Report: Trump Just Removed The Heads of 4 “Anti-American” Taxpayer-Funded Propaganda Media Outlets
Have you ever heard of the U.S. Agency for Global Media? You may recognize it by its former name, “Broadcasting Board of Governors.”
What the group does is broadcast news and information about the United States and the world to audiences abroad.
Basically, it’s our own “propaganda wing.” All countries do it.
However, with the current state of the U.S., I am sure you can imagine that the AGM was being used as more of an “anti-American mouthpiece” than anything else.
So, here we are, hardworking American taxpayers paying our own money to have our fellow (communist) Americans make us look like idiots and monsters to the rest of the world.
President Trump had enough of this nonsense, especially after COVID, where these outlets operating under the AGM were going so far as to push China propaganda.
Why did it become so popular to hate the greatest country on earth?
Presidnet Trump said “that’s it” and brought in a new AGM CEO who, on his very first day on the job fired four of the top media heads and caused an earthquake – with Trump’ss critics calling it a “massacre.” 😂
Excellent! We love to hear it!
The new chief executive of the agency that oversees Voice of America and other government-backed broadcasters said he did not act illegally in firing senior figures on his first day on the job.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Michael Pack denied that he was turning the outlets into a mouthpiece for President Trump, said he would guarantee the independence of journalists working for him, and accused the Biden campaign of pandering to partisan politics with its threat to remove him in the event of a change of president.
Pack took up his post with the U.S. Agency for Global Media two weeks ago after a contentious nomination process dominated by questions about his relationship with former Trump strategist Steve Bannon.
He immediately removed the heads of four of the organizations under the AGM umbrella — Radio Free Asia, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the Middle East Broadcasting Network — and brought in political appointees to replace the boards that had governed the services previously. The director of VOA had already resigned.
What became known as the “Wednesday night massacre” brought an immediate legal challenge. A lawsuit filed by former members of the advisory boards contended that the dismissals breached federal guarantees of the broadcasters’ independence.
But Pack said the new chief executive role was part of a reorganization following years of alleged mismanagement and bipartisan agreement that a part-time board was insufficient to oversee an $800 million budget and organizations with a weekly audience of 350 million people.
“I believe when the CEO position was created, it explicitly addressed these things and wanted the CEO to have this power,” he said. “If it were illegal, needless to say, I wouldn’t have done it, and if my legal counselor told me it was illegal, I wouldn’t do it.”
He said he would now look into recent problems to work out a way forward for the AGM.
This is tremendous. It’s the “little things” that President Trump is cleaning up that are also a huge part of the swamp.
You can bet your bottom dollar that the Deep State used AGM as a weapon against Trump since day one.
