New NBC News special anchor Maria Shriver served as a co-host last night on “All In with Chris Hayes'” full-hour poverty special.
“He threw his heart into it, he threw his mind into it, he threw his soul into it, he threw his spirit into it,” Shriver said, referencing her father Sargent Shriver’s role in the war on poverty.
She also thanked Hayes for correcting the record that suggests the fight has been a failure.
The former “Dateline” correspondent stayed on as a co-host with Hayes throughout the show, interviewing an array of guests on the issue of poverty.
She also partnered with the Center for American Progress on a report that investigates the main drivers of poverty, which included less opportunity for women.
