The Doubleheader: David Brooks Responds to Reddit Questions

BY Hari Sreenivasan  February 4, 2011 at 7:54 PM EST

We run a tight ship here in public media land, but nevertheless Mark Shields was late to the party Friday. He missed the bus or boat or whatever, but New York Times columnist David Brooks fielded questions by himself from our viewers in the Reddit community.

We discussed the state of punditry, what issues are likely to dominate the 2012 presidential race, his shift in recent years toward communitarianism and some recommended reading.

In the coming weeks, we’ll make sure to do a session with just Mark Shields. Thank you for watching.
