Hey, y'all... I'm trying to convince KBOO's morning and evening news people to post their story slugs (headlines) to indymedia and various other sites. Some have suggested that we should post the actual audio, but that's gonna have to be their job. :) After all, it is available on www.kboo.org, and i'm already too busy.

Posting the headlines will allow portland's radical community to:

a) briefly scan the day's stories and investigate them further on their own if they can't listen
b) remember that there is a morning news at 7:30, and to listen when they can (and 5pm news, too! And News In Spanish, too!)
c) make sure that you're calling us with story ideas. We rely too much on AP and independent but non-local sources. We need more local reportage. If you come down with a story idea, we'll teach you how to do it yourself!

And for KBOO, posting these headlines give us the benefit of:

a) your critical feedback.. some have said kboo's too NPRish - and that's only cuz yer not participating! NPR listeners say we're too biased.
b) keeping us honest, by making sure that your stories are getting airtime
c) keeping us honest: because if we don't pronounce things right or we're boring, all you hordes of anonymous posters of negativity will jump all over our asses! Bring it on! If you support us, we will make the Oregonian irrelevant. I'm serious. Why should we listen to lies?
d) Doing outreach to the wider Portland community
e) reminding people at KBOO take indymedia a little more seriously, too. Most folks don't even know about web radio, or live simul-webcasts. This is a failure in outreach, on both sides....

Speaking strictly for myself: Patrik Angstrom Poore

Portland Indymedia people and Kboo have done some nice coverage of some of the worst cases of police violence and attack of our civil rights in the country. Without this joint coverage and masses of video, audio, and digital coverage, the police would have us all locked in our houses right now.

In solidarity
