I've received the following correction from KQED:

    Conxion is our hosting vendor and they have nothing to do with the user 
    interface for the site. The site design was done by 415 and the backend 
    (which you are complaining about) was done by Deloitte Consulting.

...which should clear things up somewhat.  

I'll note that all three of these firms run underwriting credits on

I'll also note that I wouldn't care nearly so much if I didn't feel KQED
was an excellent community resource, and if I wasn't very pleasantly
amazed to find them beating me to the punch with Palast by nine months.
