David Barsamian, host of Alternative Radio, who was initially listed as an endorser of the “no” recall campaign, now says that it was a “total error on his part.” He told KPFA staff that he retracted his endorsement once he found out more about the issues.
KPFA staffer Davey D of Hard Knock Radio, in response to a listener query, has also said he did not take a position against the recall. Nevertheless, his name still appears on the anti-recall site as a staff endorser.
