New interviews throughout the week

How the EPA's own poisoned politics failed to protect the people of Flint.


We've got hundreds, maybe thousands of schoolchildren who will never be able to read 'See Spot Run.' We have cases where people are having strokes in their eyes, because of the lead in their veins. There are people with shortened lifespans because of what happened in Flint. And no one has been charged with a crime. Explain that to me.
