This week, Brie spoke with Jordan Chariton, co-founder of independent investigative media outlet, Status-Coup, about new news out of Flint Michigan, and the algorithmic morass that's choking gumshoe reporting. In an article published this week in The Guardian, Chariton unpacked the new Democratic prosecutor's choice to drop racketeering charges which targeted the underlying financial fraud that enabled the Flint water poisoning crisis.
After catching us up on the state of Flint, Brie and Jordan strategized about how to expand left media's influence, and why The Young Turks no longer serves the role as a broad, unifying left umbrella under which diverse left voices can thrive. What has motivated the political shift at TYT, and can the left achieve a unified media umbrella without taking big money from billionaires?
