Participants in the Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program discuss VOA at Kent State University. "An area of main concern to the international visitors was Voice of America, an international broadcast funded by the U.S. government. (Professor Tim) Smith said even though the broadcast is created for international people, Americans rarely investigate what their government is saying about them and their country. 'I think in terms of accountability, it may be worse that Americans don't have access to what the government is telling the outside world about their country,' said Barisoth Sek, director of Anti-Corruption Coordinated Action Program in Cambodia."
