Also on the show: Comments CNN contributor Hilary Rosen about Mitt
Romney's wife induced the punditocracy to take up questions of women’s
work – and that's never pretty. But besides the silly things that were
said, what about some of the questions that weren't explored – like,
who's Hilary Rosen? Our guest says it's more Rosen's day job than her
off the cuff comments that warrants scrutiny. Journalist Lee Fang is
senior investigator at the Republic Report.org.
