We Americans forget the impact of propaganda the world uses from Statements made by Hillary Clinton. Her recent statements at a hearing last week are big news on the world stage. I got this story out of the Propaganda arm of Russia: Pravda RU. You see, Russia also supports Obama’s wish that the U.S. carry Al Jazerra. Note our earlier post: Obama urges cable companies to carry Al Jazeera Take a look at who all is behind this push. Oh, by the way meanwhile, Obama shuts off Voice of America to China. Go figure. That is right. They have our stash.
Hillary was not her usual automaton self in the video below. Her slow monotone drone, eyes shifting mechanically right and left in a downward glance are missing. The cackle is special. Hey, America on the ropes. Looking good.
“Like it or hate it, it is really effective,” Clinton said. “In fact, viewership of Al-Jazeera is going up in the United States because it is real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news that is not providing information to us, let alone foreigners.” Has she really watched it? I have…so much better than Fox News…
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton believes that the role of the United States on the international arena is weakening. America, Clinton believes, has lost the information war with China and Russia. Therefore, the US administration must not cut the spending on propaganda.
“America is in an “information war and we are losing the war,” she stated appearing before a US Foreign Policy Priorities committee. Thirty million dollars is not enough for propaganda, she claimed. Clinton is certain that one should not concentrate too much on the Internet, because the majority of people still learn the news on television and radio.
According to Clinton, the USA’s major competitors are Al Jazeera, CCTV (China) and Russia Today. Al Jazeera is the ultimate leader, Clinton said. Here is our earlier story Obama shuts down voice of America to China
Mrs. Clinton did not specify possible financial amounts. It was obvious, though, that she was not satisfied with several tens of millions of dollars scheduled in the budget to celebrate victory over competitors on the Internet.
