Steve Jobs’s Widow in Exclusive Interview on NBC Tonight


Laurene Powell Jobs, from Rock Center with Brian Williams interview. Airs Friday, April 12 at 10 P.M., 9 P.M. CDT

For the first time since Steve Jobs died, his widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, will speak on TV — in this case, in an interview on Rock Center with Brian Williams this evening, in just a few hours.

It took the country’s tumultuous battle over immigration reform to finally coax the famously quiet widow from her silence after a year and a half.

Powell Jobs collaborated with filmmaker Davis Guggenheim on The Dream is Now, a film about the plight of young undocumented immigrants, which she will talk about during the interview — along with, no doubt, revealing some insight about Steve.

Here’s a little snippet from Powell Jobs during the interview:

And so we need all of these brains. We need all that energy. And indeed, you know, there are estimates that integrating dreamers into our economy will give a boost of over $300 billion. So it’s an expansive act. There’s not zero sum here.

For more, there’s a short clip here.

The interview airs at 10 P.M. (or 9 P.M. CDT, for those of you in the middle).

  • Robert X

    They are illegal immigrants. Sorry but no.

  • Wirehedd

    They are illegal immigrants. Sorry but no.

    So where do you feel the several trillion it would cost to deport them will come from? Otherwise the curent mission of the Republicans to drive the country into the ground so badly nobody would want to live there is working seeing as the immigration numbers are now in the negative as the people aware of what’s happening make for the lifeboats and head for countries where warmongers and “poor haters” aren’t either in charge or obstructing those who are.

    So? where is it coming from? Who will do the work nobody else is willing or able to do? The fact is that the “dreamers” contribute more than they receive. Those who aren’t aware of this really need to get their facts straight. The REAL facts and not the propagandist nonsense being spewed by the liars and thieves running the right and living punchlines like that idiot Joe Arpaio and his neoslavemaster attitude.
