Protip: anytime any organization puts out a press release to tell you how happy happy joy joy the employees are? They're lying.

The agency also put out a press release, claiming: "Pack's message was met with an overwhelmingly positive response by staff and grantees, who personally reached out and candidly congratulated him."

They then dropped to their knees and personally fellated Pack from under his desk chair, then all the interns ripped their tops off and flung themselves on his ripped abs, as his massive, 12-foot penis, which is in no way horribly deformed or underused, made them wild with ecstacy.

This is my complete lack of surprise that a Trump toady would break the rules/laws or anything else to get what he wanted.

This happens all the time in the radio game. The new programming manager is changing the format. Instead of messages encouraging people towards self-determination, those stations will be broadcasting commercials for Trump's various business interests. "Mention this ad and receive a complimentary olive in your martini" kind of stuff.

I don't think it will be a ratings hit.

When you or I break a Federal law, we are looking at jail time.

When a Trump official breaks a Federal law, nothing happens.

It's good to be the king I guess.

Biden better de-trumpify the entire federal government.

It's oddly amazing that Trump didn't do this at the beginning of his term. Doing it now hints at a disturbing degree of Trump's confidence he will win re-election.

He was really busy filling all of the other posts with is toadies, took him awhile to get to this. Besides, it's only recently that he lost Faux News, he already had his own propaganda outlet, he only needed a new one now.

There's also the distinct possibility that this was in writing somewhere, so Trump being Trump, he had to wait for someone to send him a drawing.

I'm not sure he knew about VOA.

Maybe it's more he's seeing his not going to win the election and is getting the state media propaganda system in place to hard push messaging for Plan B - Coup Time.

Lets all be honest here, if you didn't expect this to happen you are completely clueless as to whats going on in America right now.

Hannity and Levin are shiatting egg rolls. Levin has scruples, I think, especially compared to the daily gurgling of Donald Donuts Sweet Glaze. They are both seeing things fall apart, and are both terrified for different reasons.

If things go well, every single one of those (your epithet here) will have their desks cleared out and travel plans booked in

It seems forever ago when we happily riffed on Bannon, Rinced Pubes, and Snek. And the size of his inauguration crowd. Simpler times.

Since then, Bunkie has been getting suggestions from people who are more demented than the trio above. Is there a /r/foolsforhire?...

Andy Travis:  Does your mother want this station to make money?

Carlson:  In that case Andrew, you've got a free hand from here on out...for the time being

Uh, these changes...they uh,wouldn't necessitate the playing of rock and roll music, would they?

Andy:  Possibly.

Carlson: Dear God, she's gonna kill us all.

It's LITERALLY not. Here's the entire first paragraph:

"New U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack swept into office like a man on a mission last week, firing the top executives and advisory boards of federally funded international broadcasters which weekly reach 340 million people abroad. A new lawsuit alleges he broke federal law in doing so."

Which specific law is cited there? Link to it.

I don't usually engage in this particular game but just look at dude, there.

Look at the age. Look at the crows' feet. Look at the Brylcreem'd hair, the carefully-sculpted wings of authority.

Then look again, more closely.


Look at the cheap shirt and ill-fitting jacket. Look at the $20 tie. And look at that farking expression. This man is not just any Trumpy boogerlicker; not just any beaten cut offered a chance to bite. This man lives in the fantasyworld. Democrats are in league with Satan to steal, rape and then cook your children on a pizza AND WE NED TO SPREAD THE WORD

The whole place will have to be cleaned after Trump.  And the right will accuse the President of "purges".  They will because they have no shame.

You sure your not talking about trump?

If Biden wins the election, he better follow through and put all these clowns in prison for all the laws they are breaking.  Washington needs to understand that if you break the law while in office, the next guy is going to throw the book at you.  Our system of pretending all the crimes did not happen once a new administration comes in, needs to stop.
 
2020-06-25 7:31:07 AM  
Why does it take a lawsuit to make the laws stick. Law breakers should just be farking void.

Okay;

The United States International Broadcasting Act, Pub. L. No. 103-236, 108 Stat. 432 (April 30, 1994.)

Now, are you gonna say "thank you for doing my research," or come up with some other handwaving bullshiat?
