Another Step on the Road to Autocracy

Trump took a big step forward this past week in his relentless efforts to convert the United States of America from a democracy to an autocracy, once again with the shameful blessing of the Republican-controlled senate, installing a loyalist hack as head of the Voice of America. The hack immediately dismissed all the capable, independent, experienced, honorable division heads preparatory to replacing them with sub-hacks. The goal: to convert this long-standing, effective, non-partisan, internationally respected journalistic enterprise into a disseminator of Trumpist propaganda.
