Ratings and Reviews
Great news, but limited sharing options
VOA is part of a dying breed of trustworthy news sources. I just wish the app would give me more options for sharing articles. The only available ones are Facebook, Twitter, Google+ (none of which I use) and email.
Should be renamed “voice of the democrat party”
Disappointing that a majority of the articles are framed to and support a political agenda using democrat pushed narratives. How about honestly reporting more than one view point to issues? Or allowing a comment section on the articles?
VOA was key to bringing down the ideology that the Soviet Union was built on, destroying a totalitarian socialist regime, freeing millions of people and now it seems to be pushing that same ideology. Sad.
Why not hire on some Turning point or Daily Wire writers for starters? Until there is some balance and honest attempts at telling the truth, this is just another source of democrat controlled fake news and propaganda. Tax payers supporting this should get more for their money.
I have listened to VOA since the 1950’s in Switzerland tuning in on lShort wave 41 meter band to listen to John Canceler and the Jazz Hour. I learned and listened to Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman. Artie Shaw and many more of the Swing era. Louis Armstrong and many of the Dixieland Bands were on the program and naturally American News.
Some years later, I immigrated to the States to experience this great country first hand. I still occasionally listen to VOA. A great station showing the best of America.
