On this episode of Matter of Fact, we focus on the scene on the ground in Puerto Rico in devastation left by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Soledad O’Brien checks in with Sean Williamson, who is part of disaster relief team Atlas Humanitarian Rescue, and Puerto Rican journalist Jay Fonseca for an assessment on the damage and the federal response. Then, Soledad visits the biggest manufacturing hub in the nation – Los Angeles. She meets with the founders of “Make in LA,” an incubator supporting manufacturing start-ups specializing in hardware or tech devices. And, co-founder of AOL Steve Case joins us in studio for a discussion on taking innovation out of Silicon Valley and bringing it to the rest of the country.
