KFCF Website Security

The KFCF website does not show any security issues with the Heartbleed security hole. Our credit card provider assures us: "You may be aware of a security issue being discussed in the news referred to as the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug. Heartbleed is a vulnerability which affects an estimated 50-60% of all websites which use SSL encryption. SSL encryption is the mechanism by which traffic sent over the Internet (such as via visiting https:// websites) is protected from prying eyes. NPC/Vantiv is aware of this situation. NPC/Vantiv 's Information Security team has carefully assessed its systems for vulnerability to Heartbleed and has found that no sensitive, external systems were vulnerable, including all transaction processing systems."

    photo of New KFCF Transmitter
    KFCF is now on the air with our new transmitter. We spent $10,000 to buy the new transmitter from our general operating fund, so now we need to replenish that fund. .

    As of Wednesday March 26, 2014 we have raised a little over $8.900 towards our goal of $10,000 A contribution of $500 or $1,000 will go a long way toward helping KFCF in this special time of need.
    Make your donation at KFCF TRANSMITTER FUND or use the transmitter fund button at the bottom of this page.

    Our transmitter failed and the replacement power supply is not allowing it to operate at full power. We are looking at moving the old transmitter to an emergency backup status.

    Wednesday April 23, 2014 -Robert McChesney & John Nichols - Dollarocracy (lecture)

    Dollarocracy: a system of government where private wealth determines political outcomes. Sound at all familiar? The corruption bred by boatloads of cash contaminates and pollutes our entire political process. So-called reforms won't cure the ailment. Radical surgery is required. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., understood this well when he counseled, "Timid supplications for justice will not solve the problem. We've got to massively confront the power structure." Washington is Lobbystan. The thousands of influence peddlars pretty much get what they want for their paymasters. Elections matter little. That's because, as McChesney and Nichols say, "Powerful interests-freed to, in effect, buy elections, set the rules of engagement. Those interests so dominate politics that the squabbling of Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, is a sideshow to the great theater of plutocracy and plunder." Democracy has been sold down the river.

    Robert McChesney teaches at the University of Illinois. He is the author of many books including Digital Disconnect. He is co-author with John Nichols of Dollarocracy. He is a founder of Free Press, a national media reform organization. The Utne Reader listed him among their "50 visionaries who are changing the world."

    John Nichols is Washington correspondent for The Nation. A contributing writer for The Progressive, he is also the associate editor of the Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin. He is a frequent guest on radio and television programs.
