, I remain perplexed.

perhaps they're is a desire on some part to make government PR run "smoothly"; so, rather than have sensationalist scandal-seeking/making, highly partisan "journalism", that we've had since at least the mid 2000's; we have something that tries to explain the program from the perspective of how it's supposed to function, and why the government created it.

You could also argue that it could begin to signal something up with the whole ukraine situation, or Yellowstone....

Frankly I hope it's option C: promoting a government action/program/etc. (think American Conservation Corps.)....

Couldn't propaganda easily be classified as 'hate speech' ?

no not unless it's hate speech.

propaganda is advertising for the most part.
