Re: “Cuts and Dueling Protests at KPFA

After speaking with Tracy, I found her viewpoint both entrenched and not open to reason. While I don't know all the inner workings of the controversy, I do feel that Pacifica National Board is not handling the issue well, violating the union contracts in order to target specific people. Furthermore, executives at Pacifica make too much money relative to the other workers at member stations.
Personally, I'd like to see Pacifica, KPFA (and KPFK & others) follow the 12 Step model where all groups are autonomous and self-managing, and stations can use Pacifica to acquire excellent programming (Democracy Now, etc) without compromising the local control.
Pacifica has made many mistakes in dealing with shows, and IMO this is yet another massive screw up.
However, when the exec dir at Pacifica kept saying "this is not good radio" while going on the air for laying off the Morning Show, I had to disagree. Transparency in business dealings plus fighting with insensitive managers is perhaps some of *the best* radio I have heard on the air -- period.
Much love to KPFA staff!
