I haven’t been paying attention to the problems at Pacifica radio lately, mainly because I live in an area that has no Pacifica affiliate (much to my chagrin), but it looks like the corruption of Pacifica’s original mission persists. Monkeyfist reports on problems between Pacifica and Democracy Now, one of the best radio programs currently aired. In my opinion, Democracy Now is an essential part of the media landscape, and the idea that it’s being harassed by higher-ups at Pacifica is deeply disturbing. Kendall’s report on Democracy Now took me on a brief trip down memory lane, and reminded me that the show had a large role in molding my current political philosophy, back when I listened to it on the way to work in rural Pennsylvania.
