Returning to “Q&A” is David Luhnow, one of Jay’s favorite guests. Luhnow is the Latin America bureau chief of the Wall Street Journal. The conversation took place in Mexico City, where Luhnow is based – and where he did much of his growing up. The two discuss Mexico, of course: its new populist president; its horrendous murder rate; its prospects. They also talk about Venezuela, Cuba, and other key countries – not excluding the United States. Further, they talk about the news: How do people get it? How has the news business changed? As Jay says in his introduction, David Luhnow is “one of the sanest individuals you’ll ever meet, along with one of the most pleasant.”

    Interesting interview. Yes, as I’ve also been saying for awhile, I think that Venezuela is now a (bigger) Cuba (which has some oil revenue). Like Cuba they have jettisoned a part of their population which allows them to do better than if they had to run their society with a full population. As usual, Jay’s podcasts would be so much better if he just stayed away from Trump. We know what you think Jay and it gets incredibly boring to hear you throw in some snark. For someone who actually knows about real totalitarianism and corruption in some many spots around the world, you’d think you’d recognize this. Luckily Jay is a good interviewer and does indeed have great guests.
