KPFK Updating: a coup? or failure? or.... (tags)
KPFK may be the vital part of Pacifica's failure and the maybe sell-off to privatize a take-over... or only a part of Pacifica's failures in administrative management, or any competent oversight, or their following CA state required audits and elections, and honest business practices, accounting, and many more lapses...that have already occurred. Updating some info for what is barely revealed to paid-up KPFK stakeholders.
KPFK hosted PACIFICA's board in LA. Missed it? here's some for ya (tags)
More on PACIFICA FORUM in LA june 2015 - as observed and noted. Many KPFK public members - and staff - and programmers came for their brief 2-min comment to the 'parent' company- Pacifica PNB members present, The PNB spoke for hours disputing, conflicting, discussing and also shouting to each other - while the larger-size audience sat way in back behind their circle.
The Pacifica Radio Network and "local control" (tags)
SaveKPFA are the majority caucus on the elected KPFA Local Station Board (LSB). Their delegates to the Pacifica National Board (PNB) are also in the majority there. "Local control" has always been a main plank of their platform, but in February, the PNB cast a vote that seemed to institutionalize the exact opposite.

Videotaping KPFK's LSB meetings (tags)
KPFK's Local Station Board June 2011 meeting was very well conducted and chaired. At least two video-graphers were there and never shared why they were documenting the event nor how anyone could access their videos. This disturbs some of us who are "public members" supporters of the radio station and not content to stay "quiet" and docile either.

KPFA Workers & Community Speak Up, Manager "Resigns": Politics of Latest Management Change (tags)
The departure of KPFA General Manager Lemlem Rijio was an open secret debated prior to the public announcement and a News commentary on her "resignation." A group of staff and supporters had campaigned to reverse the Local Station Board's supposed termination vote in a confidential executive session. Their talking points are summarized and addressed here. Other KPFA workers and community members stated that removing the GM was necessary to correct the station's deteriorating finances and declining listener support, to restore democratic process and respect for Pacifica's bylaws and mission. Under the Rijio-Lilley regime the gains of the Free Pacifica movement and democratic institutions at KPFA were obstructed, subverted or shut down.
KPFA Manager "Resigns" (tags)
KPFA's General Manager was forced to resign by the LSB amd PNB, but the anti-democratic faction she represented protested, putting out much misinformation about the termination and her performance as GM, even compromising the integrity of the KPFA news to present their one sided spin.
Mayor Villaraigosa accepts bribes for jobs (tags)
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appointed Ed Boks as the Director of Animal Services even though Boks had been fired from his two previous jobs for poor performance. After many, many mistakes and costly lawsuits the Mayor continued to stand by his appointment. Ultimately City Council made a motion of "no confidence" in Ed Boks' leadership in 2009 and demanded that he be fired. Finally Boks was forced to resign. Why did the Mayor appoint Ed Boks, a man with no college education and a bad track record? It seems a local billionaire offered Villaraigosa $10,000,000 if he would hire Boks, and the Mayor accepted.

SNWA's 300 Mile Pipeline to Las Vegas Faces Growing Opposition (tags)
At a recent SNWA board meeting, the SNWA's proposed 300 mile pipeline from Snake Valley aquifer to Las Vegas has met with a few bumps in the road, mainly strong public opposition and increasing hesitancy on the part of SNWA board members to jump into this plan without a safety net. Though the SNWA board voted to continue seeking an EIS for the pipeline, the reality of future costs and risks of an overdrawn aquifer made several board members question their previous zealotry in following Gen. Manager Pat Mulroy down her pipeline's path for much longer.

How To Rig a KPFK Election (tags)
"It now seems likely that the Committee, with anonymous financial backing, negotiated with election officials to delay the date for mailing ballots to coordinate with the mailing of their $6-$7,000 mailer promoting their slate of candidates. Meanwhile, unfinanced independent candidates began their campaign on schedule, unaware of the backroom maneuverings."

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa closes City animal shelters (tags)
In astounding news earlier this week the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services announced that they are basically closing the shelter doors to owner relinquished animals. Their rationale behind this move as per Ed Boks the General Manager is to "fine tune" "the population during the annual spring/summer crush of neonatal turn-ins." Read that, "we have no more room because we've been warehousing animals all year to keep our euthanasia rate artificially low to try to make me look good."
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa doesn't keep campaign promise to animals (tags)
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa promised to make LA a NoKill City. He hired Ed Boks as the new General Manager. In his first year Boks has failed to reduce the euthanasia rate. Fewer animals made it out alive, fewer were adopted. What went wrong? And what is the Mayor going to do about it?
Pacifica Radio--the old regime's legacy at KPFA (tags)
The slow motion takeover of KPFA began in 1992 and reached its climax in 1999. During those years, the highjackers recruited assistants, trained proteges and created a culture which permeates the station to this day. It's the background of today's ongoing struggle at KPFA's Local Station Board (LSB).

Race and National Origin at Pacifica Why You Should Care (tags)
Turn on your radio. Spin the dial. Companies like clear channel and Cox own well in excess of 3000 broadcast outlets. That's how most of us get our information. Pacifica exists to counter that. It has only 5 stations, but in major cities, With $400,000,000 in assests and 16 million in yearly budget the foundation is the single most valuable asset of the left. Under one vision it would move to the right, under another it would recruit activists to actually create media.
A Network At War (tags)
Since ostensiblly winning a campaign to recapture the small progressive Pacifica network that spanned years, involving at one time three seperate lawsuits, and 10's of thousands of its active listerners, the tiny network is once again at war with itself.....Having, along with senior producer Ryme Kakthouda, joined in filing complaints of discrimination on basis of national origin and ethnicity at the last meeting of our national board in NYC, (http://dc.indymedia.org/newswire/display/120524/index.php) and with women angry about sexism, and the networks failure to do anything more than deny its existence, planning an actual march on Berkley to file similar complaints next month, all matters likely to head into litigation within a matter of weeks now, this seemed like a good time to carve up all the sacred cows.

HOW KPFT STEALS MONEY (tags)
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.

The most censored and ignored story of the last - and the next - five years must be: "Global Economy Caters to US Addictions."

Include all of the legal drugs that US citizens are addicted to and "Drugs" would be the largest sector by far.

"A Liar...A Cheater...Physically Abusive" (tags)
Many tried to warn Pacifica about KPFK's new General Manager, Eva Georgia, but nobody listened. The Pacifica Radio Network, with five stations and numerous affiliates, has seen enough trouble over the last three years. It was left with a $4.8 million debt and in a state of organizational chaos by a corrupt board of directors that was mercifully removed last December by a determined army of reformers and four lawsuits.
Outwardly Progressive, Internally Corporate: Pacifica's Next Challenge (tags)
Internal problems at Pacifica stations still plague the network. While the major battle at Pacifica was won early this year, the war against a corporate style hierarchy is not over. It was this very hierarchy which enabled the General Managers to abuse their power within the stations in the first place. In order for meaningful change to occur, this structure should change, not just the personalities. Please see attached open letter by KPFK staff, highlighting problems and suggesting some solutions. (To add your name in solidarity, see directions below.)
