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 ...

text What The Dickens Is Going On? (Some Slightly More Accurate Info on KPFA/Pacifica) by Tracy Rosenberg
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.
