    Don't worry though, I am sure the government would never try to actually lie to us.

    I wouldn't trust the arbiters who would apply the definition. Who owns the definition mill out there in the public sphere? I can see a lot of mischief in something like this.

    Propaganda should NOT be banned. It's unethical but it's part of free speech.

    I wouldn't call it bipartisan until we see what kind of support it gets. Sure, it was introduced by dicks on either side of the aisle, but let's see who gets behind this swill.

    What do you want to call propaganda and misinformation?
    I'd say every press release from the White House is filled with both those things.
