Kerry, Lautenberg Introduce Legislation to Stop Taxpayer-Funded Fake News Hearing on Bill Set for Early May

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Senators Frank R. Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) introduced legislation to address “covert propaganda” produced by the government. The legislation would require all “prepackaged news stories,” or video news releases, produced by the Administration to contain a disclosure of the source of the material. ...

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted Stevens has committed to holding a hearing and a markup on the bill in early May.

Should be an interesting hearing.
