Judge Rules Trump Appointee Interfered in VOA Management

Chief U.S District Court Judge Beryl Howell on Friday ordered President Donald Trump appointee Michael Pack to stop interfering in the Voice of America news coverage and editorial personnel matters.

Trump had nominated Pack to be chief executive of the U.S. Agency for Global Media more than two years ago. The U.S. Senate confirmed him in June.

The federal judge ruled that Pack has acted unconstitutionally in investigating what he claimed was a deep-seated bias against President Trump by his own journalists.

VOA and its sister networks reach more than 350 million people overseas each week.
