How Al Jazeera America Reported The Flint Water Crisis - A Year Ago

A year ago this week, Al Jazeera's Bisi Onile-Ere sought answers from Flint authorities about concerns over residents' water.



Former Chicago Tribune editor James Warren writes for the Poynter Institute, a media training organization, that the national media blew the Flint story - but leaves out Al Jazeera.


AdWeek, meanwhile, reports that Al Jazeera got the story because Onile-Ere previously covered Flint for five years.


Al Jazeera hired Onile-Ere, she said in 2013, "because of my expertise in Detroit."




Comments welcome.
