Voice of America Quiet Newsroom

image from entry, which notes:  The featured photo showing an empty anchor desk was actually used sometime ago in a Voice of America promo of the State of the Union VOA news coverage.

A Voice of America (VOA) reporter says:
 “It is so quiet at times in the [Voice of America] newsroom you would think we were closed.”
 “Stories are not updated for hours, and even then only cursorily.”
 “Large numbers of [VOA] newscast shifts are being covered by contractors.”
 “No one seems to be in charge.”
 “It’s creepy.”
 “I hate even being in this environment.”
