You think G.M.'s got problems...

The Flint Journal — like many newspapers across the country — appears to be in a death spiral. And is continuing to do an excellent job chronicling its demise with insider info and analysis. In other words, he's doing the kind of reporting that used to be done at daily papers.

  1. guaranteed local coverage of news channels by directv-which is a falsehood, the buyouts of countless newspapers...this is being done for a reason.Websites like Common Dreams, the coalition that Michigan Messenger is a part of, are keeping the spirit of independent media alive.old Rupert should have his greencard revoked...just for plaguing us all w/shite like fox(ugh)news. You can edit or CENSOR the shite word if You want GY. I just hope a slight twinge of GUILT makes Ya toss and turn a couple extra times tonite.j/k!


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
