Bogus Biased Information

I just listened to episode 131 and it sounded like the same info given in "Reefer Madness". The physician interviewed had an obvious politial motivation and the interviewer didn't challege any of the doctors weak and misinformed argument. If you are truely trying to inform a population you need to interview a unbiased expert or at least interview an expert on the opposite side of the doctor that you intereviewed. Shoddy jounalism I say.
