Secretary of State Highlights the Important Role of American Broadcasting Networks in the Modern World
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a speech at the Voice of America on Monday, noting that the organization’s mission is to “promote democracy, freedom and American values around the world.”.
Pompeo noted that after the Cold War, American broadcasting networks “lost their way”, but thanks to recent reforms, a “new dawn” is coming.
“The Trump administration is not trying to politicize these institutions, it is trying to depoliticize them,” the secretary of state stressed. According to him, today the role of the Voice of America is especially important.
“Governments in countries like China, Iran and North Korea do not have the same respect for human dignity that America is based on,” he said. “We know that governments exist to serve the people. They believe that humans exist to serve governments. The work Voice of America is doing is vital. You are the tip of the spear of freedom. Each week, Voice of America is listened to by 278 million people in 47 languages ”.
“The Iranians are listening to you, wondering if they will ever be able to throw off the shackles of Islam. Moldovans and Ukrainians who need truthful journalism, not Russian disinformation and propaganda. Chinese citizens who are tired of a regime that has given them nothing but ill-treatment since 1949. Venezuelans who want to know the truth about the corruption of the Maduro regime. There are oppressed people around the world who still look to America for hope. “.
The Secretary of State emphasized the courage of journalists covering events in Hong Kong and Xinjiang despite the dangers involved..
“Keep telling the world what’s going on in its most difficult parts,” Pompeo urged. “By bringing the truth to the world, America brings light”.
