KPFK Does it Again!
After a long fight between factions at Pacifica radio, Mike Ruppert was on KPFK's The Morning Show on Thursday, 6-13-02.
Unfortunately, KPFK reverted to its old behavior, sandbagged Ruppert, and devoted approximately 1/3rd of the show distracting Pacifica's listeners from hearing the truth about U.S. government involvement in 9-11.
Sonali Kolhatkar, host of The Morning Show, opened the segment seeming to give Ruppert a free hand in putting out the information Pacifica's listeners have been denied. Kolhatkar asked a few somewhat interesting questions, but then a different agenda appeared. Kolhatkar asked Ruppert about his belief that U.S. government agencies were the perpetrators of 9-11. Ruppert calmly explained that he has never said or written that the any government agency was the overt force committing the 9-11 atrocities, and that what he has been discussing is the government's foreknowledge of the events and cover-up of that foreknowledge afterwards.
Kolhatkar went on with the interview, but at three additional points asked Ruppert the exact same question about evidence the U.S. government organized and committed the 9-11 attacks, something Ruppert has never said or published. It was obvious Ruppert had been set-up. Then, 20 minutes into the show, Pacifica showed its disdain for its listeners, and what their true agenda is. And their agenda is apparently not the dissemination of information.
When she opened the show Kolhatkar discussed the controversy that Ruppert's work has created in the mainstream press, and mentioned, specifically, David Corn, Washington Editor of The Nation. She said that Corn had been invited to appear on the show but had declined. This on-air statement is a direct contradiction of what Kolhatkar had told the FTW office. In arranging the interview FTW office manager Andrea Shepherd was told, by Kolhatkar, that Ruppert would be on for the entire 8:00
