IMC resoloution regarding KPFK

by IMC Monday, Aug. 14, 2000 at 8:37 AM

The IMC resoloution re: censorship and more at the los angeles Pacifica station: KPFK



Here are the 2 Resolutions which IMC-LA (Independent Media Center) has

passed re Pacifica:

RESOLUTION

IMC -- Independent Media Center

Relationship with KPFK



Whereas KPFK Los Angeles is a community radio station whose mission

commits

it to community involvement, free speech and an airing of a broad spectrum

of opinion

And

Whereas the station, along with management of the Pacifica network has

strayed far from that mission by:

O Practicing Censorship

O Exercising Autocratic Managerial Control

O Demonstrating a lack of accountability to the community

O Attempting to coerce programmers to sign the "Y2k Compliant" Agreement

that makes all volunteer work the property of the station

O Dismantling its training program that provided access to radio skills

for

women and people of color.

O Practicing union busting.

Therefore, be it resolved that we, of the IMC LA, condemn the above

regressive policies and practices that are antithetical to Pacifica's own

mission statement. We demand that KPFK recommit itself to its own mission

statement to become a truly independent, alternative media outlet

accessible to all communities in Los Angeles.

Be it further resolved that the IMC-LA will not share space, equipment,

programming, analysts or recorded sound unless and until KPFK

A. Renounces the gag rule.

B. The station establishes mechanisms for meaningful participation of

stakeholders (subscribers, volunteers, etc.) in decision-making

processes.

C. Agrees to cease retaliation against staff and volunteer who speak out

on

aspects of the current crisis

D. Withdraw its demand that all volunteer work produced at the station

become the sole property of KPFK, as specified in the Y2K Compliant

Agreement.

This is not to be interpreted to mean that KPFK volunteers cannot

participate in the IMC.



RESOLUTION

IMC (Independent Media Center)

Denies Press Credentials To

Pacifica Network News (PNN) Reporters and Staff



The consensus of IMC members is that the IMC will not credential PNN

reporters nor freelance reporters nor any person who attempts to file for

PNN, nor give interviews to PNN, nor allow PNN to use material created by

the IMC.

The "reassignment" of PNN News Director Dan Coughlin has caused much

controversy. PNN has compromised its journalistic integrity by acts of

censorship. There is an ongoing strike by Pacifica stringers and

freelancers, and we need to be in solidarity with them.

Since the crisis last spring, when armed guards were called in to lock out

staff at KPFA, Pacifica reporters say management has subjected

journalists,

contributors and independent producers to repeated acts of alteration,

suppression and censorship of news stories and public-affairs programming,

which they say are of vital interest to the listeners of Pacifica and the

broader communities it serves.

Furthermore, since the IMC strives to combat censorship and corporate

control of the media, and Pacifica management has failed to address our

concerns regarding these issues, there are some who consider contributing

to Pacifica Network News in any way to be incompatible with their

journalistic ethos.

The Pacifica stringers strike has received endorsements from the

"Democracy

Now" AFTRA Bargaining Unit (David Love), Aileen Alfandary (KPFA News

Co-Director), WBAI/UE Local 404, Pacifica Affiliates KCSB (which has

suspended PNN broadcasts) and KFCF, L.A. County Federation of Labor, Noam

Chomsky, Ben Bagdikian, Medea Benjamin, Michael Parenti, Alice Walker,

Mike

Davis, Barbara Ehrenreich, Norm Solomon, Daniel Ellsberg, and over 100

other scholars, academics and organizations.
