Public Comments KPFA Local Station Board No Lies Radio Report

Published on Sep 19, 2018
This 27 minute; 13 second video is an excerpt made from the “Public Comments” section of the archived audio of the KPFA Local Station Board, which was a little over 2 hours and 34 minutes. Eighteen speakers took the opportunity to state their current concerns to the community elected local station board, management, and staff in attendance. The Eighteen Speakers who spoke on September 15, 2018 were: (1) Laurie Cooper; (2) Woman with Spanish accent who did not give a name; (3) John; (4) Gordon Wright; (5) Allan Rees; (6) Chuck Millar; (7) Vic Sadot; (8) Ann Garrison; (9) Mary Ann Thomas; (10) Nancy Delaney; (11 Orion; (12) Scott Page; (13) Daniel Borgstrom; (14) Tricia Baretta; (15) Bill Gibbon; (16) Kathy Rogers; (17) Gil; (18) Chris.

The main topics of concern were the following: (1) The banning of the Guns And Butter show from KPFA; (2) A call for KPFA to support of the Journalism Rights of Julian Assange and to pass a resolution stating that support; (3) Content Issues: Promotion of Mockingbird News Lies about RussiaGate, Democratic Party talking points, 9/11 Truth, foreign terrorists waging a war against the elected government of Syria, Military Intervention, and issues related to investigating historical accuracy by the use of weaponized terminology such as “Anti-Semitism” to prevent criticism of the violent military Apartheid occupation of Palestine, and the calculated use of “Hate Speech” as a cover for the Suppression and De-Platforming of those engaging in “Free Speech”.

There is a disagreement over First Amendment Press Rights at KPFA Pacifica Meetings advertised as public meetings as distinguished from “executive session” meetings. At the last KPFA Local Station Board the LSB voted to not allow video recordings to censor the press in attendance. Labor Video YouTube Channel was ordered to not film and they put their camera away. In the No Lies Radio coverage of the last KPFA LSB meeting you can see that there were 2 men acting as “security” for the KPFA LSB who told the NoLiesRadio reporter, Vic Sadot, to stop filming. Although he continued to film as directed by the owner of NoLiesRadio, these two men effectively prevented NoLiesRadio from filming some of the comments of Bonnie Faulkner, host of the censored 17 year old summarily terminated program called “Guns And Butter Radio”, and all of the comments by Allan Rees, owner of NoLiesRadio, a Pacifica Affiliate.

Allan Rees presented some legal papers to Christina Huggins, current appointed LSB Chair, who presented him with counter legal papers. Allan Rees decided to not film at this time to avoid confrontation, time wasted in courts, and delays in reporting the public comments for 9-15-18. The audio is usually recorded except when “executive sessions” are invoked. This NoLiesRadio video report by Vic Sadot attemps to provide visuals and past and current historical context to the public by using photos creatively laid over the audio provided by the Pacifica archive.

Quote: “The Local Station Board welcomes community input. LSB meetings include a Public Comments period for listeners and others to communicate with the board. The LSB may also be reached by emailing:

All Pacifica Meeting Notices are listed at KPFTX dot org in advance and many of them have audio archives for the public to listen to on line or to download for free.
