The fact is that you cannot tell listeners that what you are broadcasting is not for them and then expect them to not only stick around, but also pay for the crap you are offering. How dense are these "community" fools? Listen to Haskins' desperate pitch, made just before he left on a week's vacation. Is this racism, or not? Is he an imbecile, or not? And bear in mind, his is only one voice in this chorus of dummies.
It's all falling apart. Reggie Johnson arrived late yesterday morning, so the station was unmanned as one infomercial ended and 10 to 15 minutes of dead air followed. Then he suddenly showed up, out of breath and confused. Here's another instance of his confusion from this morning—imagine this sort of thing if there were any intelligent listeners left! I wonder what Null thought.
If you go here, you will find the list of candidates, so far, and their individual statements of desires and intents. It is quite disingenuous and depressing. Note, for example, that Kathy Davis thinks she can contribute to WBAI's welfare with her presence on the Board—was there ever a time when you heard her say anything that made sense? And how about Frank Lefever, a perpetual candidate with years of submitting naïve ideas, a huge ego, and an inability to owe up to his own shortcomings, such as being instrumental in the selection and hiring of Berthold Reimers. He used to brag about opening the door for Reimers, but you won't find that effort listed among Lefever's alleged accomplishments as he seeks another election to the LSB.
Here are six valid points made by Tex, a BlueBoard poster, after reading the statements made by this crop of LSB hopefuls:
1) Not one candidate addressed the root cause of Pacifica's dire financial situation: Declining listener support because the message is no longer relevant and the programming sucks.
