Twilight of the Cambridge Elites

As promised, here is video of Chris Hayes interviewed by the Khan at MIT. Having been interviewed by Chris a few times, I have to say this was a great deal of fun. I think it's clear how much I admire Chris' book. But what you see him doing here (and on his show) is a kind of public intellectualism that before I saw it, I did not think was possible.


A quick shout to the Dr. Martin Luther King Visiting Professor and Scholar program, the department of Writing and Humanistic Studies, and the Knight Science Journalism program (and my hosts here of course) for making this happen.
