Joining me today is Jordan Chariton of Status Coup to talk about what by all rights should have been recognized as, and is, one of the largest stories and one of the largest scandals in recent memory. Yet it was systematically ignored, belittled and shut down by both the media and the government — you know all the very people supposedly entrusted with the wellbeing of Americans. This is a story about Flint Michigan (and as I aways add, yeah, that’s still happening). A story about the lies told to its residents and the American people about the safety of their water — the malfeasance and profiteering of its politicians, the obfuscation of that deceit by the media, and the covering up of the entire thing.
