Top 10 Best Political Commentators

This is a list of the best political commentators. Not politicians, but political commentators. The difference is that a politician is someone who is professionally involved in politics, as a holder of an elected office. While a political commentator is someone who constantly comments about politics without actually holding any position in the office. This list solely focuses on political commentators and not actual politicians. Hence, politicians are ineligible for this list.

John Oliver John William Oliver is an English comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host. Oliver started his career as a stand-up comedian, both in the United Kingdom and United States.

Oliver is hilarious and tackles important issues head-on.

Speaking truth on real issues, and offers solutions!

Sam Seder

Great commentator -- one of the best on youtube.

Ben Shapiro Benjamin Aaron Shapiro (born January 15, 1984) is an American conservative political commentator, writer and lawyer. He has written seven books, the first being 2004's Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America's Youth, which he started writing when he was 17 years old.

Ben uses debate tactics far more than he uses actual reasoning, that's why he can debate anxious college kids just fine but can't hold up under real pressure.

By the pure logical standard of rational thought, Shapiro is hard to assail. I measure him by the intellectual integrity of his reasoning - and by that standard, he is easily one of the thoughtful and objective commentator on the political scene. I don’t agree with him all his conclusions, but his rational thought sharpens my own. To me that is the real value of any commentator, or thinker, for that matter. I challenge you to challenge his logic, just as I do every week.

While Ben is very conservative I think he is more objective about news and honestly tries to represent both sides of the story.

Love the ability to articulate a clear argument for his stance

Rachel Maddow Rachel Anne Maddow is an American television host and political commentator. A liberal, Maddow hosts The Rachel Maddow Show, a nightly television show on MSNBC, and serves as the cable network's special event co-anchor alongside Brian Williams.

I feel that she is much more of an educator than a commentator.

I learn something each night that I watch

Even and balanced reporting with a leftward lean

Entertaining news that’s easy to understand.

Stephen Colbert Stephen Tyrone Colbert is an American comedian, writer, producer, actor, media critic, and television host.

Witty, high level of integrity and assesses arguments in a consistent manor, through logical reasoning.

Dennis Prager
Brandon Tatum
Kyle Kulinski

Has been very sharp with his predictions since he is a sponge for relevant statistics. Makes very convincing arguments and can deliver a laugh without being overly harsh. Very fair, one of the best, most convincing voices.

Has debunked many pseudo- intellectuals like Ben Shapiro and Dave Ruben. Always presents facts and doesn't resort to talking fast to sound smart

Entertaining and has very convincing arguments

He is the best political commentator on Youtube

Michael Brooks

Incredibly insightful.

Paul Joseph Watson

What he has to say concerns very troubling truths. Speaking truth in a world of liars is dangerous and without reward. He does it anyway.

No he's the worst. Alex Jones' little puppet. Lies all the time. His videos have 0% fact, 10% truth-twisting, 80% angry ranting and 10% pill-selling.

Candace is an elegant and provocative example of the awaking to Democratic racism through low expectations. Blexit is a powerful and exciting movement.

Need more women like her with the passion and willingness to take on hard subjects.

Sam Harris

A lot of what he says is objectively, factually wrong, gives wrong info about so many things with confidence.
Many fail to see his tactic of using circular arguments : opponent's claim is inconsistent because it contradicts the principle he thinks is true.
He completely fails to understand those concepts as he rejects without analysing the points in the first place. To him, if there's something you can't see, it doesn't exist.
Then he goes on with his denial of free will.
Believes killing of non-militant Afghans was morally right, says Hurricane Katrina killed people so that's a proof God doesn't exist - yep, that's his claim, even atheists slap their forehead at that.

Sam Harris is a great example of how first hand experience of the liberal thought bubble will push any thinking person to the center.
