KPFA Interim Manager Ahmad Anderson Allows CL Old Guard To Run Rampant At Station
The new interim manager brought in to run KPFA by Pacifica Executive Director Arlene Engelhardt has allowed the CL supporter to run roughshod at the station. The old management group is still running the station despite the "new faces" at the top.
SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FUTURE DIRECTION OF KPFA: AN INVITATION
We have had enough. We can no longer be silent about, or allow ourselves to be identified in anyway, with the rampant corruption that now lives inside KPFA. The old manager is gone, but the people who used her as a human shield, to get everything they wanted, including getting rid of Flashpoints, and divvying up its budget, are still inside and still calling the shots. (Why do you suppose these KPFA insiders apparently fought harder to have the former manager returned to power, than for union workers, like Nora Barrow Friedman, who were slashed and burned in full violation of the union contract.) Vigilantism rules inside kpfa. We have already seen too many of our trusted colleagues and friends, scapegoated, degraded and demonized on a daily basis, by a bevy of conniving dissemblers, who will do anything, and say anything to flatten their opposition and sustain their power and control of KPFA. Now the vigilantes have run Nora Barrows Friedman out of the station, and I assure you, if they have their way—and they always do—Flashpoints will disappear altogether, and soon! We are calling for a series of KPFA town meetings, in which we really open the doors of the station to the community and to the listeners, in order to listen to, and hear what they have to say about what’s working and what’s not at LISTENER-SPONSERED KPFA. We call out to the board, programmers, and listeners, to help us make this happen: It is time once again to welcome and utilize the advice and deep imput of the true stewards of Pacifica and KPFA, the people!!
