Steven Pinker: Is the World Actually Getting Better?

In this week's UpFront, Hassan challenges author and Harvard professor Steven Pinker on his new book, "Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress," in which he argues that data shows the world is becoming a better place.
