Expressing an extreme view and then acting moderately does not necessarily 
mean a balanced approach. I think that's fairly subjective, and impossible to 
prove disprove. The situation we currently have is those who know or are 
friends of the DAM saying he's good at his job, is balanced etc., but then

otherwise. Obviously both groups are skewed one way or the other, and I do 
not know either group personally.
