bad evolutionary metaphors

I turned on Radio 4 last night and heard the second half of a programme about mass extinctions. (Around 9:15 pm - 9:30)

My problem with it was that those species which have become extinct were described as losers and new species were described as winners.

It was gratuitous, adding nothing.

Surely this is adequate evidence that the writer (and complicit presenter?) is a fool and should not be given such a spot.
