As the voters in six more states head to the polls today for the Democrats’ Presidential Primary, one thing is for sure: you rarely see any mainstream media coverage on the issues that affect local residents of these primary states – only grand media platitudes like ‘watch white women’ for Bernie Sanders in Michigan, or, Joe Biden’s campaign ‘resurrection’ foretells a win in Missouri.

One Flint resident, Melissa Mays, is seen here slamming Biden and one of his high-profile supporters, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, for not doing enough about the water crisis that has plagued her city since 2014:

According to the media outlet Status Coup, who filmed the interview, Mays “has been one of the leading Flint residents and activists fighting for justice for forgotten Flint. Her and her three sons have been made ill from Flint’s poisoned water.”

Sanders won the Michigan Democratic Primary in 2016, defeating Hillary Clinton in an apparent upset at the time. But he’s also getting hit with criticism for his vote against a 2016 resolution to fund Flint water infrastructure improvements.

There are 352 delegates for the taking among the six states (Michigan, Washington, Missouri, Mississippi, Idaho and North Dakota), with Michigan representing the largest stash of delegates at 125.

The overarching message from the Democrats and their media partners: if you’re speaking out against the establishment, you can just shut up.
