How confusing !!!!
How does a website [ Counterpunch or Pacifica too ] provide information that remains erroneous and is read and resposted and then can never be corrected everywhere else… as the info has been used, repeated, misunderstood and there has been no corrections ? huh ?
Is a comment from www.anngarrison.com/ saying that the PNB vote On Phone to ‘fire’ Executive Director Summer Reese was 11 to ‘fire’ and “7” opposed? That does not add up to the 22 Pacifica board members many assumed were telephone-at-least-present to vote on such an important issue.
And no names were noted anywhere - to reveal who is choosing to do what to Pacifica ?
How do we know if how many were our KPFK PNB members ? And how did they vote to agree to firing ED or disagreeing ?
or which other station members voted how and why ?
Can there honestly in anonymous voting - - which means no responsibility for anyone saying whatever ? huh ? Can such a delicate and vital issue as firing or not of the top position person be left as no-one-known-or-counted-by-name ? Is this possible? How ?
Are there no records or accountability ? - so the secret-ballots are the way to pretend rational neutrality when other intentions are at play? huh?
what a way to steal elections, anyone's, here or in Ukraine, Iraq, India, Pacifica, or USA government- anywhere else too ?
Those on PNB = Pacifica nat'l Bd = who took-counted votes, or recorded the votes, or even those who actually were present and voted on phone, they must know who spoke up and who said what, no ?
And there are no public records available ?
Or no one is saying anything but hiding behind secret collusions ?
or what ?
Did not the PNB members not hear each other on the phone nor name themselves while voting ?
was it a secret voice vote ?
Was that a legally binding voting ?
Did it confirm to Pacifica's bylaws [own self rules made by themselves for themselves] ?
What the everF is going on if this is how Pacifica has been claiming to [dysfunctionally] work at all ? Or who is pretending to be 'working' on behalf of all who pay for it's upkeep, all the while instead fiddling and making Pacifica burn ....down....down...down...
Has this same process and procedure been going on before too, in the same ways ?
A USA public non profit corporation acting as if it were a private fiefdom with anything-we-want-goes ?
Is this a business we want to ever again send $$$money to or free work volunteer for, ever again ? How or Who has the power to change or shift HOW voting occurs, if not by the bylaws already written and in place ?
We are confused, and not just in LA.
down down down dump…and, oh yeah, also drop 'hope', because that is just a wish and dream. Reality has just appeared !
Apparently, only legal court proceedings can rectify and clarify what is and must be happening in our NON PROFIT CORPORATION called Pacifica Fdtn - which is not acting businesslike nor is being held accountable for the ways that PNB board members proceed ... or how some attempt to take full charge and all authority.
If this is how Pacifica and all whom we have assumed, erroneously, are trustworthy organizations operate, then who can be believed ? ever ?

I just came across this and thanks to the poster for sharing my work. I just wish it were a little more clear that I did not write the opening summary, because at first I read that and thought, "Huh? I didn't write this."
There's also one error that this is reminding me to ask Counterpunch to correct. The vote was actually 11 to 7 because of low PNB attendance, lack of notice that Summer Reese's employment would be put to a vote, and several Board members leaving the meeting in outrage. I believe that one of the WBAI members also had to leave before the meeting ended,near midnight, because of ill health. www.anngarrison.com/"
