British scientists Richard Dawkins is a famous, some would say rather infamous, evolutionist. He is something of an arch-atheist too. He's published dozens of books examining the controversies in evolutionary and biological science. He also takes a keen interest in the public perception of science and the spread of anti-science.
He might also be remebered by many as being the late american scientist's Stephen J Gould's passionate antagonist, with the two exchanging criticisms of each other's theories in several of their books. Their debates allways seemed to be fruitful, and the two seemed to respect each other inspite of their disagreements.
Dr. Dawkin's is also the originator of the term 'memes' and a great popularizer of the successful term.

Anyone in the Edinburg area will be in for a treat when this occurs. Dawkin's is an interesting character, and I suspect that his views, perceived as quite arrogant by his critics, will draw many of those critics to vocally interject during the interview.

I wouldn't call this news. Just an advertisement. However, reporting on the debate after it happens could be very newsworthy.

Its not an advertisement, at least not in intent, anymore than any news article about an upcomming event is an advertisement.

"News" is a "meme".

Dawkins has more intelligent pronouncements, than, say, the smirking chimp, but it is by virtue of the smirking chimp's positional power to misuse intelligence services and destroy the global peace "process" that the smirking chimp is covered as "news" when he opens his mouth to prevaricate.
