…His name is Roger Ebert. He reviews films for the Chicago Sun-Times and on television before health problems forced him off the air last year. Perhaps you’ve heard of him? Ebert came out on top in Forbes magazine’s survey of America’s top pundits:
“While the results show that plenty of cable talking heads like Bill O’Reilly, Lou Dobbs and Geraldo Rivera score highly, the most powerful pundit in America is veteran film critic Roger Ebert, who appeals to 70 percent of the demographic and whose long career makes him well known to well over half the population,” Forbes media writer Tom Van Riper wrote.
Joining Ebert in the list of America’s top pundits: Bill Maher, O’Reilly, Al Franken, Rivera, Rosie O’Donnell, Leonard Maltin, Greta Van Sustren, Lou Dobbs and Bill Walton.
Rush Limbaugh and Maureen Dowd are probably kicking themselves over this one.
