Two Fake Blonds: How Entertainment and Politics Collide

Punditry refers to an expert in a particular field. Why then are so many pundits of politics nothing more than entertainers?

Milo Yiannopoulos, Tomi Lahren, Trevor Noah, Bill Nye – all of these people have two things in common: They are political commentators dressed up as entertainers. None of them claim to be political experts yet they spend their careers talking politics and engaging politically, each with their own flare (a flare lacking substance).

Why are these characters popular? Why are they bad for their own causes? And what can be done about them?

All of this will be considered in this episode of Acerbic Review.
