Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) ($777 million in FY 2017) CEO and Director John F. Lansing has assured employees of the dysfunctional federal agency in charge of the Voice of America (VOA) that there will be no change in leadership and that he is looking forward to working with the Donald Trump administration even though, in violation of the VOA Charter, the Voice of America has turned highly partisan and published a number of one-sided attacks on Trump, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Harry Reid and others during the 2016 election campaign and is posting poorly-produced and embarrassing “click-bait” animal videos at U.S. taxpayers’ expense.
