Sinceratron: a media figure, especially a talk show host, paid for their ability to exude an aura of authoritative advice and sincerity.

Authoritative is better than Authoritarian. The former is to be based upon principles and reason while the latter is based upon power over others. Authority is important to Organization which is the only way to get things done. It is not bad in itself. Like a tool, it can be used for accomplishing good or bad. So, whatever the Organization is organized around, the Authority, determines if it is good or bad.

Sinceratrons are paid for their ability to exude an aura of authoritative advice and sincerity in media. It could be a talk show host, some other media figure, or it could be a perceived authority anywhere. Being paid to appear sincere somehow feels insincere ultimately. Especially in the big time media. They might actually be sincere, but no one can know if they are acting sincere to get paid either.
