Og, Reilly?

Great, now do domestic propaganda.

If by demoted, you mean willingly chose not to compete for the job in front of the board, then sure.

Oh, who reads articles. At least I read Article 1 in another thread. Voice of America job, not Biden as the URL suggested. I'll gladly be wrong about this trivial shiat rather than be wrong about how the Senate and House of Reps work.

According to two people with knowledge, Reilly and his deputy, former State Department official Elizabeth Robbins, were escorted from the building. Robbins has told colleagues she is on "administrative leave."
...
She then challenged Reilly over failing to ask Pompeo any questions about the siege of Congress by a pro-Trump mob. Reilly barked at Widakuswara, "You obviously don't know how to behave." It then fell to Robbins, who had previously worked for Pompeo at the State Department, to tell the reporter she was done.



Good farking riddance.

"'The continuing, vindictive pettiness of these people still is amazing'"

Yeah, sounds like it: "Reporter Patsy Widakuswara, who was demoted twice in 24 hours after the incident"

If you're wrong about the "trivial shiat," you're not likely to be doing as great a job with that other stuff as you'd hope.

This is what draining the swamp looks like.

FTA:

Their patron, former U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack, resigned Wednesday at Biden's request after a stormy seven-month term in which he said he had to "drain the swamp" at VOA and USAGM. Some of Pack's loyalists who were still at the agency were trying as late as Thursday afternoon to force out the executives and senior VOA staff that Pack targeted, according to four people with knowledge.

Yeah, get rid of all that Trumper scum.

dickrickulous: Great, now do domestic propaganda.


uh, that's technically what VoA does.

It's state media, like RT or Deutsche Welle. For the longest time it was actually illegal to broadcast VoA in the US, until someone pointed out (1) it was trivially easy to find it on the internetron & (2) it's not great when you can get state media from other countries in the US but not our own.

Also since those people are considered press, they'd fall under these recent comments by Forbes.

Still not revealing my location, but I can see the towers of... and drive past every time I go anywhere...

...a well known and well established and extremely popular (among conservatives) radio station...
...who would LOVE to have Pence there, just spending a few hours a day just speaking his mind.

This spiteful partisan behavior is going to be revealed at every agency.  The damage is severe but as we can see, it can be repaired and even a little justice done in the process.

I think faking a conversation with puppets is the equivalent of masturbating while looking at yourself in the mirror.
