In a live webcast Thursday [Sept. 1] at noon, professors Carol and Eric Meyers will respond to viewer questions about the charged combination of biblical archeology, politics and media.
During a live, interactive “Office Hours” webcast Thursday, Sept. 1, at noon Eastern Time on the Duke Ustream channel, the Meyerses will answer your questions about their archeological work, Jewish history and controversies surrounding artifacts linked to biblical history.

Here’s my question-
I’m wondering why you think it is that the sort of pseudo-archaeology made popular on shows on the Discovery Channel seems to capture the public’s attention to the extent that false information eclipses accurate and responsible scholarship.
Thanks very much.
