Top 10 Worst News Show Anchors


The Top Ten

1 Al Sharpton

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.

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.

He only likes reporting things that he thinks troubles the African American community

Idiot too much black shut

2 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

Too, too many interruptions which causes one to think that he is not interested in another's opinion!

The day he's off air can't come soon enough.

He was all "THE WHITE CHRISTIAN MEN" this and "THE WHITE CHRISTIAN MEN" that. Glad to see this triggered old cracker go. - Kfox101

3 Rachel Maddow Rachel Maddow

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.

Rachel spends the time to take a story that was deliberately misinterpreted,twisted,and turned giving a completely different understanding in order to suit another's needs.She will take you along as she investigates the story Showing all the info being twisted, distorted, changed, and being left out completely. ----- Changing the out come of the situation. Rachel's the only one we have that is standing up to Fox,tearing their reports apart and showing the American people how they get misled.--------call it Fox bashing ----- or call it Calling the people out who are defrauding America - zircon

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.

Just awful!

4 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.

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

Wouldn't get out of the bath tub to go do his show. Bath tub boy!

6 Chris Matthews

Left wing (tingle up the leg) liberal. he slobbers and hardly ever finishes a sentence. terrible

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.

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.

7 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.

8 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.

9 Sean Hannity Sean Hannity

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.

Said the Russian interference with the election was just a conspiracy theory... Then a few weeks later Alex Jones appears on Fox News. What an old dumb*ss - Kfox101

10 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...

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.

Absolutely the least intelligent news anchor. No depth whatsoever.

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!

The Contenders

11 Piers Morgan 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.

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

He's a hatchet man of the New World Order that advocated SUICIDE MASS MURDER PILLS and GOVERNMENT TYRANNY

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

Gun control shot him down. Oh yeah he sucked.

Not much dependable journalism here!

13 Nancy Grace 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 ...more - corebare

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!

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.

She always say "bombshell". - madoog
