    of a problem?

    If, until now, no one has had to report such, how could there possibly be any way to reliably tell whether or not a problem exists?  It could be massive, but until you require self-identification, there's no way to know.

    I agree with those who think it's a good development.  Require campaign propaganda to be labeled as such, just as other forms of campaign advertising already are - just like every billboard or tv ad with the 'paid for by the whatever campaign' on it.  (In re #2, this sounds like an attempt to modernize already existing requirements to acknowledge a new form of media, not simply 'singling it out'.)
