For what? Propping up US foreign policy? FN

The U.S. International Broadcasting Act of
1994<http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=U.S._International_Broadcasting_Act_of_1994&action=edit&redlink=1>(Title
III of Pub.L.
103–236<http://www.law.cornell.edu/jureeka/index.php?doc=USPubLaws&cong=103&no=236>)
is more explicit about the mission of RFA:

the continuation of existing U.S. international broadcasting, and the
creation of a new broadcasting service to people of the People's Republic
of China and other countries of Asia, which lack adequate sources of free
information and ideas, would enhance the promotion of information and
ideas, while advancing the goals of U.S. foreign policy.
