" Trump’s Pick Could Move VOA Further Right—But It’s Never Been an Independent Outlet"

Seriously? VOA, independent outlet? Next thing you gonna tell me RT is an independent outlet.

They are both propaganda outlets of their respective governments that fund them.

Ever since 1996 telecommunications decriminalization disguised as “deregulation”, most media are “propaganda outlets of their respective governments” or CORPORATIONS that “fund them”.

VOA will probably add Rush and some faux noise celebs to their line-up, opening up a faux job for Trump’s new “press secretary” McNinny who is obviously bucking for a career at faux noise.

Please remember that VOA with a 24 year old Princeton grad started the Hungarian revolution in 1956.

Trump’s pick of Pompeo is far more dangerous.
Watch out if he becomes next VP.
The prez would McD die and …

“Trump’s Pick Will Move VOA Further Right,” and that’s the idea.
Fits right in with the announced (in 2017) “deconstruction of the administrative state.”
