More PR Propaganda For The Empire At Once! Says Hillary
Shame about those dead kids in Afghanistan, but we need more propaganda!
From Business Insider
Hillary Clinton was defending her department budget in front of the U.S. Foreign Policy Priorities committee this morning on C-Span.
She says a major reason the State Department needs money is because "we are in an information war and we are losing that war."
...Meanwhile she says Al-Jazeera, CCTV and Russia Today are killing it: "Al Jazeera is winning. The Chinese have opened up a global English language and multi-language television network, the Russians have opened up an English language network. I've seen it in a couple of countries and it's quite instructive."
Clinton says she is leading an effort to spread U.S. propaganda through new media, with twitter feeds in Arabic and Farsi.
