    the propaganda produced by the government for outside review could hardly be worse than the propaganda produced by the mainstream media for domestic consumption at the federal governments behest

    certainly isn't much difference in what's reported with biased views and agenda pushing stories.Yet, you can hear VOA on the internet and on youtube so it's not like you couldn't hear it before this law.It just became outdated with todays technology.

    The longer Obama is in office, the more we are becoming like Germany under Hitler. Kill Lists, Secret Detention of Citizens, now a ministry of Propaganda after learning of the NSA recording all of our communications. What a sad state of affairs for the citizens of this country.

    That got me to thinking: why don't we go in the other direction, and use government transmitters to beam homegrown government propaganda to unfriendly countries? I bet North Korea would surrender in a matter of weeks if they had to listen to NPR and Chris Matthews.

    @Realthinker I'm still exploring that idea; I'd almost pay to see Chris Matthews on North Korean TV.

    To Matthews, absolutely everything is about race, but if there is a country in the world where absolutely nothing is about race, it is North Korea. It would be the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.

    Well we've had domestic propaganda for at least the past 40 years with the legacy broadcast TV media being so lieberal biased. Look at it now? They don't even try to hide the fact they are nothing more than propagandists for Comrade Imam Barat Hussein Obama.

    The international CNN doesn't even talk about the US anymore. It talks about Asia, Africa and Europe. I don't know what the US version of CNN is, but its hardly pro or anti American.

    We should be able to listen to what our government is broadcasting to other countries. We pay for it with our taxes and what is there to hide? I'm sure the tenor of the broadcasts will be different when listened to by Americans as well as third world countries. It will never be 100% true, the government produces the broadcast. We should be able to listen to the lies and judge for ourselves.

    We really need to know more. I've heard enough propaganda trying to hold up the Obama administration to hold me a life time without this act. I do not need to hear anymore! Ask me again when there is a different administration in office.

    No, I won't. I have never been apposed to an administration the way I am opposed to Obama's! Democrat or Republican!

    Or just as important, will anyone notice a difference from the current domestic righgtwing propaganda (e.g. Fox Nuisance, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, etc.). Having lived overseas and heard that crap, I can tell you they aren't any different.

    We are already a fascist nation and quickly becoming a regime. It took many, many years to happen, but here we are and if anyone ever asks us how it happened we can say "we were too busy arguing with one another over issues manufactured by our government so we wouldn't notice what was really going on."

    NBC is already Pravda West. Now they are going to spend money on more public service announcements because we're all such dunces we can't function without out government overseers.

    It paves the way for the government to put any spin on their activities they wish. All regimes want to control the media and this is just another step in that direction. Don't look for Fast & Furious, Benghazi, NSA, or the IRS issues to be headliners.

    Well seeing as those aren't really issues you're probably right. The govt already has control over the media, the right has Fox and basically all of radio, and the left has MSNBC. By the time you hear anything that's 'news' it's already been spun for you to hear it the way you want to hear it. It's why I don't watch the news.

    @AceLuby They are not issues to those who are willing to see this country go down the tubes or are not willing to look at the gross negligence they represent. They are issues to those of us who love this country and want it to be better than the progressives now in charge want.

    @SAS86 Not really. Most Americans really don't care about those issues. They know about it, but don't care to much. The reason why you hear so much about them is because you got sides that really want to push those issues for their agenda. But generally, the normal American living their day to day lives, they probably forgot about those issues, but know about it.

    Don't care either way. We have the internet now, and with the exception of China and a select other areas, opinions of the U. S. can come directly from viewing our entertainment, news, and government broadcasts like C-SPAN. One shining example: some of the youtube comments about the flight 214 pilot name prank "typical stupid Americans" etc. Everyone already HAS preconceived ideas about everyone else, so hearing what our government says about itself and us bothers me not at all.

    Nobody will anyone notice a difference from the current domestic righgtwing propaganda like Fox Nuisance, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, or any other. Those companies will quickly give up when they realize it's not profitable, that the market is already saturated with rightwingnut propaganda.

    Given that it's entire mission is to sell fabricated crap to other countries, they should call it Voiceover America. The real voice of American fascism and hypocrisy are covered up by voiceovers spewing fake "news".
