More often than not there are multiple sides and angles to every story, punditry exposes and makes accessible these sides to the average person.

Punditry is nothing new or even that dirty compared to earlier american politics. We are a bit more exposed to it because 24 hour news stations need to fill time and keep pulling in viewers when there is no real news to cover. I would never call what they do journalism. But it does give the viewers something they either identify with or something they can point to and say, "I stand in opposition to all these people represent."

There seems to be a direct relationship between the increase in punditry in the media with the polarization of the political system. The center is rapidly draining to the right and left because the talking heads push their audience further to the edges of the political spectrum.

Modern punditry blurs the lines between what is straight-edge, actual journalism based on available facts and opinionated talking points disseminated from political think tanks, PACs and other agenda driven organizations.

Average or below-average citizens may be mistaken for experts in the field, leading consumers to alter thier opinions based on the agenda of an uneducated individual.
