Or why are those infernal "funding begging sessions" frequent, lengthy, and repetitive, and alienating those who are already donors repeated...continually ?
What else is needed at KPFK that is not presently there now ?
[we thank the cartoonist too] intelligence is not just wearing a sticker that they "voted" or "paid as KPFK sponsor" either. Intelligence is not having the same "poor us", "pay us", "give more" on-air begging continue...as if there were better ...what ? KPFK management? policies? audits and accounting ? programming ? unbiased viewpoints? or what ? what ?
Sometimes some of us, ordinary folk, KPFK listener-sponsors, wonder..... could it be that this cartoon describes what is happening to the programmers, the ever-shifting inexperienced managers, and the loyal volunteers too that preside at Our Radio Station = & paid for by the many donors who HOPE and WANT improved station operations and Honest + Unbiased + Intelligent-prone + Educational + multi-Diverse [which means not diverting to one racial / social / class-level / viewpointed group.
Instead of just choosing to emphasize the ones who shout loudest or claim 'worst victimhood' - those saying we have been More Victimized, Worse Treated, Suffered Most, and / or at least are "holier than anyone of you"..... it would be more Diverse to Include more global and local viewpoints than those that sound-off and tell-off listeners that are given on-air access now.
Wearing a sticker to identify as The Most Victimized, and thus The Most Deserving of Anything We Want results in alienating and shooing away all others who also may have had it 'hard' or 'bad' or difficult but not played it up so loudly.
Statistics are strange and makes us wonder how come this discrepancies to what things 'appear' to be:
1. from the Census at:
re LA County demographics race [or call it "culture" as some prefer] from July 1, 2014:
White alone, 71.3%
Asian alone 14.8%
Interesting to note what proportion of which group dominates the media, the protests, the KPFK programmers, the content of KPFK programs, and other comparative things we all see, hear and about which we care enough to attend. Diligently.
The Mission at KPFK and Pacifica have similar ideals... goals....desires: excerpts indicated below- with special words put into italics here for emphasis:
