The Right's Top 25 Journalists?

A website called the Daily Beast has put together a slideshow of what they classified as the top 25 right-leaning journalists. Only one problem with their list. Very few of the people on the list are what I would call journalists. There are quite a few also I have never heard of, not that that means anything, but you would think the names would have popped up from time to time.

Michelle Malkin manages to walk in both arenas, pundit and journalist, as does the emerging Andrew Brietbart, but talking heads like Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, etc. are a far cry from what most would consider a journalist.
The list below is a distillation of responses canvassed from 50 academics, politicians, journalists, and a few unclassifiable (but wise) friends of The Daily Beast.
