Ethiopia: VOA

Meskel Square reports about an ongoing “war” between Ethiopia and the Voice of America. The battle surrounds VOA broadcast service in Amharic. The Ethiopian News Agency comments on VOA “In their phone-in programs they have deliberately selected and organized individuals who have rehearsed what bad things to say about the situation in Ethiopia . The overwhelming majority of people arranged to ‘participate’ in the programs are carefully selected.”
