Andrew Yang interview, Yang far outshines the host

Mehdi needs to shut up once his argument has been shot full of holes. Yang should not be forced into making on-the-record statements to answer Mehdi’s “Fox news/CNN”-style repetitive questions like “would a President Yang actually put Warren Buffet in jail.” Mehdi is such a self-obsessed interviewer that instead of hearing that Yang IS answering or explaining, he interrupts Yang trying to get the simplistic answer he is fishing for. Mehdi should concede the point.

Slice and Dice

You’ve interviewed some interesting people, but slice and dice their responses to suit your narrative. Your commentary on their response is longer than the “clip”(your words) responses. Try long form uncut interviews in order to be credible.
