So what if Jon is in love with himself. He can afford to be. He does a fantastic job-and doesn't always just accept what people say to him 'just to be polite or politically correct'....Keep up the stellar quality journalism John(and just in case you're wondering?? "No!", "I am not his mother") SDM.
Jon Faine is clearly the best interviewer, conversationalist, commentator this country has. Fair, humble, honest, inciteful and clever! Thanks abc!
The host is clearly in love with himself. He's worth putting up with for the great gests and co-hosts though. Some real gems here.
