President Obama spoke at a press conference this afternoon on a variety of topics - we broadcasted the address live.
Here's a quick link tutorial on two topics he addressed:
- The "fiscal cliff": here's a great series of stories that break it all down from NPR.
- The Gen. Petraeus debacle: a clear who's who and what's what quick guide from NPR - or, if you're more visual, diagrams of the whole situation from New York Magazine (the "Pentagon of Love") or BuzzFeed's uniform-themed version.
