Juan Cole and VOA

Juan Cole has a post that is an article about Voice of America Radio. Apparently, the Director, who is a Bush appointee, has "reassigned" the network's award-winning journalist, who has been keeping the Director from "2d guessing" news copy, especially on Iraq.

VOA may not mean much to you - it didn't to me, to be honest about it. But this article is a story about the creeping Stalinism at work in this administration. It isn't a short entry, so if you don't read it all, do read the 2d to the last paragraph.
