A poll conducted by research group E-poll for Forbes magazine of the 60 leading "pundits" in America has ranked Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert at the head of the list. Said Forbes: "While the results show that plenty of cable talking heads like Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs and Geraldo Rivera score highly, the most powerful pundit in America is veteran film critic Roger Ebert, who appeals to 70 percent of the [young-adult] demographic and whose long career makes him well known to well over half the population." Responded Ebert: "Rather astonishing."
