Ken Bone, the most famous undecided voter of the 2016 election, seeks out a balanced diet of news, making sure he sees all sides.

Ken Bone, who writes a column for TheLatest.com, is about the friendliest, most reasonable, clear-headed guy you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. 

If you don't recall, Ken Bone was invited to ask a question of both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton during a CNN debate in 2016. 

He came across as so normal that he seemed abnormal, and Ken "went viral" as people urged him to run for president.  Within a few days, he had a Twitter following of over 200,000.

During a recent interview with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, Ken gave a great, concise description of TheLatest.com, included here (one minute and six seconds):

My colleague at TheLatest.com, Connor Ford, clipped this video from YouTube in order to create this shorter snippet.  One of our writers, Alison Martin, originally reached out to Ken to see if he would write for THE LATEST.  We are obviously big fans.

The original interview, shown on The Young Turks, was 22 minutes, shown here on YouTube:

There is one tiny correction I want to make.  Ken said we carry Brietbart as a source.  Actually, we decided long ago to not use this source.  My impression of Breitbart is that it enjoys stirring up trouble and sowing division at a time when we need to come together as a country. 

I know many feel the same way about Fox News, but so many conservatives like it I think, in order to maintain our political neutrality, we need to keep Fox.

Even if you are a wild-eyed liberal, I think you should check in on what the conservatives are saying so as to understand the bigger picture.  Same thing in reverse: Conservatives should try and understand where liberals are coming from.

Ken Bone is obviously a busy guy.  In addition to all his interviews (Google Ken Bone find his interviews with Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmel and the original clip from CNN), Ken does a podcast called The Ken Bone Show. 

Here's a link to the podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdR8QhmGiBg

At THE LATEST, we consider ourselves lucky to have Ken as a member of our writing team.  He's just so darned reasonable, and we like that.

Thank you, Ken, for helping get the word out about TheLatest.com. 

We'll keep showing all sides, giving you plenty to talk and write about.

If Ken ever does run for president, he'll probably win in a landslide.
