Political appointees investigated Voice of America journalist for possible anti-Trump bias: report | TheHill (When neo-fascists work for US – this happens)

The USAGM declined to comment to NPR, but 30 minutes after being contacted the agency issued a memo titled “Guidance on Conflicts of Interest” to staff. The memo states, for example, that a “journalist who on Facebook ‘likes’ a comment or political cartoon that aggressively attacks or disparages the President must recuse themselves from covering the President.”

VOA is subject to strict laws barring political interference or influence on its reporting. Earlier this year, Vice President Pence’s staff threatened action against Herman after he reported on Pence flouting the Mayo Clinic’s mask requirement during a visit during the pandemic.
