Why Martha Kearney is a pain in the butt

1. She's a whiner.
2. She does not respond to the answers of her interviewee. It's as if she has all her questions written down in advance and is going to proceed with them come what may.
3. Every damn question is preceded with "Do you think that ..."

There are plenty of splendid female presenters on the BBC including Ritula Shah and Lise Doucet (although the latter speaks too quickly sometimes), while the World Service has lots of them, including Anne-Marie Sieghart and Clare Balderson. So why is damn Martha given the plum of World at One?
