Update: Inner City Press, 10 Jan 2013, Matthew Russell Lee: "BBG's lawyers argued that it was somehow a 'personnel matter,' although Inner City Press did not and would not work for VOA. [VOA director] David Ensor wrote to the Governors and then Congress (but never Inner City Press or the UN) admitting that the request to get the UN to dis-accredit Inner City Press 'was not appropriate.'"
AP, 7 Dec 2012: "New Yorkers do care: A fellow rider helped a man who wound up on the subway tracks. It occurred days after another man was pushed to his death in front of an oncoming train. No one seemingly came to his aid. Voice of America journalist Margaret Besheer says it happened Thursday night at Bowling Green station in Lower Manhattan. She saw a disoriented man sitting between the rails. People on the platform were screaming 'a train is coming!' Next, she saw another man on the tracks helping the victim to his feet."
