Actually, I just reviewed my journal. On 4/25/19, I was told that we were never to pursue Andrew for an interview on our show (along with several others). The list of candidates was dictated, but the reasons for allowing them or not were not explained.

(Back in 2019, there was controversy over whether Andrew Yang’s mic was cut during the various debates that took place on MSNBC.)
