U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack defied a congressional subpoena to appear before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, but five former executives of the agency testified about changes made since Mr. Pack took office in June 2020. Both Chair Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Ranking Member Michael McCaul (R-TX) expressed concerns about the leadership at the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM). Ranking Member McCaul said, “the agency’s mission is being undermined from the top.” USAGM is the parent agency of Voice of America (VOA) and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFERL). The executives, who either resigned or were fired, discussed the dangers of politicizing the agency, including the undermining of journalists' reputations, underfunding of its entities, and the increased spread of misinformation by state actors. close
