Fake News, Total Propaganda and H.R.5736 - Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012

The Obama Administration's gutting of the original "Smith-Mundt Act" by H.R.5736 - Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 appears to have paved the way for government propaganda and "Fake News" en masse.

Considering the siege presently being laid in the media by the corporate controlled mainstream media against the present administration you have to wonder why the Trump Administration has not introduced a bill to reinstate the original "Smith Mundt Act"?

"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. So what just happened?

Until this month, a vast ocean of U.S. programming produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks could only be viewed or listened to at broadcast quality in foreign countries. The programming varies in tone and quality, but its breadth is vast: It’s viewed in more than 100 countries in 61 languages. The topics covered include human rights abuses in Iran, self-immolation in Tibet, human trafficking across Asia, and on-the-ground reporting in Egypt and Iraq.." - John Hudson  foreignpolicy.com 7/14/2013
