The Chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, overseeing US media directed at foreign audiences, says his organization needs more money to fight its enemies. Namely, Russia, Iran, Venezuela and China.
The head of the media organization which oversees America's international broadcasting has labeled RT, Press TV and CCTV as its “enemies”.
“We can't allow ourselves to be out-communicated by our enemies,” said Walter Isaacson, chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. “You've got Russia Today, Iran's Press TV, Venezuela's TeleSUR, and of course, China is launching an international broadcasting 24-hour news channel with correspondents around the world [and has] reportedly set aside $6 -10 billion dollars – we have to go to Capitol Hill with that number – to expand their overseas media operations.”
And it is now looking for state funds to fight these repressors of the freedom of speech.
