Yang interview spot on

“Deconstructed”. The name of this podcast perfectly describes what happens in the course of the show: deconstruction! Mehdi Hasan’s interview of Andrew Yang was no different than any of the many other interviews I have heard him conduct. His style is like a high speed car chase full of sharp turns sudden stops— fueled by his profound and thrilling skepticism, a skepticism to which he subjects even his own conclusions. Yang, by the way, handled himself masterfully throughout this challenging interview. I respected Yang’s answers as I respected Mehdi’s questions which altogether really gave me something to think about.

Andrew Yang “interview”: What a train wreck of an interview & interviewer!

Shut up Mehdi & let your guest finish their answer BEFORE YOU START TALKING! What a train wreck of an interview. Mehdi should be ashamed and embarrassed by his conduct with Andrew Yang. Perhaps doing research about the the subject and the interviewee before an interview. Mehdi was completely clueless on the subject and was belligerent to cover that cluelessness. Mehdi owes Andrew Yang an apology. To Mehdi and The Intercept, I’m embarrassed for both.
