'This Week with George Stephanopoulos' — George Will on Fire!

NewsBusters has it, "George Will Schools Katrina Vanden Heuvel and Steve Rattner on Detroit's Collapse."

The whole clip is good, but the discussion of Detroit is at the last couple of minutes. You'll LOL at Katrina Vanden Hueval's shock that George Will would pinpoint decrepit, criminal, illiterate black culture as the source of Detroit's problems.
I find that really insulting to the people of Detroit. I think there is a serious discussion about the future of cities in a time of deindustrialization. But in many ways, Detroit has been a victim of market forces, and I think that what Steve said is so critical, that retirees and workers should not bear this. And this story should not be hijacked as one of about greedy, fiscal, public unions.
