What’s With All The “Pundit” Bloggers?

June 20, 2007

…and why do they all seem to lean right?

I’ll admit, I noticed this early on when I started this blog.  In fact, I came across so many of them that I decided to give them their own section in my sidebar (see “Pundits Anyone?”).  Here’s the list:

Now, I know a few of those are more popular than others, and at least a couple of them seem to be defunct and have moved.  I think its pretty clear that there is sort of a “Pundit” phenomenon going on, however.  Can anyone explain why there doesn’t seem to be any leftys among them*?

Anyway, I guess I mention this because I stumbled upon another one today, AcePundit.com (who, for the record, claims to be an independent libertarian).  I’ll add more to the list as I discover them.

*If you spot a lefty “Pundit” blogger, or if there is one on that list that I missed, please let me know in the comments.  Actually, let me know if you spot any other “Pundit” blogger not on the list, drop a comment (I’ll give you and/or your blog a hat tip in the post).

Update:  Commentor Triguy76 points out that there is a free hosting service called punditpending.com (which I was completely unaware of).  I think we’re going to exclude those, unless there are particular bloggers that use the service whose handles or blogs are labeled as “______ pundit” or some similar variation.
