The major news outlets in the United States are all considered private,

  • ABC News
  • CBS News
  • CNN
  • Fox News Channel
  • MSNBC
  • NBC News

But there are lots of reports of the government spending millions on advertising

According to the report, the federal government obligates, on average, nearly $1 billion a year for advertising and PR contracts. Most of that money goes toward advertising. Another roughly $500 million goes toward salaries for federal public relations employees.

Does any of that money go to "funding" the above PR companies. All of these companies have YouTube channels, and none of them are marked as "funded by the American government", but similar messages can be found on RT, PressTV, and TRT World.
