The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was ordered in April not to cooperate with the Voice of America because the White House claimed the government-funded news service was disseminating Chinese "propaganda," according to an email unearthed by a watchdog organization.

The bizarre White House attack on the federally funded VOA said "much of the U.S. media takes its lead from China." The broadside was so odd that many initially thought hackers had posted it on the White House website, The New York Times reported.

The Voice of America's director on Sunday angrily responded to the CDC, calling the freeze on its reporters "shocking" and "troubling" and comparing the action to authoritarian nations without a free press — like China.
