Grilled pundit

US Election pundits get their failed predictions grilled.

It’s fun, if a bit mean-spirited.

Part of the role of punditry, for most of them, is pushing particular barrows. Their predictions are more often than not want they WANT to happen, not what will happen. They hope that by predicting it, it will come true.

Trouble is, since most pundits are largely talking to similar people, and the punditry circles, they have very little impact on what most voters actually do.
