      journalist's job and duty are reporting as things are, not pick and choose. Henock of VOA is biased and not truthful in his reporting

      I would recommend the VOA heads to evaluate the contents of all stories that has been reported by this opportunist journalist Henok. I said this because it has been so long time since I stopped listening VOA just because I am tired of this guys reports.
