Top 10 Worst News Show Anchors

The Top Ten
1 Rachel Maddow Rachel Anne Maddow is an American television host and political commentator. A liberal, Maddow hosts The Rachel Maddow Show, a nightly television show on MSNBC, and serves as the cable network's special event co-anchor alongside Brian Williams.

She is a propagandist! She will only report on news stories that fox news covers and she doesn't even report on the news that is happening. she spends her entire time mocking and slandering fox news. She is always talking about how tolerant she is but is intolerant to anyone who does not have the same view as her.

I die and go to hell and they tell me I have to stay in a room and watch T.V. for the rest of eternity. Not bad I say. then they tell me it the Rachel Maddow show and just like her show it repeats the same story over and over.. People who watch this are mindless

Only in America could this person be taken serious. Once again the far left is given front and center stage, not only on the dud msnbc, but also on the over air networks.

She's showed her true colors after Trump won the elections. If she can't stay neutral when reporting the news then she's useless and her network.

2 Al Sharpton Alfred Charles Sharpton Jr. is an American civil rights activist, Baptist minister, television/radio talk show host and a former White House adviser for President Barack Obama.

Tax evasion is the least of his inequities.
How about abusing the entire definition of what a REVEREND truly is? Someone with SUPPOSED higher standards and knowledge that the unsure and insecure would lean towards for guidance and better understanding.
Give me a break. The only time this A-hole makes the news is when a problem rears its ugly head, and there he stands baiting the frustrations of human tolerance, and all the while, sneaking his hand out for the proverbial donation.
Never is he to be seen or heard of later, when the lights go dim, promoting any guidance towards calm and remedy.

I guess once the check clears, who should give a ***t.

Al Sharpton thrives on racial issues, it's his primary source of income. If racial issues doesn't come fast enough he will instigated, create it and market it. I'm annoyed as a black person that this man is on CNN. As so called man of good he truly far from fair and honest in his actions and words. Those who cry racism for every little incident is usually racists at heart.

A racist from the word go! Very much a trouble maker concerning ALL things that perpetrates the "Black Privilege." The only thing that will satisfy this racial-grievance mongerer will be for every white person in America to atonement for real or (in most cases) imagined sins of their forbears.

Causing more racial divide than the police, who should arrest him for tax evasion. Obama is crazy for even being in the same room with this crook. Pay your taxes and simply retire and get out of everyone's face.

3 Cenk Uygur

He is a really petty fool, that can't handle any sort of criticism or different opinions. All he ever does is scream his head off about people he doesn't like, and then talks about how they are Nazis. Truely a guy that has never fully grown up and should be nowhere near the News Anchor Position.

Wears communism with a different name tag. Absolutely outrageous bigot who has no understanding of how a debate works. Gives his opinion only and shows biased to no evidence. Waste of an ivy league education

Idiot. He is constantly rude to guests, interrupts often, and falls right in line with the unbearable bias that plagues msnbc. He has no place in television and is essentially the Bill O'Reily of the left.

You know, I used to think this guy was a bit obnoxious, but compared to Anna Kasparian...not even close. And I'm a Progressive Liberal who votes Democrat or Libertarian...

4 Don Lemon

This man only holds his position at CNN as far as I can tell because of the color of his skin and the fact that he is gay. He's the black less talented version of Anderson Cooper. There is no depth to be found in this man. No intelligence outside the ability to read a TelePrompTer. No drive to seek the facts or truths. The man obviously has picked a side and holds a stong bias. Incapable of taking constructive feedback or holding a constructive debate with out talking over or "accidentally losing video feed" with any guest that he holds a difference of opinion. If Webster or Wikipedia needs a visual aid to help define "fake news", my recommendation would be to add a picture of Don Lemon next it...

Lemon needs to watch the 1987 movie Broadcast News, which depicted deteriorating news industry standards that seem positively quaint today. In one scene, producer Ernie Merriman (played by Robert Prosky) says "Who cares what you think! " about anchor Tom Grunick's (William Hurt) on air observation "in other words, I think we'll all be OK." If I had a dollar for every time Don Lemon says "I think" followed by an uninformed opinion... His obvious ego does not allow him to grasp the basics of his job. In his mind, he is part of the story, an expert on whatever is being discussed. Honestly I flip past CNN if he's on. Can't stand to watch!

I'm a liberal, but I think Don Lemon is full of himself at times. He also censors anybody he doesn't agree with. It seems like good journalism like the Washington Post and NY Times have moved away from Hillary Clinton, but CNN remains loyal to her, even after such an awful loss to a maniac. No one liked either of them as candidates, and, as an Independent, I was really disappointed in the Democratic Party for choosing Hillary to be any kind of representative to go up against a bigoted authoritarian maniac.

