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.

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