Who wants an adult conversation?

May 15, 2015

Last Tuesday, Georgetown University hosted a panel on poverty, with President Obama, AEI president Arthur Brooks, and political scientist Robert Putnam. Transcript here. As one aside, Obama pointed out, quite accurately, the way Fox News portrays the poor. Fox took umbrage and Jon Stewart stepped in with the appropriate skewering.

Which has made for quite popular noise on the intertubes. All well and good. Except, as Dara Lind points out, that it completely misses the meat of what was discussed.
