  • Trump's Fox Fave Tucker Carlson Goes Fishing After Lead Writer Resigns over Racist Online Comments

    The lead writer for President Trump's favorite Fox News TV show, "Tucker Carlson Tonight" — the most popular cable show in history — has resigned for posting disturbing racist and misogynist messages to an online forum under a pseudonym. Now Tucker Carlson says he's going on vacation, and his advertisement blocks "are a wasteland," says Matt Gertz, senior fellow at Media Matters, where he documents the relationship between Fox News and the Trump administration.

  • We Are Not Your Mascots: Washington NFL Team Removes Racist Name After Years of Indigenous Protests

    The Washington NFL team, whose name and mascot have been a slur against Native Americans for nearly 90 years, announced Monday it will change its racist name, facing mounting pressure from corporate sponsors. The decision is a hard-fought victory for Indigenous activists who for years have demanded the team remove the R-word from its name. It also comes as the Black Lives Matter movement has forced a reckoning about monuments and tributes to racism around the country. We get response from Amanda Blackhorse, a Navajo activist who has led the fight to change the name and logo of the Washington R-dsk-ns football team.

  • "Release Is Only Way to Save Lives": Migrant Families Face Separation as COVID Spreads in ICE Jails

    As the United States leads the world in coronavirus infections, we go behind the walls of immigrant jails, where infection rates are also soaring, and also look at how thousands more jailed migrant parents may be separated from their children starting Friday. "Release is the only way to save the lives of people in custody," says reporter Jacob Soboroff, who went inside these ICE jails and first witnessed kids in cages in 2018, which he writes about in his new book, "Separated: Inside an American Tragedy."

From the General Manager

  • We're Trying Something New

    Community media, news, services, and journalism are all cornerstones of our democracy and are more critical than ever. Many community organizations, publications, and independent media companies will become casualties of the pandemic. Our world has changed profoundly and KPFK is adapting to it, so we can still be here for you.

    — Anyel Z Fields

  • You're Invited: Where Does KPFK Go From Here?

    Tomorrow at 7 PM, KPFK General Manager will be hosting a conversation about KPFK, its place in Southern California, and its future. 

    — Anyel Z Fields

  • There Is No Replacement For An Activist State

    We are watching how our long battle in bringing a progressive vision to our democracy is finally beginning to take hold. We were here long before Bernie Sanders and the New York Times shifted the conversation from liberal to progressive thinking.
