The Open Question: The Director of the voice of America Fires Back at Solzhenitsyn, Brookhiser

Hughes, John
July 1982
National Review;7/23/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 14, p899
The article presents the author's comments on the criticism of the radio network Voice of America (VOA), an international broadcaster of the U.S. government. VOA's mission is to provide objective news, to convey information on American society and institutions and to effectively present statements of the government policy. VOA was asked to comply with official government statements while reporting the fall of Saigon for the safety of thousands of people, who otherwise might have panicked during the evacuation. VOA has maintained a balance to present views of the members of the Congress from both the Democratic and the Republican Party.
