Bloggingheads: Corn and Wright Discuss the 47 Percent Story


On Friday’s Bloggingheads, David Corn and The Wright Show‘s Robert Wright discussed what in God’s name Mitt Romney was thinking when he made his now-infamous 47 percent comments. Corn also explained how he got the scoop. Was it his biggest moment as a journalist? “There’s nothing I’ve done that has reached this many people this fast.”

P.S. Wright also compares Corn to Harriet Beecher Stowe.
