  •  I can't think of a better interviewer than Jon.... (4+ / 0-)

    The Alan Simpson interview aside (along with one or two others over the years), Jon is by the far the most likely interviewer to ask penetrating questions, follow up on vague/bullshit responses and retort with dead-on, progressive, common sense jibes where needed.

    Whereas most interviewers seem transparently petrified to push back for fear of angering their guests, Jon seems to recognize that his primary allegiance is to his audience that wants him to call out the bullshit. He seems to feed on it. Good for us.
