Tony shares what he’s seen in and around Lahaina, what those affected need from the rest of the country, and what next steps are necessary to hold people accountable for unforgivable mistakes that may have cost lives.

    This was a really informative report on what is actually happening on the ground in Maui and Lahaina. Tony Kinnett, a former teacher, 28 year old reporter is doing the work that very few “real reporters” are doing. He is thorough and honest and tells the story that very few are telling. Most of the right wing media seems content to take a well deserved shot at Biden, but stops there. The left wing media only want to talk about climate change. Meanwhile, the people of Lahaina who have lost everything, and the people of Maui who, though they didn’t suffer in the fire, are likely to suffer with the loss of tourism, are all taking a terrible hit while talking heads and “influencers” tell potential tourists to stay away.

    I spent a week in Lahaina back in the early 1990s. I was totally taken with the island and its people, and loved Lahaina. I have very beautiful memories of that visit, and mourn the loss of that historic city. This interview is the best I have heard so far, the most honest and the most informative. Please take the time to listen. Thank you Inez for hosting it.

    Agree with Eugene. Even with a week’s delay, it was still more information than I’ve heard from other new providers.
