The State Department considers the fight against the state-owned mass media of Russia, China and Iran to be one of its top priorities. RIA News a statement by the agency spokesman Heather Nauert, who currently serves as US undersecretary of state.


Nauert: one of the priorities of the State Department - the fight against the state media of Russia, China and Iran


About one and a half years ago, another priority emerged, and this is a priority for the Global Engagement Center — opposition to media propaganda owned by other states. This is what is being done now and this will be part of my work, I will seriously concentrate on this. I think this is a very serious question. If we look at propaganda, it comes from a number of states, including Russia, Iran and China,
said nuerth at the briefing.

She expressed gratitude to Congress, which allocated additional funds for this struggle.

According to her, the $ 40 million transferred from the Pentagon’s budget to the development of the Global Engagement Center “will be aimed at resolving two major issues - de-radicalization, the fight against extremism, and just opposition to propaganda.”

Recall, on Tuesday, Congressmen Seth Multon and Eliza Stefanik submitted to the House of Representatives the bill on combating foreign propaganda, which contains amendments to the law of 1934 year. In particular, lawmakers are proposing to oblige the media "to provide twice a year reports to the Federal Communications Commission, which will be published on its website." In addition, journalists will have to supply their materials with a note that this publication is sponsored by a certain state.

    It would also not hurt us to fight the American dirty media.

      Heather Nauert:
      ... The State Department considers one of its main priorities the fight against state-owned media in Russia, China and Iran ...

      For the sake of simplicity, he believed that diplomats are moving the state’s foreign policy, establishing contacts, well, to the region - they are monitoring, collecting information ... repeat
      But no, he was wrong - the struggle with the media is at the forefront of the “diplomats" of Merino wassat
      So it was just necessary to change the sign and not "fence the garden": instead of the State Department to be called - AntiSMI yes
      Everything is clear, clear and understandable laughing

          We also need to start with "rain" and "echo", and without delay.

      The situation, exactly the opposite, is reminiscent of the 70-80s, when the KGB and the USSR Ministry of Foreign Affairs struggled with the "corrupting influence of the West." Then we lost outright. )))

    The fight against the truth is the hobby of mattress, the creed .. As long as this perverted state exists on Earth, so much it is antagonistic to the truth. Lies, provocations, substitution of concepts - the essence of striped.

        Let us be fair - the task of any media, even American, at least any other, is not to convey a certain “truth” at all, but to create the image that a particular country needs in the media space.
        For them, our media is a lie. For us - the opposite. It’s like in a war. And actually, why "how"? Only war moves into more explicit forms. Perhaps it really starts to get a little hot, if the fight against the media is on the list of main threats. And bake probably inside.

    Any paradox is easily solved by elementary logic. What is the USA doing? - the mobilization of Europe and the polarization of world forces. What do they do for this? They produce an absurdity that cannot be abandoned. The problem remains in one: Europe is fed up with wars and all the culinary delights of a peaceful life. And I’m not ready to give it up. The Americans will have to start the war with the Britons with the help of Ukrainians, harnessing Europe to the hordes. And there is no other option ... except to live peacefully.

    Take an example from the Western media. Is Fox news a private channel in the USA? Something is confused. An example of news from this channel from March to the end of 2003. A constant display of crowds of "Iraqis" as they joyfully greet NATO troops. After all, now the Iraqi people are on the road to democracy. Overview of "successful operations" there US troops.

      They stuffed us with this exactly until the moment when we swallowed it all. Remember in the 90s how they treated the USA with us - the shining City on the hill, not otherwise.
      But it didn’t take off. Crowds of brainwashed trolls are certainly present. But they determine everything, as it turned out, it was not they at all, but real people who were not too attached to the opinion of the Internet. Which was demonstrated in the elections.
      The strategy that mistakenly relied on the influence of the Internet on the minds of the population did not work, as it worked in more primitive countries.

        So, our people, of course, are gullible (and there is nothing wrong with that, if within reasonable limits), but they are also strong with a "back mind". And the majority, making a decision, will still think hard.

        Then I will say for myself. Yes, of course, in the midst of the "perestroika" I was glad that relations between our countries seemed to have improved, but ... somewhere on a subconscious level, the feeling didn’t leave me - something was wrong here. The strange sediment from Desert Storm was quickly forgotten (but in vain). As a young man (at the time of the collapse of the USSR, he was 18 years old), I didn’t think much about what exactly was wrong and where the catch was ... I won’t say that it was fast, but it was clear - our First Chechen and later Yugoslavia finally opened their eyes to this " mound beyond the puddle. " And, to be honest, since the 94th I’ve talked with the National Bolsheviks for some time - they explained some points regarding the “two-faced foreign politician”. And, of course, the service (96-98) helped, where at that moment at least some ideology remained. Special thanks to the company (by the way, his name was Vladimir Vladimirovich wassat ), who in the moments of revelation used to say: "I will teach you to love the motherland." And, after all, he did not deceive, he taught the same. Here is such a "path to insight" in one particular case.

    the fight against state media Russia, China and Iran
    Well, the Americans have long identified their priorities in the fight against someone. True, China began to openly contribute not so long ago. But presumptuousness, impunity, and outright neglect of other countries can end in failure. Okay, there the boat froze, and after all, a fire may occur on one of the aircraft carriers, the California earthquake will shake again. Yes, not enough, what else? Fate is a complicated thing.

    State Department Priority: Fighting Russia as a whole, as a geopolitical competitor. Fighting our media is not a goal, but a means.

    Mwa ha ha ... and only recently, domestic liberals claimed that the old laws on counteracting propaganda and foreign agents no longer exist, and they exist only because they were forgotten to cancel. laughing
    PMSM, when we introduce a symmetrical law, the liberals will again say the same thing.

    All myths are already their own and debunked ... And freedom of speech, when you can pour on some and not on others, and freedom of religion, when in Christian countries all sorts of Satanists freely intoxicate people to Bosco, and freedom of conscience when the whole world sees that it they don’t know the concept, and freedom of movement when Russians are seized abroad, but migrants legally climb into them, play with their women and live (oh, Western dumbness), without working for benefits, etc. etc.
    The question is, why are they needed, these Constitutions, in the form in which they are written? Especially to us, is she needed? Wouldn't it be time to review its contents while there is still time?

    The fight against the media is simply a masterpiece.
    The Chinese lost free trade.
    We, (with one artie !!!) - a free press.
    The states didn’t try on a hat. Do not pull. Frankly not pulling sad
