The Muffled Voice

February 1982
National Review;2/19/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 3, p156
This article reports on the developments at Voice of America radio network in the U.S. The network is trying to oust broadcaster Philip Nicolaides of the network for trying to change some of the policies at the network. He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan's administration. For some years the VOA has operated on the premise that "objectivity" requires muting the view that freedom is preferable to tyranny, the West to Communism. That reality it considers propaganda. It has prided itself on its "warts and all" portrayal of the United States.
