I miss Peter Jennings and I really don't have a favorite newsman nowadays. Do you?
Christiane Amanpour and Wolf Blitzer
Don't reply have a favorite but I think Jake Tapper is doing a good job. I think Wolf Blitzer could be one of the worst on TV.
Brett Baier and Chris Wallace
Technically not news reporters, (whose job is supposed to be just to report the news) I rely on Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddows and the MSNBC lineup for a lot of my news consumption. CNN is probably the most neutral, but there is no one there I really like. I can tolerate Wolf Blitzer. I believe that for the most part there is no truly neutral news although most news organizations can usually make factual reports of a neutral nature, such as the weather or a shooting. The significant difference emerge when they express their perspectives on such occurrences.
I've noticed that over at Fox, their reporters tend to function in the same manner as political opinion shows, casting a very distinct angle on their reporting, channeling what their audience should think about it.
She is brilliant! I really admire her.
For simple news reporting, my current favorite is Lester Holt.
I like him too.
Those who avoid spin, who avoid snide comments, who avoid selective word choice (which is done to advance an agenda), so the ones who come to mind now are
Jake Tappert is almost there.
I'd have to agree that Wolf Blitzer is one of the worst but the one who takes the cake right now is Van Jones.
Van Jones is a pundit not a newsman.
Can't say that I have a favorite as I don't watch too much news cause it sucks.
I haven't had a news caster I liked since Walter Cronkite.
Jim Lehrer is the guy in most recent memory presented the news in a way I found informative and without undue bias. He retired in 2009.
