KPFA's Mitch Does Damage Control For Margy Wilkinson, "Save KPFA" and Bernard Duncan On 65

Mitch Jeserich who does Letters and Politics on KPFA and other Pacifica stations put on the new Margy Wilkinson appointed IED Bernard Duncan from KFPK on his show and then refused to discuss or even raise the issues of financial malfeasance and incompetence by the KPFA Business Manager and others at the Pacifica Foundation. Apparently Mitch wants to use his show to put on those people supporting Margy Wilkinson and the law firm of Dan Siegel while ignoring the systemic financial crisis and cover-up. So much for an honest hour "in the big tent" with Mitch.

Mitch, I liked your

Mitch, I liked your description of Pacifica . . . "a big tent, which attracts a lot of people who might otherwise be pushed to the margins of the mainstream . . . which makes it wonderful, special, eccentric, peculiar. It also presents challenges. . . "
I also thought your description of the disagreement now headed for court was evenhanded.
However, I thought it became far less evenhanded when you invited Bernard Duncan but not Summer Reese on. And then described the station over there functioning despite the alternate universe next door, which seemed to imply that none of the programmers still doing their best side with Summer and the Board minority.. On the contrary, many programmers support both, including Anthony Fest, Steve Zeltzer, Adrienne Lauby, Dennis Bernstein, Bonnie Faulkner, Yarrow Sweningsen, Caroline Casey, Janet Coleman (WBAI programmer), Betty Arcos (KPFK Music Programmer), Kojo Sargent (WBAI staff), more programmers from the other four stations, and myself. We have all signed the Statement of Pacifica’s Local Station Board Members, Staff and Listeners, http://2014.supportkpfa.org/?p=91.

Margy Wilkinson, a supporter of "Save KPFA" and Oakland City Mayoral Candidate Dan Siegel put in Bernard Duncan as IED. She now resides at the former interim program directors office at KPFA.

Mitch's program is just one more example of how Margy's allies programs have been used to present their side of the issues, never allowing the opposing side to be heard. This is totally sectarian and contrary to the reason for Pacifica to exist. This has happened over and over, sometimes even on the news.
