Doug Clark: KPBXXX Has Nice Ring

Spokane Public Radio employees were in a red-faced dither last week when a link to a sexually explicit website somehow turned up on the KPBX Facebook page. I’m sorry. But embarrassment and removing the link were the wrong reactions. The station should have been celebrating its good fortune. That’s right, celebrating. What some see as a scandal is what I call a “happy accident.” You know, the way a piece of moldy bread left in a lab gave way to today’s giant, greed-driven pharmaceutical corporations. What I’m saying is that this Internet link could lead to the end of public radio’s funding fears. Oh, I’ll just say it. Porn will put the profit into public radio/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: What do you make of Clark's suggestion that KPBX might benefit by embracing porn?
