Comment reply to Greg Guma's posting, "Pacifica Radio: What Went Wrong?" syndicated to Pacificana.org:

Thank you for your continued valuable insights and analysis on the current state the Pacifica Foundation. The acknowledgement of the editorial from the Media Justice: KPFA website is also appreciated.

However, please do take note: shortly after its syndication to Pacificana.org, the article was updated with a correction to the reference from a widely distributed posting to various Pacifica lists:

In a follow up to the post in question, it was clarified by a KPFK LSB Finance Committee Member and former PNB Finance Committee Secretary that the 'letter' was actually a draft. It was not penned by the KPFK LSB chair, nor was it approved by the LSB and thus not sent to the National Office.

Writes the K-LSB member:
"However, the KPFK LSB ...did approve a detailed resolution calling for several prudent conditions to be attached to the PNB's approval of any loan collateralized by a major asset at any Foundation unit."

In the absence of direct communications and transparency from the currently leaderless organizaton to its loyalest of members and stakeholders, there is reason to believe these collective efforts to piece together some truths will and do raise the quality and quantity of dialogue. Hopefully this will serve to overcome the denials and misconceptions about the changing state of the media landscape, the stations, the Foundation, and a reaffirmation for the relevance of Pacifica's Mission to engage our respective communities and society-at-large.

Update to previous comment - Re: Pacifica Radio: What Went Wrong

Update to previous comment: though not officially and publicly reported out as of yet, it is turning out the KPFK LSB Chair may have well approved said communication. Though it remains unclear whether such a letter was send to the NO and/or the PNB, the fact that such a communication expressing concerns does exist is, in its own right, important enough.
If this is the case, the original articles on our respective web logs would be accurate.
