  • David Dayen on the Baby Formula Shortage & Monopolies in the Age of Corporate Power

    House lawmakers have raised alarm over a nationwide baby formula shortage after a manufacturer in Michigan shut down over health concerns and was linked to the deaths of two infants. Advocates are calling for greater accountability and investigation into the manufacturer, Abbott Laboratories, even as the Food and Drug Administration is in talks to allow the plant to reopen. We look at how Abbott’s grip on the market for baby formula, amounting to about 20% of all formula distributed in the U.S., contributed to the crisis. An overhaul to the system where the government subsidizes only a few formula brands can help combat the monopolization that has caused this crisis, says David Dayen, executive editor of The American Prospect.

  • Do Online Forums Act as "Radicalization Machines" for White Supremacists & Mainstream GOP?

    Before embarking on a murderous rampage in a majority-Black neighborhood, the Buffalo shooter posted a white supremacist manifesto online that fixated on white dominance, white fertility and the survival of the white race. These are all sentiments shared by the Republican Party and its media arms, says author and extremism researcher Talia Lavin, who spent nearly a year impersonating right-wing white supremacists online, assuming false identities to infiltrate their groups, as she worked on her book, “Culture Warlords: My Journey into the Dark Web of White Supremacy.” She adds that online chat platforms such as 4chan and Telegram are essentially “perpetual motion radicalization machines” where “people who are already radicalized or in the process of being radicalized can imbibe propaganda.” Her recent article for Rolling Stone is headlined “The Buffalo Shooter Isn’t a 'Lone Wolf.' He’s a Mainstream Republican.”

KPFK has a new Interim General Manager
I’m happy to let you know that on Monday, May 16, Gregg Lewis will be at KPFK serving as the Interim General Manager. Gregg comes to Pacifica with a rich history in public media, marketing, and fundraising.  For over 25 years, he worked for KCRW and was the key strategist transforming the station into a world-renowned public-radio powerhouse, doubling their market share in less than a year and tripled the size of their sustaining monthly giving program.  His extensive background in management, development, and programming will greatly benefit KPFK and the Pacifica network.

I trust all will welcome Gregg to the Pacifica family and hat’s off and many thanks to Stuart!
