Vid summary of dem response to SOTU?

Long time listener, first time caller.

There are some good video summaries of SOTU (Vox, NBC, WSJ), but I’m not finding any of the Kennedy/democratic response. Has anyone seen a good 2-3 minute factual video? Looking to show it to 8th graders in about three hours.



@tedder the New York Times has clips and full versions in their video section.

Video - The New York Times

Pet and Matt, both of those are full vids (almost 13 mins). I’ll keep my eyes out for a good summary vid.

I know a number of different legislators etc. had things to say. Might be worth taking a few notes and comparing statements and how they were presented/what they focused on.

I know they’re 8th graders and I definitely shouldn’t be sitting here trying to write your lesson plan… but it’s never too early to take look at spin, even within the same party/group, and how it affects what they hear and the information they consume.


(didn’t watch it; just assuming this is correct and in full)
