“Prepackaged News Story Announcement Act” – S. 967

In a little noticed development Thursday, the Senate Commerce Committee approved the “Prepackaged News Story Announcement Act,” legislation requiring “that all prepackaged, government-produced news stories – which are designed to be indistinguishable from those created by independent news organizations – include disclaimers notifying the audience that the government produced or funded the news segment.” The bill will now be considered by the full Senate.
