Re: “KPFA Radio Meltdown

As a longtime listener of KPFA, I'm sad to see this wonderful station's financial woes aggravate its institutional issues. But that's the reality we face. Personally, I can't help but see this as a result of the station disbanding its Program Council. Once that happened, I guess it was only a matter of time before station programming was described using the type of management double-speak and misinformation that fills this commentary. One stands out above all the others. What this commentary calls "Some additional trimming to make the cost of each program commensurate with its income" is a euphemism for what's worrying the Flashpoints community. 50% of a show's budget is not a trim. Furthermore, funding programs proportionally to their income makes no sense if one's goal is quality news programming. For starters, it's common knowledge that investigative programming costs more than non-investigative programs. While the community can not expect KPFA to ignore its operating costs, neither should KPFA's management expect the community to ignore its need for quality programming. And if management is incapable of doing this, it's time to create a new Program Council.
