U.S. Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Richard Stengel and U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic Andrew Schapiro visited the headquarters of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty earlier this week, to learn more about the network’s efforts to bring unbiased and accurate reporting to audiences throughout its broadcast region.
During the November 4 visit, Stengel and Schapiro met with RFE/RL leadership and staff to discuss the network’s coverage of ISIL, initiatives to counter Russian propaganda and the development of a regional reporting fellowship. They were also given a briefing on RFE/RL’s new joint project with Voice of America, Current Time, which provides Russian speaking audiences in Ukraine and several other countries along Russia’s borders with accurate, unbiased news and information.
