Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Amateur" has a strong negative connotation.  "Expert and Informed" says it all, or enough.

And you ain't got no main verb in the first sentence.  ;-)

c/b:  thinking, writing, reasoning ...?

Second sentence: Why add the "many" to "vital?"  "many vital issues" is weaker than "vital issues."  

"appear on the media radar" -- c/b: become common knowledge, become common problems, hit the mainstream,  become common concern, hit the front page, go prime time, come to common awareness, sit in your living room, scream for attention, demand action, demand attention, require action/attention, become total fucking & flaming disasters, plug your toilets.

(Ok, those last 2 are silly.)

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