I used to watch CNN at one time when they reported the news.They were very thorough with the top news stories. Ever since Clinton lost the election they are totally obsessed with their biased reporting if you can call it reporting. Don Lemon is the worst with Chris Cuomo a close second. Get back to reporting the issues honestly. Your kind of reporting only divides the country more. Report honestly and do not be so obviously biased.

5 Bill O'Reilly William James O'Reilly Jr. is an American conservative commentator, journalist, author, and television host.

The fact that bill OReilly is 2nd on the list and Sean hannity is not even in the top ten reveals that the people who voted for bill don't even watch fox news. They just get there opinions from other media stations who all try to on bill's work. Just because he is the face of "big, scary, evil," doesn't mean he is the most biased on the network. He approaches each subject in an analytical matter, giving both sides of the argument, then finishes with why his side of the argument is right... And it usually is. And that may not be how journalism was originally intended, but UNFORTUNATELY, that's where it is now a days. Liberal media started distorting the publics view their progressive polarized journalistic reporting long before right wing media. Now it goes both ways. Gotta fight fire with fire. To sum it up, bill OReilly, whether you like it or not, is highly intellectual, and as biased as his views may be, they are well thought out-at least his economics beliefs are...

Oh and ...more

Bill is a partisan lawyer who defends and applauds his own party while prosecuting and slandering his opposition. He is prejudiced and biased. If The Flat Earth Society became a prominent fixture in The Republican Party due to lobbying and financial contribution, Bill might find a way to legitimize the idea of a Flat Earth, and would feel justified in so doing.

He is so annoying thinks. he thinks he is so intelectual, smart and perfect, but in reality he is just another human being: NOT PERFECT. Is he forgeting that he smoked marijuana in college, and the Howard Stern owned him?

I was unaware that ostriches watched television. Pull you head out if you want the truth and listen to what Bill O'reilly has to say...or you could learn how to read...either way you may actually become helps when you try to vote..

6 Chris Matthews

Watched him interview HRC asked her a question, asked if he shouldn't have asked the question. Then told her she didn't have to answer. HELL of a interview, next time just kiss her butt on camera.

An irrational leftwing kook. No one believes the vitriol he spews has a toe hold in reality.

Constantly drops guests when they don't say whatever planned narrative he has made up.

He talks in a kind of blustery speech that is inarticulate and incomplete sentences.

7 Ed Schultz
8 Keith Olbermann

Lack of employing his common sense. He is intellectual, but does a poor job of using it in sensible ways. All of his rhetoric was only to bash Fox news. Rarely gave unbiased and fairness a chance which is what reporting should be about.

There is nothing good to say about this character but I agree with his standings in this poll.

In the interest of fairness, he is just as biased as the news network he frequently bashes.

Olbermann is a biased angry buffoon who has no place in the media.

9 Piers Morgan Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan, known professionally as Piers Morgan, is a British journalist and television personality currently working as the US editor-at-large for Mail Online.

"How dare you ! How dare you !" Those words will forever bounce around in my head when he tried a Hail Mary against Ben Shapiro discussing Sandy Hook.

Why does this ape have a job in America to comment on Americans and American values?

Please don't deport him. We don't want him back.

Gun control shot him down. Oh yeah he sucked.

10 Chris Cuomo

He found out very quickly that when it comes down to ratings, there is no loyalty. CNN dumped him so fast that they did not even toss a party.

Pretentious and disingenuous are the first words that come to mind when watching Como. They really could use someone better.

Attack republicans at every angle.

One of the most biased and far left news anchors to ever exist, he claims CNN is not biased when his brother is the democratic governor of NY

The Contenders
11 Lawrence O'Donnell

Who ever talks the loudest, wins in the world of O'Donnell. To him he's never lost an argument, to us his viewers he's an idiot.

So negative you could turn the sound off and turn the radio on this guy would still make you limp.

12 Anderson Cooper Anderson Hays Cooper is an American journalist, television personality, and author. He is the primary anchor of the CNN news show Anderson Cooper 360°.

To listen , you know, to Anderson, you know, is, you know, one of the biggest, you know, waste of time, you know, one can know. Make a count sometime of how many "you know" he's the only thing that makes watching his program worthwhile.

Give me a break. This guy should work at McDonald's.

Another dishonest and biased non journalist!

Old $ and a Vanderbilt New World Order puppet.

13 Joy Reid

I can only say that I wish the woman would just disappear. She is so full of herself and in her mind, that all she needs.

Can't believe she gets any airtime. Could be a pretty black woman but spends effort trying to be white.

She is just such a toxic human being, that does nothing but push hate.

Someone who doesn't know the facts, and when the facts create an inconvenient truth, she makes up her own

14 Sean Hannity Sean Patrick Hannity is an American talk show host and conservative political commentator. Hannity is the host of The Sean Hannity Show, a nationally syndicated talk radio show. He also hosts a cable news show, Hannity, on Fox News.

