The article presents the author's reply to Director of the radio network Voice of America (VOA) John Hughes' comments on criticism of VOA. The author talked with several current and former VOA employees who had objection to VOA's compliance with the U.S. government statements on the fall of Saigon. He criticized the quality of material supplied to the language services. Hughes is a fine journalist whose tenure will benefit VOA. He complains of a journalistic culture which doesn't understand America fully and a foreign-policy establishment that doesn't know what it's doing.
