An amendment to legalize use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill.
The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors.
The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize 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 our own government’s misinformation campaigns.
