Trump Seizes Control of Voice of America

"One of the largest media networks in the world" is now captive to Trump.

Quote:
This month, President Donald Trump successfully coerced Senate Republicans to ram through the stalled nomination of conservative filmmaker Michael Pack to run the United States Agency for Global Media, which oversees a handful of federally funded but editorially independent media organizations, like Voice of America. Pack, an ally of former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, was selected by Trump in hopes of steering favorable coverage from the group of outlets, which, put together, amount to one of the largest media networks in the world. Trump has railed on about the buttoned up coverage of VOA, which broadcasts in 40 languages to as many as 280 million people a week, at one point referring to it as the “Voice of the Soviet Union,” and more recently accusing it of reciting Chinese propaganda. On Wednesday night, Pack did what he was sent to do and summarily fired the heads of the five media organizations overseen by the media agency. Pack also dismissed the bipartisan board that oversees the media organizations, replacing it with Trump loyalists, including himself as the chair.

Your article did not say two top ranking swamp creatures quit because they could not write leftist propaganda anymore. Good riddens.

@glitterbag,
I have more bravery in my little toe than you have in your entire family tree.

And yes, it is none of your business.

I don't see it. I see your service as detrimental if your attitude has always been like this.

@coldjoint,
Dear non-patriot, please just imagine what I might have said, and what all of the others who served might have said to keep your sorry ass safe..we were happy to do it...because you would not have survived, you and Oral should be thankful for all the people who have shed blood to protect you and yours. You're not, but that's ok, because my Dad and all the others didn't sign up up just to serve the frivolent. They didn't die just so you could express your hatred, they served and died so you can spew any bullshit you choose. Just say Thanks to all the men who served prior to your birth, and served so you can say anything you want because they believed in freedom and in this country so you don't have to serve.....or contribute......but that's ok, others serve so you can sit on your ass and complain about how annoyed you are for being such a waste of time.

Really? How many of your relatives are buried in Arlington? Please tell me it's none of my business so everybody who every reads this forum, knows no one in your family has ever fought for this county.

@glitterbag,
Telling you that it's none of your business doesn't tell anyone any such thing.

I guess it should come as no surprise that you don't understand what none of your business means.

If you were capable of understanding that, you'd actually know to mind your own business.

Knowing people like you worked for the government gives me nightmares.

@glitterbag,
It sure as **** IS glitters' business. It's all of our business. That's what democracy is all about. No matter what trump thinks he is not our king. Neither is it only the business of his toadies.
