THE FINAL WORD ON LEO GOLD AND THE KPFT SCANDAL

I finally finished the video, documenting the issue with KFPT and Leo Gold.  You may remember:

 “In a curt manner Gold hung up with the man and then entered into a tirade that the man was a sneak, and some how called his show to slip in false and dangerous information that could harm his listeners — as if they didn’t have the ability to decide for themselves.  I was totally thrown, because this level of disrespect is outside my experience with KPFT.”

You can check out more in my earlier blog entries below.  Please post comments and tell me what you think of the video.

THE LIES, DECIET & DISINFORMATION OF KPFT

The following video is the final response to what began as a question of fairness that developed into an investigation of the integrity of the Pacifica radio…

SAY NO TO LEO AND KPFT! THE BOYCOTT RAGES ON!

LEO GOLD-001 JPG

These are just some of the words from Leo Gold from 10/22/09.

This is my membership renewal from the Pacifica Foundation.  On it, it reads:

“When you renew your membership to KPFT you help us to promote peace through everything we do by presenting news, music and VIEWPOINTS that help us to understand more about our world and the people around us, because understanding creates compassion, and compassion creates peace. ”

What has taken place over the past three weeks has not been the rantings of some rogue radio announcer spewing his hatred for all those who don’t see eye to eye with him.  No, every word that Leo Gold said has been backed up by the staff at KPFT and therefore by Pacifica.  They back him up, they support him, and they endorse him.

For these reasons, I will not be taking part in something “special”, and I ask you to stand with me in opposition to this hypocrisy by boycotting KPFT and Pacifica.  The terms of this boycott are simple.

Do not renew your memberships or make any financial restitution for KPFT or Pacifica until such time a time that they regain their integrity and make peace the priority for not only those they agree with, but especially for those with whom they disagree.

BOYCOTT THE BS   — NO MONEY FOR KPFT!!!

THE REAL LEO GOLD SHOW THAT KPFT DOESN’T WANT YOU TO HEAR!

What you’ve heard from Ernesto is false. What he’s saying about what was said on Thursday’s show is only half true. Listen to the entire show — more remarks to follow.

THE TRUTH, THE PEOPLE and KPFT

What’s our goal:  An Equal Voice on KPFT.  It’s a good start.

Thank you all for participating in what has become an action of protection and perseverance.  First of all this dialog is self defense.  If we allow the “Alternative” media to marginalize our movement without even giving it the benefit of seeing the light of day, then how easy will it be for the MSM to do the same?  I’m sure all of you are aware that Constitutionalists, Paulists, Truthers are now part of a profiling programing initiated by Home Land Security.  Our only hope to turn the tide is to make our presence known. We must be visible, and we must be vocal.

I would discourage any personality “Piss Wars” for lack of a better phrase, with Ernesto and Leo.  This is not about them.  It’s about their paymasters.  It’s about the corporations who pay to have them there, and it’s also about a unsuspecting public who look to them as the source of truth and fairness.  We must put an end to Pacifica Radios deception.

Bottom line, stick to the issues, but engage them on all fronts, especially the heart of the beast which is Pacifica’s mother station, KPFA in San Francisco.  Emails, calls and person to person communication do us no good in this matter.  All dialogue must be public and accessible to the public.  Use the social media networks and the blogs.  Call the radio stations to speak on the air not person to person.  Allow this local squabble to become a national and international dialogue to bring awareness of the truth for many people who sorely need it.

I thank you for your time and for your help.

LEO GOLD: “I note that he (Alex Jones) is generally considered in MSM to be, verbatim, a “conspiracy theorist” …”

An unrepentant Leo Gold says he stands by what he said.  Alex Jones is a conspiracy theorist and is dangerous.  He also ads he’s enjoying the publicity he’s getting for attacking Jones.

So this is Leo Gold’s response to my complaints about his conduct yesterday on KPFT 90.1.

I assume you are the irate Clint from yesterday’s show, who has now posted indictments of all of KPFT on various sites, and perhaps even left me an anonymous message at my employment accusing me of false things. It would have been easier to just send me an email directly, but you apparently seek a wider controversy. Fine, I seek a wider audience.

I spent time on Jones’ site last night. Afterward, I regard him as a fine businessman and a good host and a groundbreaker in independent hosting. I’m glad to learn about him, so I thank Sonny for that. I note that he is generally considered in MSM to be, verbatim, a “conspiracy theorist” the words I used after simply glancing at his home page. For what MSM is worth.

I am well aware that theorist/Paulist/libertarian types regards KPFT as a type of home, and it is not my intention to make anyone feel not at home. If I did that I regret it, though my evaluation is not much changed. At this time, my intention is to discuss this controversy, to the extent that there is one, on next week’s show. That seems to me to be the obvious course of action, although it will be tight given fund drive. Given that, I recommend that you stand down right now. But if not, that’s ok too, as http://www.facebook.com/l/a0199;newcapitalshow.com hits are way up and people are emailing like crazy that they loved yesterday’s show.

Regards,
Leo Gold

I implore people of conscious to put preasure on KPFT to get this guy off the air.  If there are truthers who support KPFT with their dollars, let them know you don’t support front organizations of the NWO.

Hypocrisy Has Rendered KPFT and Pacifica Irrelevant

kpftglobe

Today while driving back to the office after lunch, I listened to KPFT 90.1 FM in Houston.  For those of you who don’t know, this is a Pacifica radio affiliate.  Now if you’re not aware, KPFT’s mission statement says amongst other things the following:

“In radio broadcasting operations to promote the full distribution of public information; to obtain access to sources of news not commonly brought together in the same medium; and to employ such varied sources in the public presentation of accurate, objective, comprehensive news on all matters vitally affecting the community.”

Also, on the KPFT website, they have a code of conduct.  Here are the first two rules of the code as they are published on their website:

  1. Treat other people as you would like to be treated yourself.
  2. Verbal and physical attacks are not tolerated on Pacifica and KPFT property, or at KPFT and Pacifica events and meetings.

For these reasons and others, I have supported the radio station with my listenership and donations with the impression that KPFT continues to uphold these ideas.  This is why I was so taken back when listening to the “The New Capital Show”  which airs on Thursdays between 3 and 4PM.  The host, Leo Gold, was preaching about the need for critics to shut up and get on board with the policy of the current presidential administration.  He took a call from a man who was very polite, well spoken and informative who wanted to inform listeners about Alex Jones’ new documentary, “Fall of the Republic”.

In a curt manner Gold hung up with the man and then entered into a tirade that the man was a sneak, and some how called his show to slip in false and dangerous information that could harm his listeners — as if they didn’t have the ability to decide for themselves.  I was totally thrown, because this level of disrespect is outside my experience with KPFT.  So I called in, and challenged Leo on his treatment of the caller.  He became angered and eventually hung up on me as well for daring to question his authority.  So I wrote him the following letter, and posted on KPFT’s site, who removed it instantly, so now I’m sharing it with you.  Please let me know your thoughts.
