Spencer Graves

Spencer Graves says that progress on every
substantive issue he can think of is blocked, because every plausible
countermeasure threatens someone with substantive control over the
media. Part of this problem is that people make too many decisions
based on what comes readily to mind and ask too few question, especially
for important decisions. Part of the solution, he says, involves
individuals turning off ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox, and cable television,
and supporting instead noncommercial investigative journalism with
transparent funding that puts everything they produce on the web in the
public domain — and community media like KKFI to help disseminate
information without the commercial need to please advertisers. (How
many businesses make money biting the hands that feed them?)
Graves was raised on a farm in Cheyenne County, KS, 4
miles from Nebraska and 26 from Colorado. The US Air Force sent him to
Kansas City in 1970. He’s an engineer (Missouri license 015720) with a
PhD in statistics, whose research has led him to focus on improving
media funding and governance, including with KKFI. He serves on
multiple committees and is an Associate Programmer with, especially,
Radio Active Magazine. See also “EffectiveDefense.org” and
