Agreed. That's a problem in general on BHTV (although it's certainly not exclusive to it): too many journalists and not enough experts. I personally don't care what journalists/writers think. Their role should be to interview people who have informed opinions, not to convey their own anecdotes, off-the-top-of-their-head misunderstandings, and second-hand sound bites. A journalist can become an expert (eg, Bob on evolutionary psychology, Ahmed Rashid on Pakistan), but it's rare.

This problem is especially vivid on "Science Saturday" -- John and George are great (they originally got me into BHTV), but when they interview real scientists, the difference in quality is clear.
