All In’s Chris Hayes interviews Michael Moore in Michael’s home town, Flint, Michigan. Chris provides some teasers of Michael’s new movie: Fahrenheit 11/9; Michael gives a bit more background about the Flint situation, including an important historical marker: the 1936 Flint GM plant 45-day sit-down strike—the event which credibly can be considered the birth of the Middle Class; he ruminates on the Electoral College’s undemocratic underpinnings; and delilvers a jaw-dropping statistic on the number of Michigan voters who voted for public offices down to “Registrar of Deeds” and “Drain Commisioner”, yet did not cast a vote for the office of President of the United States.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
