Its interesting that in with the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2013
, it contained an ammendement "The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act." That removes the limits (Smith-Mundt act of 1948) of the government to use propoganda.
The 2013 NDAA overturned a 64-year ban on the domestic dissemination of propaganda (described as "public diplomacy information") produced for foreign audiences, effectively eliminating the distinction between foreign and domestic audiences. Amendments made to the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987 allow for materials produced by the State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to be released within US borders.
