President Donald Trump proposes a Government ran Television network for International news. The creation of this network is combat CNN international news bad mouthing the United States.
Trump made this announcement on Twitter on Monday.
CNN has been making a mockery of the United States airing in other Countries, portraying us in a negative light across the globe.
There is not much to the proposal but it likely will not be a State ran television that we normally would think of. I assume this will not be aired in the United States targeting our citizens, but likely going to target countries around the globe speaking in many different languages. The object would be to talk of the United States as a great Country that stands up for freedom.
We have had a similar station in the past during the 1940’s called Voice of America Service (VOA). It was created to combat the growth of Nazi propaganda.
VOA web page stated it’s agenda, “The Voice of America began broadcasting in 1942 to combat Nazi propaganda with accurate and unbiased news and information. Ever since then, VOA has served the world with a consistent message of truth, hope and inspiration.”
