Re: “Breaking: Berkeley's KPFA Radio Facing Ruin as New York Real Estate Corporation Considers Seizing Station's Assets to Settle Lawsuit

Please give the following crazy proposal a few minutes to marinate before you reject it!

Why not expand the Pacifica listener/donor base by becoming the true 'Alternative Voice' for both the rational Left and the rational Right?

I believe that there are many people who think of themselves as libertarians, or some sort of conservative, who are not happy with the local radio equivalents of Fox News. Perhaps we all look alike to you, but we're not.

When I heard about Pacifica's problems, I had mixed feelings: one the one hand, from my point of view, you're political opponents. On the other hand, it's good that a democracy has vigorous debate hosted in multiple outlets ... so it wouldn't be good to see Pacifica, or any of its stations go under -- (and what irony that this was precipitated by Islamists).

So go on, Lefties ... think outside of the box! See what the folks at Reason Magazine, at American Conservative, at National Review would think about a joint venture. After all, liberals and conservatives united to defeat the Nazis ... so why not get together where we had a radio network that could broadcast intelligent interesting people who could make you think, regardless of your views?
