It’s, uh, really no mystery why conservative pundits are so eager to toe the company line.

Hell, for that money, I’d be writing Very Thoughtful Thoughts about the President’s nationality, too.

More seriously, though, if you create a system in which there are no disincentives for dishonesty but there are big cash payouts for ideological purity, regardless of the relative merits of a given position, this is the kind of thing you very naturally end up with.
