Last night, Bill dropped by The Colbert Report to talk about the July 9 Frontline documentary, “Two American Families,” featuring two hard-working Milwaukee families whose stories of economic hardship and perseverance Bill has been chronicling since 1992. Colbert peppered Bill with questions about personal responsibility and the need for a middle class in the first place.

Given this was also the week the Supreme Court invalidated a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, Colbert couldn’t let Bill go without a few pointed questions about it, especially since Bill was “in the room” during the Act’s development and passage in 1965.
