Neither  trained theologians nor ordained.

1)  Von Hildebrand and Amerio were trained philosophers and far above Davies, McLeod, Ferrara, etc.

2) Just because they did it doesn't make it right.

3) In the case of McLeod, there is a difference promoting what the Church has already taught as authentically Catholic (traditional Catholicism) and what people believe to be authentically Catholic (the EWTN version of things).  The former we know to be authentically Catholic because the Church has said so; the latter, we don't know because the Church hasn't said "EWTN is the appropriate interpretation of post-Conciliar 'Catholicity'".

4) There is also a difference between making an intellectual argument and selling something.  Von Hildebrand, Amerio, and Davies for sure made intellectual arguments.  Too often I see apologists engaged in not selling Catholicism, but in selling their version of Catholicism.
