Last night, Bill Moyers 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 Moyers has been chronicling since 1992. Colbert peppered Moyers with questions about personal responsibility and the need for a middle class in the first place.
