A bunch of fossilized naysayers on our "favorite" message board are presently conducting one of their xtreme negative propaganda campaigns against Gary Null. Excuse me, but is that the same Gary Null who just saved WBAI from a tanking fund drive? You bet. Surprising? Not really, as most of them are negative about all things WBAI.
As the old buzzards circle around, waiting for WBAI to die, disparaging, lampooning and slandering anyone who engages in efforts to help the station is the latest sport. Thus it makes sense that they are now aiming their hateful rhetoric straight at Gary Null. The oddest thing is -- or maybe not so odd when you think about it -- is that not a single mention has ever been made on that board about Gary's glorious creation - the Progressive Radio Network (PRN) - which has been taking Internet radio by storm, experiencing wild growth in listenership and may be instrumental in putting BAI out of business. Maybe that's why? No, that couldn't be it, because they hate WBAI so much that they would never begrudge him that. No, they are simply in total denial.
Another thing they never mention is all the prize-winning documentaries Gary has produced. To listen to them you would think he was some kind of quack who sells dubious health products to innocent victims, blaming him for the home shopping network WBAI has come to resemble during marathons. As if that was Gary's fault. BTW Gary's PRN does not resemble a home shopping network, does not require producers to pitch. Just sayin'.
Gary has always been controversial and the target of attacks for holding views that are often ahead of the times, and because of his confrontational style and refusal to back down. It's just sad that some of these attacks are now coming from WBAI community. But then we don't really consider them to be part of that community, as they live in their own little fantasy world of 40-50 years ago.
Note: we're not accepting xtreme negative propaganda comments that can't be rationally debated. Go over to Albie's blog if you want to make those kinds of attacks.
