Forget Me Not
Episode 248: Rumble with Michael Moore
When the news of the week’s events becomes so deafening, so monstrous, that it overwhelms us — we miss critical other events that will affect us greatly.
This week, with the Supreme Court declaring women second-class citizens, the January 6th Hearing confirming Trump sought to stage a coup, and mass shootings continuing nationwide, there were vital stories that went uncovered and ignored.
Today I want to share with you three big stories that you may have missed recently, that were overlooked by the majority of the American public: the successful unionizing of the first Apple Store, the Israeli Defense Force shooting and killing an American journalist, and the Michigan Supreme Court on Tuesday unanimously blocking the prosecution of the Republican ex-governor for poisoning the water of Flint, Michigan.
Stories like these must not be buried. Please listen.
The people of Flint are still suffering. Let them know they are not forgotten, and help them get the support they need by donating here:
