I would not like to see any of our folks on the national resign they are all
doing a top notch job even without fucus on the real issue that effects this
Localism, Total Control that can only happen with wpfw broadcast license
from Pacifica and if you think the attack on the mission statement just came
up on a local level, i got news for you, long long time ago in the struggle
to save/wpfw/pacifica movement that was a hot burner issue from a lot of
folks that now set on the national.
I hope that Ambrose and the others on the national fully understand they set
in a den of thieves that is trying to come though the back door to take
total control of programming in the network with that move at the last pnb
meeting to hire a National Program Director.
If that happen only god can help the wpfw mission statement in the future
knowing what i do about the back room parlor tricks that took place with Amy
Goodmans contract, that in a since gave away the Store/Pacifica, in the list
of supporters for funds and the only producer or programmer that has total
control over content of programming as a individual without pacifica
supervision, that to me cross the line.
It's true that the only way Pacifica, as a network can survive is to hire a
National Program Director and thats because as a foundation and network they
have total responsibility and control over programming and it's content to
the fcc, an issue that i brought to the PNB that took over 13 years for the
PNB to admit thats a fact.
It was in 1977 to 1990 when i was on air at wpfw the individual fcc
broadcast license holder had control and the responsibility for programming
and it's content to the fcc and now it belongs to the owner of the broadcast
license that happen to be the pacifica foundation and thats the real issue
as to why we need that license as a community.
I was the first fired and ban from pacifica/wpfw for over 13 years for not
signing a programmer agreement back in 1989 over this issue of resposibility
and control over programming and it's content and never gave up the fight
not even to this day.
Because i know how importaint it is to have control over our emergency
communication outlet, Mayfair Mansions prove that for me, when i advocated
over and over on the air waves of wpfw/pacifica that the Nation of Islam do
something to save our children from them selves and rest is history for the
black folks that lived in fear from that so call war on drugs on blacks in
As a person that has push more strings than i can ever pull, and they are
the one's that can pull the strings, i also don't want Mark or Ambrose to
resign, i just would like for them to fucus on the real issue facing our
community communication outlet and not buy in to a false dream.
Mark and Ambrose please don't resign, this community needs you as this
struggle continue, Peace and Love, The Way We Were>>>>>Billy Ray