Even as a independent conservative, this guy basically praises Trump where ever he goes. While I like Fox News and sometimes, it provides real information, this guy is so right wing it makes Dinesh D'Sousa look like a liberal. My dad personally finds him to be a idiot and now I think that. Sean, you're a good man, but please bring in both left wing and right wing people instead of just having Sara Carter and other right wing buffoons like Dick Cheney ( Of course, I like when he talks to Newt Gingrich because he helped balance the budget with Bill Clinton and has actual facts ). If you want a good radio host, listen to Rush Limbaugh instead of this guy. And if you want good right wing news, read the Wall Street Journal.

To believe anything he says as being truthful is a betrayal of common senses. I don't know if he is devoid of common sense or critical thinking skill, but it is obvious to me that he doesn't employ them when expressing his viewpoints.

He goes out of his way to dismiss anything that is truthful and has been proven as such if it goes against his beliefs. He ignores common sense and expresses opinions and beliefs that are contrary to common knowledge.

This guy is complete cancer and so is the rest of Fox News. He's brainwashed half of the country to believe in his bullcrap conspiracy theories, reads literal propaganda for Donald Trump, sides with Infowars, and blows Trump at any chance he gets.

15 Ana Kasparian
16 Dan Rather

Not much dependable journalism here!

A blank statement about Rather sums up everything he stands for

17 Brian Stelter

The guy is just an idiot and Only on CNN that he can he survive, even though CNN is in a nose dive because of people like him.

18 Nancy Grace Nancy Ann Grace is an American legal commentator, television host, television journalist, and former prosecutor.

The "Nancy Grace" show is not a news program, nor is it story-driven journalism. All Nancy Grace does is use and sensationalize the worst of the worst: The child rapists. Celebrity deaths and misfortune. Baby, wife or family killer stories, and she'll keep reporting (repeating dragging us through the sickening details as long as the morons watch her show and make her money).

Every night she announces, "Breaking news! " or "Bombshell! " And then just repeats the same crap she did the night before.

She acts upset about the "girl" or "mother of two" who was murdered or missing, but has no problem paying the obviously-guilty main suspect $5,000 to $20,000 to come on her show. (So what if they use that money for their defense or to skip the country! )

Half the show is four "experts" talking over each other and then there's the portion of the show where she lets every white-trash housewife call in and tell Nancy that her twin children are God's gift to us ...more

I agree that she is not a news anchor, but simply an over paid person who is providing gossip to the natiion. True news anchors are disappearing and what we are not getting are people who are paid millions to spread their opinions on the news.

Nancy Grace did sure have a easy time berating Casey about being an unfit mother, who spends time with her kids? She's too busy fluffing her own feather! Watch out for that dancing devil Nancy!

In it for the money nothing else. She don't care about anything but her wallet and status. Makes me sick!

19 Shepard Smith

For a hard news anchor (not to be confused with an analyst or commentator, there is a difference), Smith is the worst in history. News anchors are just supposed to read the news, most do it from a tele-promptor, there is supposed to be no opinion, no bias and no whining little side cracks and sarcastic comments. Somebody forgot to give Smith that memo. This is an opinionated, whiny, sarcastic, little twerp in a cheap suit and a lopsided haircut. Fox tries to "educate" us all the time by sating there are hard news people and commentators? What the hell is Smith supposed to be? He sure isn't fair and balanced.

For those that think Fox is all Conservative, you haven't listened to this gem. He is as anti-Trump and liberal as you can get. I listened to him the other day call the president a liar in the middle of his "newscast" at least three times. What ever happened to "Fair and Balanced so you can decide? " I long for the days when the news was simply reported from a factual standpoint. Remember "Headline News" when it actually reported the news? Most millennials never experienced that or NPR when it was educational and politically neutral. Shepard is auditioning for Maddow's job every day.

I don't know who he is but stumbled upon this site when searching for why news anchors scream out the news with screeching tones, instead of just reading and reporting it like it USED to be done. In many countries news is still read out quietly but this loud and obnoxious trend certainly gives headaches.

20 David Pakman

Just another left wing NPC, smart guy, used for the wrong things.

21 Robin Roberts
22 Alex Jones Alexander Emric Jones is an American radio show host and conspiracy theorist. He hosts The Alex Jones Show from Austin, Texas, which airs on the Genesis Communications Network across the United States and online.

He wants you to believe that your part of the resistance but really he is nothing more than a gatekeeper for the big banks and a massive hypocrite. He sells nothing but fear porn and pro-Israel propaganda. He is also just not very good at journalism. He used to expose the left right paradigm telling people that the system is rigged only the change his message claiming that voting republican is the answer which is complete bull and that Trump will defeat the NWO which is such a retarded concept.

There should be no room for bigotry on the new media, Leftwing or right. He prey's on people's fears.

Completely full of crap.

23 Jim Acosta
24 Jake Tapper
25 Wolf Blitzer

The dirt-bag of the year award. A bully who believes only in Wolf Blitzer
