FBI Turns to Propaganda in Faux News Report to Pump Up Triumphs

By Steve Neavling

The FBI is promoting itself using a faux journalism report on the radio that is intended to sound like a real new agency, the Daily Signal reports.

One new cast begins, “In a move demonstrating the FBI’s valuable role of protecting national security, Director James Comey creates a separate Intelligence Branch…”

Instead of using a real news anchor, the FBI is using a public affairs specialist.

The program is called “FBI This Week” and is aired regularly on the radio.

“[T]he programs that we produce are ultimately designed to aid and assist the public in protecting itself against crime,” says Susan McKee, the FBI’s chief of investigative publicity and public affairs.
