    KPFA: Is it possible to listen to this station on my ROKU?

    • Rae Claire

      Get the TuneInRadio app. I don’t listen to KPFA there, but it’s probably there if they have live streaming. Works great for KQED. I love my ROKU!

    I had a hard time understanding why you weren’t trying to get someone on the ground in Orlando.

  • BJ

    Did not like attitude of Bill Fletcher, Jr. toward callers this morning. He’s inflamed! Please give some time to sincere and decent people. I will not listen to him again. Thank you.

    Bill Fletcher is unfortunately emblematic of the new, more conservative attitude of KPFA. No real progressive would in any way support Clinton. Fletcher did not deal with the facts that 1) there’s a much bigger difference between progressives on one hand and Clinton and the Democrats on the other, than between Democrats and Republicans; and 2) Clinton would be a worse war monger as president than Obama, leading to untold death and destruction, and would be much worse than Trump on this issue; and 3) that Clinton wholeheartedly supports investors’ rights agreements like the TPP, her current lies to the contrary, while Trump is strongly opposed to those agreements and would thus be much better on that issue. Instead, Fletcher used the fear tactic to disgustingly urge people to vote for Clinton because she wouldn’t be as bad as Trump in his opinion. In reality, they’d be equally awful in different ways.

    I’ve stopped listening to KPFA on a regular basis because of crap like this. Combining the evening news with KPFK was the last straw for me, but this bad trend has been going on for awhile. I realize that KPFA is the least bad choice I have for political programming on the radio and there are still some good Pacifica programs, but I really dislike what KPFA has become. I started listening to KPFA around 1980 and my first friends in Berkeley were KPFA people including a former station manager, so I can attest to the fact that these changes are real, not imagined. I demonstrated outside of KPFA in 1999 when the Clinton Democrats from Pacifica tried to take it over and make it into a PBS-like propaganda machine, so I’ve had big loyalty to this station. Unfortunately, they’ve left me nothing to be loyal to any longer.
