I was surprised when I read in the S.F. Chronicle that Noelle Hanrahan, a former Flashpoints host, filed a lawsuit against Dennis Bernstein, the director of Flashpoints, for sexual harrassment.
As a frequent listener of Flashpoints, I have come to respect Hanrahan and Bernstein for their work in alternative journalism.
I don't know the details of the alleged misconduct in the lawsuit against Bernstein. However, if there is any truth to Hanrahan's allegations, I believe Bernstein, the KPFA & Pacifica Foundation should conduct an internal investigation and take responsibility for their actions and inactions. If the allegations are false, Ms. Hanrahan will have to take responsibility for her actions.
Truth or lies - only time will tell.
