Top 10 Worst News Show Anchors

The Top Ten

1 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.

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.

Please enough already. I keep seeing guys trying to be Dr. King. They try to talk and use his mannerisms. Jesse jackson, al, the former mayor of atlanta during the 80's. There was and is only one Dr. King.

2 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.

3 Bill O'Reilly

This man has single handedly done this country more harm than any other person in resent history. He thinks he has us believing he is God's gift to man kind. Or so the way he talks to us you would think he believe that. He thinks he knows it all, talks down to people, interrupts. He will try to discredit, embarrass or just pain humiliate his guest by interrupting in the middle them answering a question or making a statement, then he'll finish answering the question (or finish making the statement) the guest was making himself. Giving the appearance that's what the guest was saying, and not allowing the guest to intercede to tell the audience what they intended to say! Then he'll just happen to run out of time and cut his guest off and go on to the next guest.

The thing is --- he knows that most people are only listening to the news with one ear (like one skims thru a book). When he talks to the audience like he's repeating what the guest just said (even though the guess said ...more

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?

4 Ed Schultz

Horrible, close to Lawrence O'Donnell for only seeing one side of the "road"

Irrelevent, boring, left wing...

Great dude,pro labor

5 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.

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.

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.

Interrupts his guests constantly

7 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.

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.

This guy is obnoxious!

8 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 get that his uncle did horrible things to his butt, but he should work that out with a therapist instead of spreading his poor baby victim mentality to the world.

9 Cenk Uygur

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...

Lost his way

10 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.

Very arrogant and negative

Another know-it-all

The Contenders

11 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.

I'm honestly fine with Sean Hannity staying in 11th place, as long as someone removes one of the 1s from the 11 marker. Without a doubt, this man is the all Sharpton of the far right. He is not a journalist, rather he is a propagandist, paid by major corporations sympathetic to the GOP and their political lapdogs to spew lies and bull to the ignorant viewers. All this smug faced dusche does is rant about how the democratic party and the "liberal media" are responsible for every damn bad thing that has ever happened to our country including (and I quote) slavery and racism. Well, for his information, there was a little event during the 1960's in which the Democrats and the Republicans completely switched ideologies, leaving the republican party he so piously worships as the heir to the organizations of bigotry and racism that defined the racist south. Sean maniacally defends the worst of the worst of the conservative Christian bigots that the anti-progress right has to offer regardless ...more

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.

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 imagine...you know. Make a count sometime of how many "you know" 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!

Old $ and a Vanderbilt New World Order puppet.

13 Ana Kasparian

She's "literally BETTER THAN YOU"!

14 Dan Rather

Not much dependable journalism here!

15 Chris Cuomo

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

What T.V. news hosts have become, regrettably!

Getting rich.

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

16 Shepard Smith

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.

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.

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.

17 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!

20 John Iadarola
21 Ted Failon
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.

I'M ALEX JONES, THE GLOBALIST ARE DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY BY TURNING FROGS GAY, BUT I CAN'T SEEM TO CONNECT THE DOTS AND SEE THAT ISRAELIS ARE THE GLOBALISTS, BUT BUY MY NEW COLONIC SILVER SUPER MALE BUTTALITY ENEMAS TO KEEP YOU FROM TURNING INTO A GAY FROG! DON'T BE FOOLED BY USING THOSE CHEAP CHINESE KNOCKOFF BUTPLUGS THAT WONT STAY IN THERE MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES, BUY MY CHEAPLY MADE, PURE QUALITY, MADE BY KOREAN SLAVE GIRLS IN THE YUCA FLATS VALLEY, MEXICO.

23 Katie Couric

You should add Steve Raleigh. He is annoying

So glad she's gone.

Full of herself.

SHE IS WHAT I WOULD CALL A "FLUFF" KIND OF REPORTER.

24 Wolf Blitzer
25 Dana Perino

She talks to much yet says nothing

Talks too fast and just boring
