Personal Quote:

[on his desire to produce more in-depth analysis of news events] You see something that's a little bit weird, you start looking into it, and then three days in we have the same meeting which is basically going, "Holy shit!

Trivia:

On his father's side, John is the great-great-grandson of The Rev. William Boyd Carpenter (1841-1918), who was a court chaplain to Queen Victoria and the Bishop of Ripon. He was from a prominent family that produced many Church of England clergy. See more »
