PROPOSED CUTS WOULD EVISCERATE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE VOICE OF AMERICA (April 6, 2006) from www.uexpress.com/georgieannegeyer

WASHINGTON — My first reaction, when I heard that the Voice of America is going to abolish most of its English-language programs to the world, was how downright stupid such a move is.
Since President Eisenhower founded organizations like the Voice after World War II as instruments to defend the United States by broadcasting fair and accurate news to the world, the Voice has been an inexpensive treasure house to the nation. It has influenced countless leaders, often when they were young, standing in the fields and back alleys of dictatorships and autocracies for whom the very word “news” is subversive.
