Pundit is closely related to maven. See my previous post on mavens.
The definition of a pundit is:
An expert, authority or learned person. Usually a pundit makes comments or judgments, especially in an authoritative manner.
Most people who are called pundits give their opinions through mass media. This would include radio and television talk show hosts and “talking heads” on the political shows on television.
In the maven post, I asked if you knew any mavens. Do you know any pundits personally? I guess in some respects, I am a pundit in some of the writing I do for the Berthoud Surveyor newspaper.
