Marc Cooper's Attacks Amy Goodman With Graphic Language on KPFK Message Board

by KPFK Listener Saturday, Nov. 17, 2001 at 2:39 AM

Marc Cooper Has Become a Frequent Contributor to an Electronic Message Board for KPFK Discussion. He uses grapic language and personal insults to lowere the level of discourse, then complains that the board is irrelevant.

What is it with this guy? I wonder why he seems compelled to use such vulgar language and to insult KPFK listeners who are attempting to enter into a discussion about the problems facing Pacifica and KPFK? Examples follow:

1st one from Monday, then one from which the obscenities at the end were deleted by the moderator:

You are so off track it is hilarious. and you betray your complete and utter ignorance of the history of KPFK. During the impeachment period throughout 1998 and into early 1999, I was relentless in my bashing of Clinton and in fact supported his impeachment. I did at least 3 shows a week on the issue and it generated tons of hate mail from whimpering liberals and lefties who accused me of being a Republican. Ask anyone who didnt have their head up their ass during that time and they will tell you that 4PM on KPFK was The Place to listen to the Anti-Clitnon festival. My most regular guess was Pat Caddell and we spent about 90% of our time squeezing the Liberals who crawled up CLinton's ass. What you also dont know is that it was not me, not KPFK, that was sucking off Clitnon at that time, but none other than your revered Amy Goodman. During the impeachment hearings Democracy Now became little more than a crass DNC echo chamber lambasting unilaterally the GOP and Ken Starr and giving Bib Bill a pass, it was a bit staggering. So, this will indeed be the last time I communicate with you, William. You live in a different world than I dom fortunately. I gain nothing in knowledge or insight from communicating with you. And you bitch and carp and sling accusations without knowing even the most basic of facts-- your riff on the Clinton impeachment proved it. Ta Ta.

Fund Drive Analysis

Sat Nov 10 13:34:33 2001

Well, William, I did not write the message above as you suggest, btu I sure am happy to respond to it.. too much fun not to. Very funny that you should quote Roy Tuchman on this subject, so listen up. This fund drive raised the most amount of money from the most number of individual pledges, most of them small. The average pledge was something like -90.

There was one exception tot hsi during the fund drive.. and here comes the delightful part: It was Roy Tuchman! On two nights this past week, Roy offered an alternative medicine package for a minimum 0 pledge and he raised something like ,000 or more in the two nights. he amde no smaller pledge available. So, in fact, Roy is the only person on the station who did what he accused the rest of us doing.

The bulk of station money came from pledges taken during public affairs programming that featured the widest debate on war and peace ranging from Howard Zinn to Chalmers Johnson to Ben Barber, Ahmed Rashid, John Cooley and many many others. Some supported peace, some supported limited military action and Chris Hitchens wantes to "smah the taliban." Our listeners appreciated the debate and have enough self-confidence to make up their own minds as to what the "coorect" position is. To suggest that the programming was toalired to fit a liberal, or a welathy, or a pro-war constituency is simlly, a bald-faced lie.

As to Alex Baldwin, etc. You are free to live in any fantasy world that makes you comfortable. If it makes you feel better to think that I and others toady to wealthy liberals and that we water down our programming to please them, then don't let me get in the way of your self-gratification. If you think the Pacifica Foundation, which cant get it together to pay our trash collection bills, issues ideological edicsts and that journalists like I have so little ethic that we blindly follow those (non-existent) orders, then please feel free to believe that (along with the notion that the UN is conducting black helicopter flights).

I have made a veritable career of skewerling liberals, and the last time I ever uttered or wrote the words "Alex Baldwin" was to excoriate him in a column I wrote for the Wall Street Journal deriding him and other Democartic liberals fir supporting Clinton's attack on iIraq in the middle of the Lewinsky scandal. I owe no explanations or political apologies to you, William. Everything I think and feel is to be found amply in print with my signature on it. And anyone is free to interpret it anyway they please. I have been called many things, but you are among the very very few to suggest I am a toady to liberals-- but again, if that's what gets you of, then by all means, whack away. Just dont squirt in this direction, please.
