Clip: 50 years of Washington Week: "Measured and objective"

It's very measured and objective in this day and age of the shouting and partisan bickering. It really presents a point of view from both sides that's very measured in this day and age. It's very informative. Less of the histrionics, less shouting--that's what I love about it.
