'Duck Dynasty' star's comments lead to new skirmish in America's culture wars

'Duck Dynasty' is a reality TV show. Unlike reality, it is a carefully-produced, semi-scripted and heavily-promoted entertainment vehicle. The stars appear as carefully produced versions of themselves. So when Phil Robertson made controversial comments to GQ magazine about gays, African Americans and non-Christian religions plenty of people took notice. That led to A&E suspending him from the hit show. Anderson takes a closer look at the fallout.

Anderson discussed the uproar over Phil Robertson's comments with social pundit and author Dan Savage, along with New York TImes op-ed columnists Charles Blow and Ross Douthat.
