Forbes Pundit List Gives Thumbs Up to Ebert

Congratulations, Mr. Ebert.

by | September 25, 2007 | Comments

Not only does Roger Ebert have the most famous thumbs in America, but — according to Forbes — he’s now our most powerful pundit.

Though the term “pundit” is most frequently used to describe a political commentator, the definition of the term is far less specific; as excerpted in the Forbes article, it’s meant to describe “a person who makes comments or judgments, especially in an authoritative manner; critic or commentator.” Ebert certainly fits that bill; he’s been writing for the Chicago Sun-Times for 40 years, reviewing films on television for over three decades, and has written a shelf full of books, not to mention his co-writing credits on Beyond the Valley of the Dolls and Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens.

Oh yeah, and then there’s the Pulitzer — and the star on the Walk of Fame, and the honorary degrees.

For more on the Forbes list — which also made room for Ebert’s fellow film critic Leonard Maltin, as well as the usual suspects, including Al Franken, Bill O’Reilly, and Rosie O’Donnell — click on through to the link below.
