Dynastic Politics and Dynastic Punditry
According to Glenn Greenwald, “It's time to embrace American royalty.” After looking at his examples, I realized that dynastic politics can be found across the political spectrum whereas dynastic punditry (for example, Bill Kristol, Tucker Carlson, John Podhoretz, Christopher Buckley, and Jonah Goldberg) tends to be found on the right. This might mean it's harder for someone to break into MSM punditry on the right side of the political spectrum but it's equally difficult for both sides to break into politics.
Meanwhile, Nate Silver posted a statistical analysis showing a decline in nepotism. This might mean it's easier to break into politics nowadays.
