Chief Deputy Craig Wilson of the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office has been appointed to the new editorial board of the Santa Cruz Sentinel. The process was initiated by the Sentinel's new managing editor, Kara Meyberg Guzman. The appointment raises serious questions concerning the Sentinel's journalistic independence, and the news organization's ability in the future to adequately respond editorially to issues of police brutality and brutality within the Santa Cruz jail system. Wilson overs...

text Deliberate Dysfunction? KPFA's Decade of Financial Mismanagement by by Daniel Borgström and Steve Gilmartin
And now today in 2018, the SK are openly calling for bankruptcy! What a coincidence! Who would've ever guessed! Now let's look at SK tactics, strategy. I mentioned the September 2005 minority report by Max Blanchet, the warning about excessive spending. Also in the same month of that same year, an email from Brian Edwards-Tiekert of SK was leaked; in it Brian had written to his group, "How do we make our enemies own the problems that are to come?" and that has been SK strategy all these ...

audio Pacifica National Board Overturns Rigged KPFA PNB Election & Slaps Down "Save KPFA" &"UCR" (audio/x-wav 78.6mb) by Repost
The Pacifica National Board on 1/11/18 voted to overturn a rigged manipulated vote for a new LSB board member and for a new PNB member. The "Save KPFA" "United For Community Radio" grouping were pushing for an immediate bankruptcy and illegally manipulated the vote to put up a fake candidate "Save KPFA" supporter and lawyer Bill Campisi to manipulate the election so they could elect their chosen candidate Susan da Silva. It all backfired in the PNB vote....

KPFA LSB member and lawyer Bill Campini has resigned and then tried to withdraw his resignations to get a new person elected to the Pacifica National Board. Both "Save KPFA" and "United For Community Radio" have united for this trickery and push for Pacifica to go into bankruptcy so a judge will likely decide how to sell off parts of Pacifica including WBAI in New York. They also have conspired to have KPFA sue Pacifica to break it up although this violates the responsibility of LSB members....

Pacifica should make every effort to remain independent and not be eager to throw up its member-purchased assets for grabs, at the discretion of the federal government and a creditors committee headed by an aggressive capitalist real estate speculator and billionaire. That’s a bad place to be. It would make Lew Hill cringe....
