Norman Solomon was a pledged delegate for Barack Obama in 2008. He repeatedly appeared on KPFA failing to disclose that. I know because I was one of the people who spent months complaining about it to KPFA management. Finally in July of 2008, it was noted on air. Norman Solomon talks a good talk but as we saw in 2008 it's "these are the rules" for others and then there are the rules for him.
In 2008 and since, he has publicly attacked Lynn Woolsey.
He also has a history of attacks on women. No history of speaking for feminist issues. In addition, as a Black man let me note he's done nothing for the Black community in the Bay Area. Dennis should have asked Norman where he lives. His neighborhood is 3% people of color.
I'm also getting real tired of KPFA providing 'friends' with outlets to run their campaigns.
