This is shocking and devastating news. Michael’s humor, talent, insight and intelligence will be sorely missed. He struck me as a down to earth guy with a tremendous empathy for all around him.


what…the hell? …

Thank you Jake Johnson for this tribute.


Micheal was a giant of progressive politics in America. So wonderfully intelligent and compassionate. Such an important and powerful voice. This is devastating. My deepest condolences to his friends and family.


My paranoia won’t be satisfied until I know what he died of.

Another good one of ours gone, dammit.

This is an incalculable loss for the left. Michael was teaching a new generation about revolutionary history, theory, and internationalism. Hamba kahle comrade.


I started watching Michael’s show a few months ago. This is heartbreaking. He was so intelligent and knowledgable, but also very funny. RiP Michael.


If you didn’t hear, Michael’s sister informed the audience on the “Majority Report’s” tribute show that he died suddenly of a blood clot in his neck. She also added it was not Covid-19 induced, but that doctors had no idea what caused the clot.

Despite sloppy hits like JFK’s and Epstein’s, I don’t doubt that assassination technology is advancing right along with our paranoia.
