Oakland Local Website Suspends Publication, Perhaps Forever - by KQED
First, a word on Oakland Local and its refusal to stand strong for real change in Oakland. KQED article below. There was some interesting content on Oakland Local, some pushing for racial and economic equality in Oakland -- on safe, popular issues any liberal democrat in the city would support -- but most of it was a phony-seeming and apolitical boosterism for Oakland, paving the way for the current massive wave of gentrification. Oakland Local may not even realize that its overall message w...

LA Times goes to bat for killer cops in Salinas - by David Roknich, IndyRadio
"Velasco suffered bruises and may have a broken leg", (Salinas Police Chief) McMillin said at the very end of an report defending the latest police aggression against an already restrained subject. The media experts at Tribune Corporation know that few people read past the headline, and save the ghastly truth for the end. The truth is in the video just becoming viral, and the Salinas police are in urgent need of damage control. Who is investigating this Crime of State?

Dozens of listeners gathered in front of KPFA on May 16 to protest censorship of Gary Null's appearance on Guns-n-Butter and his DVD "Silent Epidemic - the Untold Story of Vaccines".

It was to be aired at a crucial time when sb277, forced vaccination bill, was moving through senate committees. It's hard to think that ...

Friends of Station 40 Press Conference, The Mission, SF - by hanna quevedo
Last week the collective received eviction court papers (an unlawful detainer) from landlords Ahuva, Emmanuel, and Barak Jolish. Although the Jolish family had previously stated its intentions to sell, they have refused a proposal presented by the Station 40 collective, SF Community Land Trust, and Mission Economic Development Agency to sell their property to the land trust, in what would be a win-win situation for the property owners, current tenants, and Mission community at large.

Dear FCC: Thanks for Listening to Team Internet - by via Electronic Frontier Foundation
Today the FCC voted three to two to reclassify broadband Internet access as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act, and forbear from the parts of the Act that aren’t necessary for net neutrality rules. This reclassification gives the FCC the authority to enact (and enforce) narrow, clear rules which will help keep the Internet the open platform it is today.

Santa Cruz Patch Blunders On: Misreports 'Santa Cruz Wildfire' - by Ted Smith
In a factual error even worse than those prevailing when Brad Kava was its editor, the online news website Santa Cruz Patch published an article on February 11 at 1:27 p.m. with the headline "Santa Cruz Wildfire Destroys 40 Homes". No such fire occurred in Santa Cruz, and at the time of publishing this report, the false information still has not been removed from the Santa Cruz Patch website.
