One of the best

Thank you for your clarity, balance, curiosity, fairness, incisive probing, and reason. In this climate of partisan divide, I so appreciate an editor willing to risk having deep dive discussions with both sides of the aisle. We need more in media like him. Thanks again Aiden, for such stellar work.

Brings his bias

He definitely brings his bias to the interviews. Too bad. Not a great interviewer.
