Before the interview, VOA announced on its Chinese-language website that Guo would reveal “nuclear-grade” information in the planned three-hour interview, which was to be broadcast live during one of its regular TV programs and continued on social media.
Chinese officials had contacted VOA journalists expressing concern over the interview and urged it to be canceled.
VOA management decided to proceed with the live interview, broadcasting one hour live and then taping the rest and publishing additional reporting on the interview afterward, VOA spokeswoman Bridget Serchak said.
“We had multiple plans to conduct additional interviews with the subject for social media and late yesterday [Tuesday] made the editorial decision to record this material, edit and post it in the coming days,” Serchak said.
“In a miscommunication, the stream was allowed to continue beyond the first hour. When this was noticed, the feed was terminated. We will release content from these interviews and will continue to report on corruption issues,” she said.
