Nguyen Phu Trong, predator of press freedom in Vietnam


General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam
Innermost thoughts of Nguyen Phu Trong:
“I am very familiar with the media and journalism since I myself worked as a journalist between 1967 and 1996, and then served as the editor of Tap Chi Cong San (Communist Review), the Communist Party’s theoretical journal. It is not the function of the media to carry out propaganda against the state. Journalists must only report factual information and should not make comments promoting a multiparty system in their editorials or online. Foreign media organizations such as Radio Free Asia, VOA or the BBC are quick to
broadcast such comments to our citizens in the guise of “independent” news and information that does not meet with our approval
