VOA falsely accused
A Chinese state television report accused Voice of America broadcasts for encouraging self-immolations in Tibet. CCTV also accused VOA of using secret code to send messages to people inside Tibet. VOA Director Ensor and State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland rejected the claims by Chinese state media, and called the self-immolations a sign of the distress in Tibet. VOA continues to provide objective, balanced and comprehensive coverage on the tragic events in Tibet.
