I used to hafta read the Post for, more or less, professional reasons. The opinion pages could be skipped, happily.
I figured out a long time ago that pundits usually know less than I do about things I care about. If I don't care about something, I don't care what the pundits say about it.
Still, most of us turn to the punditocracy not to be informed, but to have our own opinions confirmed. Being wrong or being a liar won't get you tossed if those folks are your audience.
