REAL SCANDAL

After years of GOP creating fake scandals, here is a real one.

TREAT AS SUCH

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) has said he didn’t know about an uptick in deadly Legionnaires’ disease around Flint until this year, but newly released emails show a Snyder aide had been warned last March.

Snyder’s office said the agency that has already accepted blame for much of the Flint water crisis dropped the ball on the Legionnaires’ disease issue and nobody told the governor about it. The Michigan Democratic Party has now called on Snyder to resign.

“He’s made the leap formally in his email that the uptick in cases is directly attributable to the river as a drinking water source — this is beyond irresponsible, given that is his department that has failed to do the necessary traceback work to provide any conclusive evidence of of where the outbreak is sourced,” Wurfel wrote.

Something to think about …. “Your water source, Gov?!!

NO DOUBTS ABOUT THIS

The Flint water crisis is a drinking water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan (United States), that started in April 2014.

After the change in source from treated Lake Huron water (via Detroit) to the Flint River, the city’s drinking water had a series of problems that culminated with lead contamination, creating a serious public health danger.

The corrosive Flint River water caused lead from aging pipes to leach into the water supply, causing extremely elevated levels of lead. As a result, between 6,000 and 12,000 residents had severely high levels of lead in the blood and experienced a range of serious health problems.

To start the day …. “Rachel Maddow: Town Hall Meeting in Flint, Michigan”!!

FLINT TOWN HALL

I’m an avid follower of Rachel Maddow. I started following her when she was on satellite radio in “Air America”.

I was intrigued by this woman who spoke so eloquently and seemed so informed about the politics in America.

Her nightly show is a must for me.

She was the one who broke this story and brought it to the attention of other news media.

I believe she’s done an incredible, invaluable service to the city of Flint and hence, to other cities in the US.

Last night’s event was informative, educational, exceptional and a milestone.

Kudos, Rachel!

Rachel Maddow’s Flint Town Hall Was Television Journalism At Its Finest

Rachel Maddow put on a display of what cable news is truly capable of with a fantastic town hall discussion about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

Maddow’s town hall was the anti-cable news. There were no raging talking heads placing political blame. Instead, there was a master plumber describing in detail the cost and effort that it will take to replace all of the lead pipes in the city.

(Total cost for each home roughly $10,000, and there are 30,000 homes in Flint.)

The town hall was not a political blame game, or an emotional plea for help.

In true Maddow fashion, the discussion from Flint was focused on the crisis and how it can be fixed. For instance, the doctor who discovered the elevated blood levels in the children of Flint, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, discussed the resources that these kids may need and how the parents and the community can come together to give the kids that were exposed the best possible outcomes.

Rachel Maddow’s town hall featured the best experts on the Flint crisis talking about what has happened and what needs to be done.

It was telling that Gov. Rick Snyder was asked to appear at the town hall, but he never responded to Maddow’s invitation.

Maddow reminded viewers that thanks to Gov. Snyder’s city manager in Flint, the responsibility for the poisoning of a city rested with the governor and state officials, not the local politicians. Obviously, Rick Snyder knew that his bogus and untruthful buck passing to the people of Flint would not hold up under questioning, so he avoided Rachel Maddow at all costs.
