"The aim of public diplomacy is to communicate America’s policies abroad and to engage international audiences about all things American. The problem is, we’re failing, and that’s to the detriment of our national security as well as commercial, cultural, and education interests. ... Our international broadcasting has few devotees." M.C. Andrews, a Spring 2010 [Harvard] Institute of Politics Fellow, former Special Assistant to the President, former White House Director of Global Communications and former Director for Democracy on the National Security Council Staff in the George W. Bush administration, Harvard Crimson, 23 February 2010. US international broadcasting has a weekly audience of 171 million, larger than ever.
