You know, I used to like Jon Stewart. Its sad though that people like Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart cave to the hip portion of society and their own personal biases. There are plenty of stories for both sides that would attract both sides and educate, and yet, he’s too busy brown-nosing the left.

I don;t trust any of them, but if it were not for Lou Dobbs, I'd have deleted CNN from my channel lineup.

And I normally watch FOX

The Big Guy and F. Lee are trustworthy, but they are not, strictly speaking, newscasters.

Web poll with limited options -- looks like there was no way to provide your own answer. This only answers one narrow question:

"Of web users who frequent Time.com and use the non-scientific online polling section of the site, which of these four arbitrarily chosen media personalities is most popular?"

I'm pretty sure I can imagine who would be on the top of an open poll conducted among FReepers, and it wouldn't be any of those folks.

Could add Mark Levin also. Just look at how much Levin’s new book has taken off.

Yes indeed he did. And he is correct. And I cast my vote and that of all my deceased relatives (may they rest in peace) for Rush as America’s anchor man.

Walter Crankcase was a pusillanimous prevaricating purveyor of communist propaganda.

What has his demise to do with folks who are trusted?

Easy Peasy Easy....Rush pretty just much scrolls thru Free Republic and reads it on air. A great ally, but hardly what I'd call a newscaster.

That’s right. El Rushbo saves me and countless others from having to watch these disgusting Marxists drone on. He condenses their attacks on freedom, playing crucial clips, and telling us what we need to know about what the scallywags said.

That’s why I am more than pleased that Rush makes the big bucks. He earns it. In fact, I think he needs a big raise come contract time, for putting up with the increasing attacks from the looney and deranged Left.

If you were a Rush 24/7 subscriber, and had seen his many sources, which are available daily to subscribers, then you would know that your assertion is pure hogwash.

Scott Ott of Scrappleface. In this upside-down era, intended satire is just as legit as so-called “serious” news.

What’s a newscaster? Probably a guy that casts all the news in the wastebasket and then babbles mindlessly about what he thinks between commercials. Favorite newscaster? Favorite undertaker. Favorite garbageperson. Favorite taxidermist.Favorite lawyer. Favorite democrat. Why would anyone have a favorite in categories like these?
