What Happens When Reporter Names This County ‘The Worst Place To Live In America?’

What happens when a Washington Post reporter calls a county the worst place to live in America?

You have to be careful when you call someplace “the worst place to live in America.”

That’s what Washington Post reporter Chris Ingraham found out.

He thought he was completing a simple assignment in 2015, writing about a US Department of Agriculture study that ranked counties in the country on scenery and climate.

Ingraham took the data and concluded that Red Lake County, Minnesota was the worst place to live in America.

He could never anticipate the reaction that one line would inspire.

Even more so, how it would change his life forever.

CBS News’ Steve Hartman picks it up from here.
