Obama talks crime with 'Wire' creator

US President Barack Obama talked about crime and policing while heaping praise on the creator of the cult television series “The Wire” Thursday. Sitting side-by-side with former police reporter David Simon, Obama declared that the Baltimore-based series that focused on the drug trade was among his favorites. “I have got to tell you, I’m a huge fan of ‘The Wire,'” Obama said, delving into how the show came about and the problems that Simon witnessed at the Baltimore police department. “I think it’s one of the greatest, not just television shows, but pieces of art in the last couple of decades,” Obama said.
