New CPD Perspectives: U.S. International Broadcasting
"Seventy Years of the Smith-Mundt Act and U.S. International Broadcasting: Back to the Future?" examines the evolution of American international broadcasting, looking at it through the context of post-WWII, post-Cold War and today.
"The report does not purport to be a thorough retelling of the history of the Smith-Mundt Act's passage in early 1948, nor of amendments or other legislation that came later," notes Metzgar. "Rather, the work presented here seeks to offer a modest overview of the legislation that has governed U.S. international broadcasting, as well as public discussion about it, since the end of World War II."
