  • Just turned mean

    Anne McElvoy is an interesting interviewer, Jon Fasman is just a political talking head. Anne asks questions, sometimes too harshly, probing the topic. Jon just leads a dim one sided stream of words boarding on a rant. Keep Anne, dump Jon.

  • Bias and Smug

    Terrible show. The host Ann McElvoy is so Smug and have very biased view on issues. Contributing correspondents are not better either. Truly a terrible show. I expect better from the Economist. In contrast. Check and Balance is much much better.
