In my June 30, 2021 op-ed in The Washington Examiner, I have a reference to a 1993 letter written by then U.S. Senator from Delaware Joe Biden to the Director of the United States Information Agency (USIA) Joseph Duffey and to the Chairman of the Board for International Broadcasting (BIB) Dan Mica in which Biden expresses his strong support for independent grantee status for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL).
My op-ed in The Washington Examiner was written in response to recent media reports suggesting that leaders who have been long in charge of both the Voice of America (VOA) and the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) are responsible for a management culture which allows major abuses of journalistic practices and the VOA Charter to occur, such as repeating propaganda of the genocidal regime in Ethiopia and disinformation from the authoritarian governments in Russia, China and Iran.
Biden can combat foreign propaganda by reforming Voice of America
