Presumably responding to Mitchel Cohen's clueless criticism of his resignation from WBAI last year, Andrew Phillips once again feels a need to explain what should have been obvious. He uses this opportunity to also set a couple of other things straight.

Andrew is absolutely correct, and he did the only thing someone with integrity intact could do. Summer Reese is a bumbling fool who has no business dabbling in broadcast management. The former head of WBAI's dysfunctional LSB, whose name may not be mentioned in this forum without a stomp of approval—yes, I said stomp—has posted in Nalini's forum, criticizing Andrew for resigning and lauding Reese for bringing back the scam artists. It brought in money, he says, so it was the right thing to do.
There is something about extended association with the so-called "new" Pacifica that makes some people lose their senses.
This produced the following e-mail from R. Paul Martin:
I told you not to. You can post his name and when I get to it I'll pass the message. You know this is done to prevent attacks on people who can't defend themselves. And do not discuss the moderation of the board.
My final thoughts on this:
It appears to me that R. Paul Martin's need to assert himself and gain notice has seriously affected his concept of "free speech." We were never told why he banished Mitchel Cohen and other elected board members from the BlueBoard, a forum he volunteered to take over a couple of years ago, but you can be sure it's somehow political. Now the zero hour nears and WBAI's abusers may have to turn to rather than on each other.
Of course, this forum is not closed to R. Paul should he wish to experience free speech!
What do you think?
