  • The Nation magazine has an interesting article on the Pacifica network and its current situation and crises.
    This article nicely places the events of the past two years in a conherent context and timeline, and attempts to balance the views of both sides (Pacifica Board/Management vs. Free Pacifica/KPFAers). The author, a former NPR editorial director, is clearly sympathetic to the idea of increasing national programming and making program modifications to increase audience, but also seems sincere in his left-wing sympathies and recognition that Pacifica should not become another NPR. As a former radio programmer (4 yrs. as chair of WEFT’s Programming Chair) I am all too aware of some of the complexities and tensions pointed out in the article.
