How is Paxman not a journalist? He's one of the most informed presenters around! It's just a shame he doesn't do a bit more reporting like Snow does, but I guess he's pretty busy - he even seems to be on Newsnight less and less. That could suggest he may be moving on, and there was talk of him taking over Question Time or something else.
My comments did not mean that Paxman is not a journalist...he obviously is one, and has many qualifications and decades of experience to prove it.
However, he is a Scotophobe and just aint my cup of tea!
