Who Is Your Favorite Anchor or Host?

We had plenty of quality time with our favorite anchors and hosts in 2008 — from the campaign trail and the presidential debates to weekly, morning, and nightly news shows. Which of these friendly faces has the wit, voice, reputation and that certain something special that makes you put down the remote?
This year has been especially thrilling for fans of politics and news, so I can't wait to find out all your favorite things in 2008!

How about a poll for who you like the least? LOL Mine would Katie Couris. Ugggh. Grrrr. She makes my skin crawl for some reason. And why wasn't there a choice for Brian Williams? He's cool.

"...Fox ~ thus much of what they report is either untrue or a bad case of jumping the gun before the facts are in." Because folks like Chris Matthews are the model of journalistic ethics and objectivity. Even the press (was it the New York Times?) finally admitted that election coverage was biased, pro-Obama. *After* the election, of course.

Momma, like him or not, he does get big ratings. I'm partial to cranky folks, though, when they're mostly balanced and well-intentioned. Too many news folks are colorless sycophants.

Jillness, like I said, Shep does work for Fox ~ thus much of what they report is either untrue or a bad case of jumping the gun before the facts are in. Both he and David Bloom reporting for the Today show from his "Bloom mobile" in 2003 in Iraq were so interesting and humorous, that I actually took 3-days off from work just to watch it non-stop as well as CNN and MSNBC. Shep just had a genuinely funny personality and way of presenting information; unfortunately he is forced to tone it down for the news. The part where they found a video from Al Jazeera to try to show that Iraq still had an army...SOMEWHERE was pretty comical ~ And was hilariously expounded upon in a play called Saturday's Voyeur in Utah that year or the next.

That's weird, Mina--I can't see your comment, either. I only know what you said because it showed up in my Gmail.

Haha, Jilliness, my fiance and I were JUST watching the Today show this morning and she really does do that! When I saw it on The Soup I thought it was a one time thing, but nope...GOOD MORNING!

"Shepard Smith is with out a doubt my favorite newsman...His coverage during the beginning of the war with Iraq and Hurricane Katrina was incredibly interesting" Wow, that is very interesting. I was really amazed during the beginning of the Iraq war when I heard him report numerous times that WMDs had been found, or that Saddam was dead...when it was completely not true. I am not trying to be argumentative, because we are all entitled to our opinions, and he does have a engaging personality...I just find it very facinating that we would get different impressions from the same coverage! :) That is the beauty of different perspectives! ;)

Good Morning, Good Morning, In the news this morning, Good Morning... :rotfl: Had to throw that out for all of the Soup fans! Thanks for the laugh, Ann! :) My favorite is Rachel Maddow and then Chuck Todd (love how he focuses on facts and stats). Since they weren't options, I went with Anderson. I thought he really illuminated the tragic reality of Katrina in a way that no other journalist did. He has come quite a way since his days on Channel One!

Thanks, Liberty, that's good to know. I didn't catch the distinction. But Megyn's primary job is co-anchor of the weekday morning news. Plus, she has a background in journalism, she isn't just a talking head.,2933,133828,00.html

"I can't respect Ifill after her horrendous attempt to moderate a debate" ..really? I thought she did ok, she was passive, sure, but it was understandable after everyone called her bias before the debate started. I could see how she wanted to stay out of it so no one could claim any bias, unfortunately our skilled politicians don't answer questions without a little arm twisting.
