WAMC Northeast Pirate
not elected -- EVER!!!
WAMC-90.3 FM has a perennially
chairman and executive director -- but why is that?
Under Alan S. Chartock's management,
WAMC, Inc., a tax-exempt corporation, has
never allowed its
listener-members (paid subscribers) to participate in an election of this
radio station's leadership (its chairmanship or any other corporate officer)
-- and why is that?
For all his shrill self-righteousness,
and his breast-beating Liberal talk about politicians who get
'elected', Alan Chartock has
never, NEVER, in twenty-plus
years running WAMC, stood for election before his own
What does this tell you about this hypocritical
gasbag and his real views concerning elections and democracy, both corporate
and otherwise? (Doesn't he trust his own listeners?)
Is it any surprise to those who know him
that Mr. Chartock lacks the guts to face a secret ballot? His personal
integrity is apparently in such short supply that he simply will not risk
subjecting himself honestly to the will of his own WAMC electorate.
It is likely that the moon-lighting SUNY
professor is afraid of losing his cushy public-radio salary, his WAMC
company car, his expensive corporate perquisites, and of course, that easy
access to a multi-state public soapbox to tell people what he thinks.
Meanwhile, you can bet your bottom pledge
dollar that for two decades he has laughed out loud all the way to the
bank knowing just how easy it has been in this Age of Enron and
to sucker a very gullible - and very generous - listening public.
Think about these things next time you
listen to WAMC's all-knowing
Political Commentator -- especially
he rants ad nauseam about all those in positions of public trust
he accuses of being corrupt, power hungry, greedy and disingenuous.
