What an incredibly stupid, misleading article from the Free Press

Post by MWmetalhead » Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:59 am

Former attorney general and current geriatric Frank Kelley wants us to believe that Nick Lyon is a "victim" of the Flint water crisis.

In contrast to what Mr. Kelley and apparently the Detroit Free Press want us to believe, the criminal charges against Michigan DHHS Director Nick Lyon have NOTHING to do with the actual decision to switch from Detroit water to the Flint River as a water source, and thus, the fact "Lyon was not consulted" (regarding the switch) is of ZERO relevance.

Leave it to the Free Press to repeat old geezer Frank Kelley's rhetoric to completely obfuscate the matter at hand with no challenge of any kind. The only reason Kelley is sticking up for Lyon is because Lyon (and Lyon's mother) both used to work for him.

The fact of the matter is Lyon was charged because he (allegedly) failed to alert the public about a foreseeable outbreak of Legionnaires' disease, which resulted in the death of a Flint area resident.

The Free Press should be ashamed of the fact they are willfully disseminating misinformation being spread by Frank Kelley!!

Fake news strikes again. Why would you read the Free Press?

The Flint water crisis happened because of the City of Flint's attempt to save some $$$.

Shhh!

We are not allowed to speak the truth in such cases.


The box that many broadcasters won’t look outside of was made in 1969 and hasn’t changed significantly since.

No, it happened because the state appointed EM and MDEQ hurried a switchover in sources that the water plant was ill equipped to handle (despite warnings from local water plant employees).

It was made much worse by improper guidance from the MDEQ as to treatment chemicals followed by a concerted cover up of troublesome lead testing and legionella data by state officials.
