KPFK in Los Angeles seems to be dis-appearing some paid staff, but silence is all we hear

Maybe the only site that provides a blog/ forum/ resource that a KPFK subscriber-owner of this station can learn about what is happening internally in that non-transparent dysfunctioning radio station is =
www.la.indymedia.org. And only a few people write there but hopefully many more may read there , if they can find that site.

Articles have be 'published' there about rumors that some the paid staff are not working at KPFK any longer, but no on-air information has been made available for fact-checking or verification. Since no one ever answers KPFK's voice mail messages or emails sent to the station, and most staff do not directly answer the phone calls either, the reigning silence is astounding and frustrating to the radio-sponspor-listeners & dedicated volunteers.

These are only 2 of the most recent articles written there, and more were written in October 2008 too ....These articles may or not be of interest:

KPFK's hub called Pacifica is eliminating selected staff...why ?
2008-11-07 2:25 PM
Pacifica is KPFK's coordinating central source, and it's recent Executive Director has ALSO been eliminated....what is going on ??? Who decides who stays and who goes? Who is benefitting from these firings? And why does KPFK keep silent about it ?

and
KPFK's mother, Pacifica is showing signs of economic...strain?
2008-11-07 2:06 PM
Pacifica is doing it's own elimination of good staffers and most of KPFK's subscribers have no idea of what is going on...what is happening to our [we pay for it] stations?

There is a dearth of actual verifiable fact-checkable information about what is actually occuring in any of our stations' [yes, OUR, while we may individually pay less than $1,000/yr but we do pay up regularly] internal dysfunctional workings. Only when on the station's site can we sometimes recognize the disquieting stress & strains that are never spoken about openly - for 'outsiders' like volunteers are not to hear. Not that alllll should be aired on the air. Not that headline news need be made of much troubles and pains. But some truth needs to be exposed and told.

Yet the hiding and thus dissimulating of 'how are we doing now ?"
creates much listener-sponsor distrust, and then further refusal to 'pledge again'.

Why is such secrecy and denial necessary when Free Speech is one of the main promotions of our stations' propagandized facade ?
Is it all a lie ? Is there a small group or a person who is manipulating our systems - maybe like a virus - out to destroy the ideals and story that KPFK and other Pacifica stations claim say "who we are"...but are sadly are not ?

How frustrating to not kno. It is like being blinded by silences.
