Why is LILA Garret, PKFK programmer, being so maligned on Indymedia??

by sidestepper Wednesday, Jul. 02, 2008 at 3:35 PM

Is it not ok to be jewish and be programmer on KPFK? Or to admit this openly ? Or is it the older-strong-willed-woman opposition being played out again ? Could be called the Hillary-syndrome, but Lila may be for Obama instead ? So why is she hated so loudly here?

Has anyone noticed that two people are constantly maligned on these Indymedia pages? Why only them ?

How about all the others....the hypocrites who say one thing and do another...or the ones that outright lie and smile but stab you in the back in person or by gossiping...and these are KPFK people, many volunteers in fact, volunteering to help the station but then also acting-out-their-personal-stuff....

But this is the second long assessment of Lila Garret by one who may not be qualified to diagnose or have access to all the facts, tand who takes Lila to task for whatever she did or did not do well enough....

how about all the Grace Aaron's slaters?

how about those who made such gross errors in the election assignments [Peters is his name ?] and never even made an open apology to the KPFK public == where we could alllll see it...

like here on Open Indy Media site ?

What about all the programmers that are on-air in-fighting factions and claiming the station is being overrun by those others who are ....whatever 7 ugly words they chose to use....

What about prog;rammers who are so slanted towards one local region of what is called the middle-east - or called "asia" by others in that region - that they decry and demean any other regions and governments?

Biases broadcast galore...but who is complaining loudly here about them ? or that this alliance with one nation is above and beyond all reason, but any other is treason....lauding only Palestine while 'hating' the other nation states ?

and why is a person who has admitted to be a jew, and not been ashamed or afraid to say this, being the one who is again, as above, seen and stated as Bad Bad Bad....when so many others do so much that is worse...

anyone complain loudly about Lisa Garr [is she jewish too or not ? who knows ? ] who runs infomercials and commercials on what is called free to give promotions to people who make lots of money and get fame from her sponsorship on KPFK programs !!!

Why not talk & write about her antics here ?

and what about Jerry Quickly who is so pro the black set that he sounds as racist as anyone, if they too dared to say such things about any other 'group' or color...did no one notice his constant defense of all that is "african-american" [ and that does not mean african, actually ] and yet how mixed is this african with european, indian, and other groups [called races], if one asks about his heritage as well ? ...only 1/32nd is enough to qualify ? or how black is black. ? bad one talks in a slang that only others of that genre understand is the qualifications ? huh?]

Why does no one complain about his sending off listeners to other stations because of his angry black man rantings on air ? How discriminatory is he ? very.

And more? there are many programmers, who should be questioned as to the benefits they get from their promoting and sponsoring people, and what kickback or benefits they accrue from their putting those programs on air ? They too need to be questined & described & diagnosed here.

and as for a few staff, since most are actually overworked and too dedicatd for their own good - - so to complain about them requires some actual act like a fact, not just an attitude problem. Some need improvement for sure, but as a group, they seem to 'pass' on the needing to be put-down or maligned group.

Again, why this one older woman called Lila? For her age? For her programming ? for her religion or culture or race? for being an older strong woman ? not ok huh ? or for her bad bad bad attitude, that is worse than anyone else at KPFK ? huh ?

clarify please. Not rehash the same old stories that may or Not be based on facts and reality. Check it out for real. Do a honest fact-check, not hearsay, not rewrite, not anyone-can-say-anything-here kind of writing that we do on Indy.

Lets get more real here and say what we want improved,

state facts

and how things need to different and what is not-ok because we know first hand [no more handed down stories & gossip] to have happened or heard what was said,

and know we are telling the truth, as best we really know it.

Let's get real, now.

for KPFK's sake.

and for ours.
