She's allowed to be a naysayer because it doesn't hurt the Bigfoot following as they still have 3 proponents on the show.
So, I feel she has been given the most allowance in being skeptical and no worry about it affecting her job.
Besides anyone who will disagree with MM on national TV gets a gold star!
I have seen decent hardcore skeptics on various Bigfoot series (Monster Quest etc) or documentary-type shows who flatly disagree with or offer alternative explanations for or intelligently question-- facts, information, evidence, and reports offered by footers.
So, imo, while the paranormal/cryptid get to be the loudest/most visible with the most air time or number of shows, some have been "fair" with a skeptical POV . It's just "Who listens to the skeptic?" The ratings are in the reality and possibility of monsters and their kin.
