RT Win: Clinton asks for YOUR $cash$ as US PROPAGANDA MEDIA is loosing the Informational War. People Are Waking Up! (^<^)
Posted August 31, 2011on:
The US is losing the global information war, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared while appearing before a congressional committee to ask for extra funds to spread US propaganda through new media.
Clinton said existing private channels are not good enough to handle the job, naming as rivals Al Jazeera, China’s CCTV and RT — which she watches, she added.
Clinton was defending her department’s budget in front of the House’s Committee on Foreign Affairs on Wednesday.
Clinton said the US should step up its propaganda effort and get back “in the game” of doing “what we do best.”
“During the Cold War we did a great job in getting America’s message out. After the Berlin Wall fell we said, ‘Okay, fine, enough of that, we are done,’ and unfortunately we are paying a big price for it,” she said. “Our private media cannot fill that gap.”
“We are in an information war and we are losing that war. Al Jazeera is winning, the Chinese have opened a global multi-language television network, the Russians have opened up an English-language network. I’ve seen it in a few countries, and it is quite instructive,” she stated.
Things have changed a lot since the days when Western media outlets, including BBC and CNN, had a monopoly on the coverage of world news. More and more viewers across the world tune into various foreign media to get a fresh take on events.
It is all in the numbers. For instance, RT’s presence on YouTube is a real hit: almost 300 million views, when CNN International is struggling to reach 3 million.
RT’s constantly growing audience is an indication that the days of media monopoly are over and that people are demanding more multi-polar thinking.
The U.S. is losing an information war to alternative media outlets, including RT. That’s the message from Hillary Clinton to Congress members, who are questioning the State Department’s US $47 billion budget request for next year. And as RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports, the U.S. Secretary of State says Washington needs to step up its propaganda efforts.

YES HILLARY YOU ARE LOSING THE INFO WAR… but not because of a lack in propaganda efforts by the US government. You’re losing because the truth will always prevail… if you weren’t lying about almost everything that comes out of your filthy mouth, it wouldn’t be this way!!!
Enough is enough with these warmongers ruining the nation’s finances and bringing home soldiers in body bags for nothing but corrupt power politics. Obomber is no better than Bush!!
Hell, I have to go and find other countries Tv videos to find out the truth of whats happened in my own country!
