Repeal Of Smith-Mundt Statute Which Bans Internal CIA Propaganda

Rate this Entry
Maybe this issue was debated here years ago, but it came as a shock to me this morning. On Washington Journal on C-Span, two different people called in and blamed the recent takeover of the media by the CIA on the repeal of the Smith-Mundt Law in 2013. That is the law that made it illegal for the CIA to direct propaganda internally inside the United States.

These callers thought that this action explains why the media is now mostly a CIA mouthpiece. In other words, it is a legalized Operation Mockingbird.
