Reporting by the Los Angeles Times on rancor within KPFK, Pacifica’s Los Angeles station, prompted this response from Pacifica Executive Director Greg Guma, posted on Rolas de Aztlan. During its recent board meeting, the Pacifica National Board endorsed a resolution expressing appreciation for the “innovative leadership” of KPFK General Manager Eva Georgia [posted under Guma’s letter], and Guma spoke publicly about the dispute. “Pacifica is being defamed and threatened by a small group who see it as an easy target,” Guma said, according to a statement posted on Rolas de Aztlan. “This represents a cynical, organized attempt to intimidate Pacifica, to undermine its finances, to spread disinformation . . . , and gang up on the organization in an effort to extort settlements.”
