HW Pick: Van Jones Schools Jeffrey Lord On CNN (video)

van jones1We wanted to share this teachable moment with you an e-mail we received from Harlem fave Van Jones today that he calls his “…proudest moment on TV.”

It happened last night during Super Tuesday coverage, when Mr. Jones took the high ground and stood up for “common decency and against racist terror” in a conversation with CNN co-debate anchor Jeffrey Lord.

Mr. Jones did not yell, scream, he was factual and spoke personally. Here’s a video of the first round below:
