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 TV for the rest of eternity. Not bad, I say. Then they tell me it's the Rachel Maddow show, and just like her show, it repeats the same story over and over. People who watch this are mindless.

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 guy 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 damn?

3 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 less talented black version of Anderson Cooper. There is no depth to be found in this man, no intelligence outside the ability to read a teleprompter, and no drive to seek the facts or truths.

The man obviously has picked a side and holds a strong bias. He is incapable of taking constructive feedback or holding a constructive debate without talking over or "accidentally losing video feed" with any guest that he holds a difference of opinion with. 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 to it.

4 Cenk Uygur

He's the kind of person who's gonna do something so severely dumb and pathetic that's gonna put him in either jail or a psychiatric hospital with a straight jacket.

Cenk is so unhinged because he knows everything he spits out is nothing but blatant lies, and everyone with a high IQ knows it. He tries to get louder, knowing he has to try and scare people into conceding an argument he has no merit to discuss in the first place. His strong hatred towards Jewish people is pretty obvious.

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 talk about how they are Nazis. Truly a guy that has never fully grown up and should be nowhere near the news anchor position.

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

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

6 Chris Matthews

I watched him interview HRC. He asked her a question, asked if he shouldn't have asked the question, then told her she didn't have to answer. Hell of an interview. Next time, just kiss her butt on camera.

An irrational left-wing kook. No one believes the vitriol he spews has a toehold in reality.

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

7 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. He 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 standing in this poll.

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

8 Ed Schultz
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 from when he tried a Hail Mary against Ben Shapiro while 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.

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 Cuomo. They really could use someone better.

Attacks Republicans at every angle.

The Contenders
11 Lawrence O'Donnell

Whoever 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, wastes of time, you know, one can imagine. Make a count sometime of how many "you know"s he uses. It'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!

13 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 an independent conservative, this guy basically praises Trump wherever he goes. While I like Fox News and sometimes it provides real information, this guy is so right-wing it makes Dinesh D'Souza look like a liberal. My dad personally finds him to be an 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 guests 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.

14 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 is all she needs.

Can't believe she gets any airtime. She 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.

15 Brian Tyler Cohen
16 Ben Meiselas
17 Ana Kasparian
18 Dan Rather

Not much dependable journalism here!

A blank statement about Rather sums up everything he stands for.

19 Brian Stelter

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

20 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: child rapists, celebrity deaths and misfortunes, and family killer stories. She'll keep reporting and dragging us through the sickening details as long as people watch her show and make her money.

Every night she announces, "Breaking news!" or "Bombshell!" and then just repeats the same content 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 housewife call in and tell Nancy that her twin children are God's gift to us all.

She's incredibly rude to her guests and is a terrible actor. Each night she pulls out the "almost-sobbing, apathetic voice" when she announces the latest soldier to die in Iraq, but that voice bounces right back the instant she plugs her latest book!

She doesn't care about her guests, her employees, her viewing audience, or anything else that doesn't make her money.

21 Jordan Meiselas
22 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 teleprompter. 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 stating there are hard news people and commentators. What the hell is Smith supposed to be? He sure isn't fair and balanced.

23 Roland Martin
24 Elie Mystal
25 David Pakman

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