VOTE ON Video News Release DISCLOSURE OCTOBER 20
http://www.prwatch.org/node/4070

This from pr watch. There is a vote in the commerce committee tomorrow according to it. Maybe we could find out who is on the commerce committee and get faxes and emails to them TODAY? PR Watch also has an action page you can get to through the links here.

On October 20, the U.S. Senate's Commerce Committee will consider
the Truth in Broadcasting Act, "as part of a mark-up session with
three other bills." (The meeting will be webcast, at
www.commerce.senate.gov .) The Act would require government-funded
video news releases (VNRs) or audio news releases to carry a clear
disclaimer, such as a "conspicuous" tag reading, "Produced by the
U.S. Government" visible "for the entire duration" of the VNR.

See our "No Fake News!" page for actions you can take to demand accountability for propagandists and disclosure of all materials provided to newsrooms by third parties.
