Steve Cortes interview

For the most part I have enjoyed this show it has provided a relatively neutral and Unbiased view. I was however VERY disappointed with the Steve Cortes interview, you allowed him to say whatever he wanted without really pressing him on any of the things he said, and he said several things that were either not true or contentious.
