I guess compared to their nemesis Haliburton, KPFT are just small time crooks. This is how the scheme works. KPFT radio and Pacifica radio network use deceptive advertising and a confidential donor list to create symbiotic business relationships, like Jay Lee, his employer, and Microsoft. They do and do not accept contributions from for-profit entities.
Jay Lee is one of the hosts of Technology Bytes, a program broadcast by KPFT.
If you employ some one, they will allow you to match the funds that your employee gives to the station. A contradiction in advertising, because KPFT works diligently to promote themselves as a radio broadcaster that gets most of their money from listener sponsors. KPFT management contends that they don't have to tell the public who gave them how much money and for what.
I must assume that the employer and the employee can both enjoy a tax deduction.
On top of that they get two hours of free radio advertising a week promoting the goods and services they make money on every day. In an area like Houston, 2 hours of radio advertising is worth a bundle. Jay Lee's employer might as well pay him for his volunteer work at the station.
And now the icing on the cake. Jay Lee, his employer, and other anonymous persons get to invest in common stock if they want to. They can say GOOGLE search 40 times a month without sounding very repetitious just on that one show.
Yesterday, Jay Lee claimed that he and his panel of GEEKS make no money whatsoever by broadcasting the show. Not from my perspective.
Apparently this has been going on for nine years. I only discovered it about 3 years ago. I assumed the donar list was a matter of public information until recently. If it was, then KPFT could easily discredit any accusation of this sort by allowing the list of donars to be inspected and scrutinized. Each major donor, especially the ones that donate to the Tech Bytes show, could have their finances scrutinized to assure the public that KPFT was acting in good faith.
They can't do it. They probably don't have the records or they just destroyed them.
KPFT also makes many deceptive claims indicating that the evil right wing would like to silence them forever, thereby attempting to legitimize secret activities. It seems to me that if the right wing really wanted to play hard ball with KPFT, the radio station would already be out of business and the board members in jail. KPFT virtually has their pants pulled down and asking for the right wing to screw them anally.
KPFT is very critical of the government and others for covert activities.
Like every one else in the mass media business, they only criticize who they want to, like the FCC.
The FCC has some regulatory authority over fraudsters who pose as community radio stations to line their own pockets.
KPFT has other symbiotic business relationships, but they all concern the liberal arts, or sports. These activities are allowed to be promoted by KPFT based on their citizens agreements. As a charity broadcaster, this is the only thing KPFT is allowed to promote commercially and within certain restrictions.
Technology Bytes does not concern liberal arts or industrial arts. They simply advocate consumerism in the computer and software business, offer software support, fraudware, advertise products and services, and generally economically benefit from every aspect of the show.
Over the last few years, PR confidence men, like Jay Lee and Duane Bradley, have taken the public for about 4 million dollars.
The last time I questioned Duane Bradley, General Manager, about the show, he said it was funny. According to Duane Bradley and other paid staff members of KPFT, all programing decisions are made by Otis Mclay.
Also over the last few years, Microsoft, Jay Lee, and KPFT, have been stealing more intellectual property, mostly from the GNU project, from me, and any one else who tries to compete with the Microsoft cartel.
Jay Lee keeps stealing my ideas about how to make the show legal and incorporating them without giving me the credit for it.
I published this computer science fact. The only way to fix the many problems associated with Windows is to make the software more like Linux. They published Windows XP. Some of the best features seem to have been purchased, or stolen from the KDE project. Who knows?
Based on the science of mathematics, there are only one or two good ways to do anything with a computer. Everything else in the programming code is decorations, buttons, wallpaper and stuff like that. This makes the MICROSOFT END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT very impractical.
KPFT would violate the MICROSOFT END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT every time they broadcast the program called TECHNOLOGY BYTES based on the thou shalt not reverse engineer the software clause, if they ever provided a realistic explanation of a computer problem. Instead they just repeat industrial propaganda.
None of these organizations are innocent until proven guilty. Only people are innocent until proven guilty. That is the intent of the law, no matter how it gets defined.
KPFT has suckered me out of some money in the past, but from now on, I am going to be a non paying member of their organization. They need one.
As a matter of fact, if KPFT doesn't want to make the donor list public information they might as well get out there checkbook and start paying me for the damages they did and give back the money I donated.
That comes out to about 0,000 dollars.
KPFT does not own a radio transmitter. The charitable organization that operates the broadcasting license known as KPFT does not own the broadcasting license as far as I know.
It is accurate to say that KPFT is a charity that primarily benefits a rather small group of activists that control every aspect of the radio station and constantly bicker over governance.
They may as well put up one of those old familiar signs on the front of the radio station saying MICROSOFT CERTIFIED BUSINESS PARTNER.
If this group of unprofessional confidence schemers applies for a broadcasting license in your neighborhood, my advice is to petition against it.
They provide no information or music that cannot be suppllied by some one else.
