We can thank a Obama for repealing the Smith-Mundt Act in 2013 allowing propaganda back in our media. So it's all we get now. You know, Obama being the best president we ever had and all. reply to: musicismagic

No president can repeal a law. Obama signed the NDAA of 2013 which was passed with a House Republican majority.

The first amendment allows our media to say pretty much whatever they wish about the government.

Smith-Mundt had no effect on CNN or any other news sources (because first amendment) before or after it was amended. It only affected materials produced by the US Government for foreign dissemination.

Irrelevant. Smith-Mundt had and has no authority concerning private media. CNN, Fox, whatever. It prevented the US Government agency which produces foreign broadcasts (yes, propaganda) from releasing those broadcasts within the US (even though anyone with a shortwave radio can listen to them anytime they want to). Smith-Mundt was amended such that such information can now be obtained by US persons. It's nice to know what our Government is telling the world about us, don't you think?

‘Sec. 501. (a) The Secretary and the Broadcasting Board of Governors are authorized to use funds appropriated or otherwise made available for public diplomacy information programs to provide for the preparation, dissemination, and use of information intended for foreign audiences abroad about the United States, its people, and its policies, through press, publications, radio, motion pictures, the Internet, and other information media, including social media, and through information centers, instructors, and other direct or indirect means of communication.



The link is in the article to the House Resolution.

What resolution?
