Radio Free Asia

Description

From Wikipedia: Radio Free Asia is a United States government–funded, nonprofit international broadcasting corporation that broadcasts and publishes online news, information and commentary to readers and listeners in East Asia. Its self-stated mission is "to provide accurate and timely news and information to Asian countries whose governments prohibit access to a free press."

Based on Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, it was established in the 1990s with the aim of promoting democratic values and human rights, and diminishing Communist Party of China control. It is funded by a grant from the U.S. Agency for Global Media (formerly the "Broadcasting Board of Governors"), an independent agency of the United States government. In 2017, RFA and other networks, such as Voice of America, were put under the newly created US Agency for Global Media, an independent federal agency. RFA is the only station outside China that broadcasts in the Uygur-language. It has been recognized for played a vital role in exposing Xinjiang re-education camps. The New York Times regards RFA as one of the few reliable sources of information about Xinjiang.
