Politico notes the absurdity of assigning most talking heads with the label: "strategist."  As you may have guessed, the real strategists don't know who most of the TV strategists are. 

On a different note, the column goes on to interview a long-time cable TV producer, who admits:

“When I was coming along, we never looked at their picture,” she says. “I was talking on the phone to see if they were a good talker and if they had credentials. Now they just want to see if they were good-looking.”

... which explains why I haven't been on in a while.
