Broadcasting Board of Governors exploits Dalai Lama's support for Voice of America while hiding its plan to end VOA radio to Tibet
The Broadcasting Board of Governors public relations officials should be ashamed to promote Dalai Lama’s support for the Voice of America in press releases and announcements while keeping hidden from the public in the same PR materials their plan to end Voice of America radio broadcasts to Tibet.
“For a journalistic organization, it is shameful and exploitative to omit such an essential piece of information,” one former VOA journalist told BBG Watch, “especially since these officials know that supporters of freedom in Tibet, human rights organizations and many members of Congress are trying to stop the BBG from ending Voice of America Tibetan radio broadcasts. Media in communist-ruled countries uses similar techniques to manipulate public opinion.”
