More Praise for the American Pundit Contributors and Winners from the Contest Judges:
"A great writer can lift all boats, and the American Pundit competition shines a light on journalists who can steer you through the rising swamp of political opinion and misinformation."
Turk Pipkin, Writer, Director, Founder of the Nobelity Project
"While enjoying these amateur pundits' work, I found myself wanting to thank them for their service. After all, our democracy depends on thought creators as well as job creators, and cause fighters as well as war fighters."
Jay Heinrichs, Author of "Thank You for Arguing"
"In newsrooms, there's a phrase we use when a reporter quotes the same circle of sources over and over again: the usual suspects. Sadly, the same can be said about bylines that populate print and online Op-Ed pages. There's a real need for fresh opinion-writing voices, and that's why I was excited to help judge the Allvoices pundit contest."
R.B. Brenner, Lecturer in the graduate journalism program at Stanford University
"The American Pundit contest showed that many bright, focused and committed people have engaged like never before in the public debate... The winners and honorable mentions in this contest did a solid job of making their cases in a clear, thoughtful manner."
Bob Salladay, Managing Editor at the Center for Investigative Reporting
