Here are the State Department objectives taken from materials provided by IVCLA for the "Creative Broadcast Programming", a regional project on Iraq.
  • Examine the role of popular culture and entertainment media in shaping public perceptions.
  • Learn about the relationship between the media, public broadcasting, entertainment industry, and the government and the policies that oversee this relationship.
  • Engage with writers, producers and media personalities involved in the broadcasting of news, current affairs education, music, arts, science and coverage of international issues, as well as drama, comedy and entertainment; and
  • Provide exposure to the geographical, cultural social and ethnic diversity of the United States.

    As Full Disclosure® is "the news behind the news" the visiting broadcasters got a candid report on the relationship between government and the Full Disclosure Network®. During the meeting there was a exchange of information on issues that impact broadcasters world wide, in particular the issues of government control of the media, and the impact of the Internet and bloggers on traditional media and government.

    Full Disclosure® is preparing a Video Report on this July 29th meeting to be released soon along with video clips from a previous meeting with journalists and broadcasters from Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Saudia Arabia, and United Araba Emerits in May of 2009.

    The IVCLA arranged a prior meeting with Full Disclosure® and visiting Russian journalists that was video recorded in October 2008 and is available for viewing HERE.
