Hedges Discusses, Debates 'Death of the Liberal Class'
Author and Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges recently made an appearance on Canadian television’s “The Agenda With Steve Paikin” to make his case about how the American liberal class and its institutions have spectacularly failed those whom they supposedly aimed to serve, taking no prisoners (et tu, Bill Clinton) and hitting on the major themes of his new book, the aptly titled “The Death of the Liberal Class,” while he was at it. Then, the host brought in a few other guests to join in a debate. Both the interview and the discussion are posted below. –KA
