Free Propaganda Now!

“But Surly, are there any other government agencies that produce VNRs?”

Absolutely! For instance, there’s the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

True, I didn’t find any VNRs on their site. But there is this letter from the Government Accounting Office stating that

we [GAO] conclude that the prepackaged news stories in these VNRs constitute covert propaganda and violated the publicity or propaganda prohibition because ONDCP did not identify itself to the viewing audience as the producer and distributor of these prepackaged news stories.

Personally, I think that ONDCP should post its VNRs on its Web site. We should at least have access to the propaganda produced by our tax dollars. Free propaganda now!

    No. I’m definitely not saying THAT.

    I hope that people won’t use this as an excuse for anti-cylon violence… There’s nothing in Robot’s Rules of Order that condones eye-tooking.
