Introducing the Hack 30

Our definitive list of the worst pundits in America. We're counting them down all day today, tomorrow and Wednesday

Over the next three days, War Room will list (and diagnose) the worst pundits in America.

Think of the War Room Hack 30 as an all-star team -- or a rogues gallery. These are the most predictable, banal, intellectually dishonest and all-around hacky newspaper columnists, cable news shouting heads and political opinion-mongers working today. We compiled the list by reading blogs and Op-Ed sections and watching 24-hour cable news channels for about a decade, and then listing about 200 people who rarely fail to annoy us. We cut the list down to 30 people whose continued employment most baffles us, and then we ranked them in order of shamelessness.

We'll be counting down the bottom 30 all day today, tomorrow and Wednesday, so check back often.
