Pacifica National Program Director Steve Yasko, who is the subject of a pending gender harassment AFTRA union grievance by Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, operates misogynistic pornographic web sites. (For more info on the Democracy Now! situation, see http://www.aftra.com)
In one of Steve Yasko's sites, he links New York Sen. Hillary Clinton to a teenage porn site that boasts “the web's youngest women” and “the hottest live teen shows on the net.” This link describes women as “college bitches.” The Yasko recommended site says, “Prepare Yourself for the Youngest Teens Allowed by Law,” and promises a “Barely Legal Video Yearbook.” (See http://web.smart.net/~mikebilt/mike.html and then click on the name of Hillary Clinton.)
Another of Steve Yasko's web sites, one of whose slogans is, “If It Sucks Dick on the Web, I'll List It,” evaluates various household consumer items (See http://www.mikebilt.com). For instance, an Epson printer is rated according to how well it prints pornographic photographs. And using listener and tax payer dollars, Steve Yasko travels around the country on Pacifica business and then evaluates the travel-related services he uses, like a hotel, for his commercial porn site.
This is no joke. Steve Yasko occupies the No. 2 spot at Pacifica, the most senior programming position at the network and directly under Executive Director Bessie Wash. This issue goes directly to the competency, credibility and judgement of the present Pacifica management team. More information will follow.
