This week on Matter of Fact, Soledad O’Brien goes to St. Louis to hear the story of Fred Watson, who is suing the city of Ferguson for violating his civil rights. A list of minor traffic violations, which he calls unwarranted, lost him his job, his house and his security clearance. Then, Soledad O’Brien sits down with former Missouri GOP chairman John Hancock and former Missouri Democratic chairman Michael Kelly to talk about Missouri’s embattled governor and the potential impact on national politics. Plus, correspondent Diane Roberts visits Lawrence, Massachusetts, New England’s first minority-majority city. And, the early bird gets the worm, as Matter of Fact takes a look at the headquarters of “Wake Up To Politics,” a political newsletter with thousands of readers written by 16-year-old Gabe Fliesher.
