The NPR Public Editor has got to Go!

May 9, 2019

The Public editor has time to talk about a theme song switch on one morning news show, but won’t talk about NPR’s policy that blocks all mention of the entire music revolution where thousands and thousands of musicians are against the Big 3, the three old men, no women, that control the entire music industry.

Time for a new Public Editor, one who covers our serious concerns, and goes beyond this lite coverage.

This PE has become a watchdog for NPR, not listeners. We need someone new.

Ralph Nader looks at NPr and PBS

February 19, 2019

Dear Reader,

Search out the link for “The Realized Temptation of NPR and PBS” by Ralph Nader. He addresses a lot of my concerns in their media fairness. I would add that the problem includes all their art coverage too.
Right now all songs are NOT considered, and they actively block any progressive music, musicians, or music ideas connected with the music revolution.

TeXas Video Showdown and KERA

October 24, 2017

Musea Readers know that I have my problems with both NPR and local stations KERA and KXT for their lack of support for artists.

So I was surprised, when googling my name to find this posted in April of 2015 on the KERA Art and Seek site.

I had sent them a story and link feeling that they would never do anything about it.

Take a look, and know that the TeXas Video Showdown, worst video ever made… on purpose, is still going strong with thousands of hits.

When you go to the link, note that there is a place to add comments. Please do if you would like to support the cause.

Now when I criticize their coverage I have to change, “never covered” to” that one time!”

Letter to Mary Anne Alhadeff

Letter to Mary Anne Alhadeff

To Mary Anne Alhadeff
President and CEO of North Texas Public Broadcasting.

Will not support KERA or KXT. Will ask my readers to not support them too.

For 25 years you have gone out of your way to block all the news and progressive ideas and innovative artists of every kind from Dallas, Texas, and across the country.

You have blocked news of the issues covered by the Dallas zine Musea, a publication in print and online about the arts and media since 1992.

You have blocked the thousands of Dallas musicians, painters, filmmakers, writers, we have supported.

You have blocked the media innovations we have advocated.

You have blocked the progressive ideas we have printed about in the arts and media in Dallas, and across the country.

You have blocked coverage of most serious arts and media issues.

This link is 200 pages of other reasons, in this history of Dallas art and media since 1992. http://www.musea.us/Musea200.htm

Musea Will Not Support KERA (or KXT)

July 6, 2017

MUSEA will not support KERA (or KXT)

The Dallas zine Musea (monthly since 1992) cannot support KERA. We also advocate our readers not to support KERA, and we advocate that the rest of Dallas not support KERA.

For all of the last 25 years:

KERA has not reported on or supported the local and national musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, etc.; talked about in Musea.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help all artists of all kinds here and across the country.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help make the media in Dallas better.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help make Dallas a better city.

KERA has gone out of their way to not support anything Musea talked about in 200 issues.
