Echos from Email

This sounds like something I read in a Saylor email once or twice. Who is keeping track of the predictions and prognostications of our "experts" and rating them on the ONE thing we value them for...their expertise?

Sounds like a great idea for a blog. You 'd need three groups of staffers to watch CNN, FOX, and MSNBC all day, and then probably 1 or 2 more to read and highlight the major editorials. From this you could glean a pundit's position, evaluate it's consistency (i.e. have the changed their tune to suit the reality on the ground) with perhaps a mitigating "mea culpa" factor for honest mind-changers, and then follow up on the positions as concensus forms around an issue.

You could rank them numerically and begin to weed out the dopes.
