Explanation

Crucial to this question is the word chary, which is essentially synonymous with wary. If the pundit is worried about appearing something, it is probably the opposite of what he or she actually does, which is be “diplomatic.” You’re thus looking for an anonym for “diplomatic.” Acerbic, which means “scathing or bitter,” is best.

Acerbic.
