America's Test Kitchen frustrates me

I admire their website and magazines, and I watch their TV shows frequently. However, sometimes they do things that make no sense to me at all. On today's episode they were roasting a chicken in a dutch oven. The first thing Julia did was to take out the giblet bag and throw it directly into the trash. Then she grabbed the fat lobe from the cavity and threw it away in disgust, exclaiming "there's no flavor here." Okay, so maybe those parts had no use in their recipe, but to treat them as trash is irresponsible, in my opinion.

I could list other examples, such as, I think they generally use way too many disposable kitchen supplies like aluminum foil.

Does anyone else find their kitchen practices aggravating?
