Is Your Favorite Anchor Loved by Liberals?

I've always suspected — since it's nearly impossible to be completely neutral — that some news jockeys are a scootch partisan. After all, one errant blink, and bam! Branded. Even Liberty and I have our favorites: She hearts Chris Matthews, and I'm hopelessly devoted to Wolf Blitzer — even though he has a nasty habit of saying, "this is interesting . . ." and then following up with something that's, uh, not interesting. But I forgive. Relationships are hard work.

Those crafty kids at Gawker graphed the approval ratings of over twenty news anchors, from Katie Couric to Rush Limbaugh, based on political party. Of course Democrats hate Rush Limbaugh, but get this: Republicans don't actually like him with a reciprocal intensity. And how do the three big winners, Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams, and Anderson Cooper, manage to be loved by all? Alas, our poor Chris Matthews and Wolf Blitzer didn't fare so well. How did your favorite anchor measure up? Do you watch that anchor precisely because you feel like he/she agrees with you?

And Olberman's my dude - has been since ESPN. He dislikes anyone stupid regardless of politics, race, gender or age. Plus he loves to ran and rhyme and he got Rita Crosby fired - what's not to love there.

I object Nancy Grace is not a ANCHORPERSON. She is a dealer in misery. She loves it she's neither liberal nor conservative she's a whole new political group PURE EVIL. She's all about absolute vengeance before guilt, facts, investigation and information. Look road-rage killings, serial-killings, child molesters and rapists make Nancy happy. She's inhuman. Nancy Grace is T-1000 version 2.0 Now Wolf Blizter - two great animals that taste great together - isn't that what Colbert says.

OReilly is definitely the new Rush but with a lot more sexual harassment.

I would like to Wolf Blitzer Greta Van Susteran in the Anderson Cooper, if you know what I mean.

I'm partial to the best political team on television; Wolf, Anderson (only a cool name if you're on TV), Jack and Gloria. I'm abroad at the moment so I don't really have a choice. Either CNN or nada!

Aw, no love for Tucker? But his little bowtie is so cute! I'm a Tim Russert fangirl myself.

*Gasp!* Why doesn't anyone like Wolf Blitzer?

I think O'Reilly will go the way of Limbaugh soon, at least I hope so (hated by the left and not liked by the right, basically a joke). My favorite is Olbermann, especially when he goes back to his roots and does NFL reporting, lol. I miss Charles Gibson in the morning! I loved him but I don't watch the evening news.
