Ed Mangiafico responds to WCAI's explanation
I did receive this response from WCAI and responded (as seen below). It is inconceivable that he would refer to the Diane Rehm show as having aired locally. That is a national program to which they subscribe and are committed to air.
Letter to WCAI/WNAN/WZAI
Independent book stores and local public radio
I am sorry that you don't understand the issue.
First, whoever speaks in response to a call to the station represents that station.
Second, you have aired national programs but not unbiased local coverage.
Third, you have the Alliance (a citizens opposition group) and Cape Wind (the project) but not Clean Power Now (the citizens advocacy group) unless they pay (I'll be glad to play that conversation for you between CPN and your representative).
I suggest that if you aren't controlled or directly involved in the suppression that you solve the problem by airing a local discussion of the book and the issue without bias.
Finally, you may be assured that I was not misinformed and I am disappointed that you take me for the fool with the tone of your response. I have been in business too long for that.
Ed Mangiafico, Chatham
