READ and SHARE our story on Flint’s faulty water testing:  SUPPORT our reporting in Flint and elsewhere so we can keep investigation what the corporate media covers: up


  1. So fantastic that you report on this important story and so generous of this woman to give of her time and energy for this interview. It is unacceptable that, in the richest country in the world, people don’t have access to clean drinking water or free health care.

    Just three small notes to maybe bear in mind for other interviews – feel free to ignore at will. I think it would be more courteous to use the interviewee’s name rather than ‘her’ or ‘she’ when referring to her during the interview (unless she wishes to remain anonymous, but if that’s the case perhaps let us know this). Secondly, I would suggest that it may be best to not use so many leading questions during the interview as it unduly influences the interviewee’s answer and undermines the impact of what they then say. Lastly, more sensitivity could have perhaps been shown to the feelings of this interviewee re: references to her illness and her potential prognosis or the prognosis of others in the area.
