nothing says land of the free quite like the 'department of defense' being openly advertising its influence in the film industry for over 100 years right on its .gov page

Americans love to criticize other countries (namely China) for their control over their respective media while failing to realize that Hollywood is already censored for "inaccuracies" by the god damned military

@starwall saying "inaccurate movies" is redundant, wonder what inaccuracies specifically the military decided was so critical to get right.

@starwall This isn’t always true. A lot of Hollywood studios will submit to the military for approval as part of an antiquated process from WW2 that offered access to military experts/equipment. Studios can absolutely release whatever they want without submitting however.

@garrett it's on a case by case basis but the fact is that it happens all the time and they're gloating about it

@starwall it’s only to get things for free though, not by the need to do it

@starwall If you want more information about this (backed up by FoI) check out spyculture.com. Tom Decker's been on the case for some years now.
