Flash In The Pan Points Radio

once upon a time

Take a good look above. Study it.

KPFA's Flashpoints was regularly covering the Libyan War. The program had even increased their coverage and, since June 21st, were speaking regularly to Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya who is on the ground in Tripoli.

While Kevin Pina spent weeks and weeks filling in for Dennis Bernstein, you could catch Mahdi's reporting Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Then Dennis returned and quickly that was the end of any coverage of the Libyan War on Flashpoints. August 12th was Friday and Flashpoints hasn't provided Libyan War coverage since August 3rd.

The day before the last Libyan War report aired, Dennis Bernstein was crowing over the airwaves about the coverage of the war that Flashpoints Radio had been offering, "I am hoping that people who have heard our coverage on Libya, another Obama war that is a war of aggression, a war of oil, if you are proud to be a part of Flashpoints and the kind of reporting that you get on KPFA and on Flashpoints, won't you please call . . ."

The drum-beat coverage quickly ended when Dennis returned which begs the question: Did Dennis accidentally sit his fat ass down on the drum and break it? Is that what ended the "drum-beat coverage" of the Libyan War?

We don't know.

We just know it was cooking while Dennis was on vacation. He returns and quickly shuts down the coverage.
