Leftist? which is?[edit]

Perhaps my concern is unfounded and inexperienced, but doesn't saying "left" seem lazy and superficial? Surely we can cite KPFK's more prominent issues and topics as opposed to just saying "it's left." I'm concerned more with the larger habit of labeling so many articles in this database with politically stereotyped names. Let the facts speak for themselves.

A "Network"?[edit]

I question the liberal use of the word "network" on this page. Pacifica clearly does not fit Wiki's own definition of a "system which distributes programming to multiple stations simultaneously, or slightly delayed". Pacifica makes a menu of programs available which AFAIK are taken on an à la carte basis to be broadcast at a time of each station's choosing, rather than as a live feed (excepting of course live news feeds on special events). The previous wording on the page describing a "network of over 100 stations" clearly was misleading for that reason, especially considering the organization owns only five stations and even they don't simulcast most programming. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:12, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
