Pacifica is revealed at Here is a comment from there.

" Thank you, again and again, for updated information – that is never heard, nor found elsewhere , and Not Allowed “out” — to KPFK & other Pacifica station’s members. 

But here is described in detail. We rely on your good reporting and your accounting expertise / know-how. 

 Every report is a ‘surprise’ with revelations of behaviors, wild maneuverings, sly manipulations, dysfunctional meetings…and whatever also reflects what seems to be the Political Scenes within ‘our’ USA governmental proceedings currently. 

And your dedication – to Sharing what is otherwise kept “secret” and “concealed” and hidden- is appreciated. Even while our radios are blaring-begging – as all program hosts & KPFK staff just pretend — that all is” just fine” –if you all just “send us More $$$ ! ” 

The fake image is repeatedly presented – as if all is ” in order.” And the only consideration given is that: if only more $$$ donations are received, then there are No Problems …[at KPFK, et al. ]. 

The Solution is just money, and more of it.

Meanwhile, here we learn that the processes and meetings and interested-individuals: sabotage or take control. And thus are destroying any possibility of KPFK & other Pacifica stations be stable, sustainable, or held accountable – and continue – as they seemed to do, be, before.

thank you."

KPF-A is undergoing Corrupting Dissolution - coming soon to KPF-K too ?

NOTE: all emphasis in quotes is not in original but presented for noting, not ignoring or by-passing.
This is a partial repost of quotes of the  Nov 20, 2016 article at :


             Fowler Museum Exhibit

 "KPFA being transferred or sold-out? by new org set up by a few KPFA players, and their lawyers, of course.

Pacifica’s bylaws also require a vote of the Pacifica membership prior to any “transaction…”  and    Pacifica’s 2002 bylaws ….were drafted up by listeners in Berkeley   

           “KPFA’s division has operated at a deficit 
                   for 5 of the last 7 years.

             "Pacifica’s debts were last reported 
                        at $4-5 million dollars.   

” There were 8 affirmative votes for the proposal, representing less than a 1/3 of LSB’s membership.  

…” Campisi indicated that if the Pacifica Foundation national board of directors did not accede to KPFA’s proposals that he intended to propose the KPFA local station board initiate a lawsuit against the Pacifica Foundation to forcibly dissolve it. Campisi said that he intended to take advantage of the loss of directors and liability insurance …” 

and      “…that he would attempt to get around the law’s requirement…”

“A successful legal action to dissolve the Pacifica Foundation in the California courts would result in the Federal Communications Commission revoking all of the broadcast licenses and re-allocating them. 

"In general, the policy of the commission is that re-allocations are not made to past or present members of the governance or past or present employees of a previous failed licensee, so 
it is likely all 5 broadcast licenses would be reassigned to entities with no past or present connection to the Pacifica Foundation or any of its stations.” 

             - - - / - - - - - / - - - - - - - - - - - - -/- - -

What often is in question and  seldom correctly answered is : when there is a breaking "a law" or "bylaw" who has real Authority to enforce anything ?    

When there are no authorized enforcers or visible power to effect and keep honest those involved in any organization, then all sorts of cons, games, thefts, and ploys are in play -continuously, unless Stopped !              

 But when any enforcer is denied the position of Power or Legitimate Position to Enforce what is claimed or written as "our rules" or "The Laws" - becomes only a facade of legitimate structure.        

 Illusions of stability and form are ruptured any time by anyone with any excuse when there is no accountable Enforcing those perimeters.       

Lack of substantiating members to any decision makes doubtful whatever they vote up or down. As in USA presidential politics, more easily so in minor orgs like Pacifica and it's children.       

Quotions from of above show that - All these  indicate lack of 'mandate' power or authority to actions taken that are then any how  branded/ labeled as if  "Done!"       

Also as quoted parts of above:  

" if the Pacifica Fdn  .... did not accede to KPFA’s proposals...the KPFA LSB [may, or will ]  initiate a lawsuit against the Pacifica Fdtn   -to forcibly dissolve it........that he intended to take advantage of the loss of directors and liability insurance …” and “…that he would attempt to get around the law’s requirement…”      

Those revelations further show how using law suits to get one's desired results are made or  intimidated, to further subvert any "bylaws" or Rules or prior decisions made by elected [or selected]  group members. Sad. Bad.     

Not unusual in other businesses -  but in idealistic Pacifica w/it's constantly crowing about being so "non-commercial" or not corrupt ? Sad. Bad
