Beckian demagogues on the Left too: New Pacifica Mishigas' attack on Amy Goodman as a CIA agent.
Goodman: Paid by CIA to cover-up 9/11 Truth?
Christopher Condon, an ally of Pacifica’s interim director Grace Aaron, last month introduced a resolution at a meeting of the Pacifica National Board’s Governance Committee targeting Democracy Now! over allegations that is is being secretly funded by the CIA.
The action, which would require every Pacifica programmer to disclose all sources of funding above $5000 and related contracts, passed the Committee and is before the Pacifica National Board, meeting in Houston this weekend, for approval.
An assembled pair of audio clips from Condon explaining the purpose of his resolution can be heard at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP6_xGxbi20 and an audio clip of the entire discussion - and votes - can be heard at http://www.kpftx.org/archive.php#governance090917 (at Part 1 of the Sept. 17 meeting from 0:03:32 to 0:41:25). In the clips, Condon, in particular - although he denies it several times - makes it clear that Goodman is the target of his resolution.
A Counterpunch article by Iain Boal entitled “The New Crisis at Pacifica” provides some of the political context for this attack; it can be found at http://www.counterpunch.org/boal10062009.html
Condon based the claimed need to dissect the finances of Democracy Now! on purported allegations that DN has received “CIA conduit funding” through the Ford Foundation to suppress information about the 9/11 “Truth” Movement.
