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

I have to sit out some of the info-war at this point, having tried to provide clarity in the face of propaganda for many years and needing a rest. I will say the statement in this article that the reasons for the crisis have "nothing to do with KPFA" is wrong and is a prime example of the kind of purposefully slanted propaganda that have actively helped to cause this crisis. KPFA has not lived within its own means for years, and as this crisis worsens, there is unfortunately every reason to think that those who actively discouraged listeners from understanding the true issues at the station for years will now have free reign (as they certainly do have their own organized backers, broken away from the network) to continue to bamboozle listeners who believe that Russia "hacked," that the U.S. isn't massively responsible for the middle east disasters (and hence for much of global climate damage) etc. Of course the partisan boards are terrible, but there has been, thanks to the confusion of the name-usurping "save kpfa" gang, no way for most listeners to have heard about the different points of view or real issues over the years to vote in responsible board members. Every board election has been actively "hacked" if you want to call it that, and that is some real hacking you are not going to hear about by the paid morning gang at KPFA. Sure they will titrate in some well-presented stories, and therefore the promotion of their not-too-left of the conservative wing of the Democratic Party point of view will thrive i the new non-Pacifica KPFA.
