Trump global media chief faces GOP backlash over firings

Published Thu Jun 18 2020 16:43:27 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
The new chief of U.S.-funded global media is facing a surprising conservative backlash over his decision to fire the heads of at least two international broadcasters. This is adding to concerns about the direction of the agency, which oversees Voice of America and other outlets. The criticism of Michael Pack is unusual because it's coming from supporters of President Donald Trump who had supported his controversial nomination to run the U.S. Agency for Global Media over staunch Democratic objections. Trump allies have offered public support for the ousted head of the Middle East Broadcasting Networks. Others have taken issue with the firing of the head of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Pack sacked both of them late Wednesday.
