The Brits call them "newsreaders." Their job is to sit behind a desk on a TV set and read the news -- ostensibly written by actual journalists, but also by the propagandists at the BBC -- off the teleprompter in a professional-sounding manner while looking reassuringly into the camera.
In America we call them "anchors." Their job is to be the star of the show, to determine what goes on the air, to provide the desired slant to the news, and then at some point during the evening, to read the news off the teleprompter in a professional-sounding manner while looking reassuringly into the camera.
In Britain, being a newsreader is a nice job. In America, being an anchor is to sit atop the pinnacle of the fabulously wealthy and self-important infotainment industry.
While British TV viewers might not get news of any higher quality or with any less bias than what American viewers get, they certainly get it with a lot less ego and drama.

Who is Jeff Glor?!
See-BS was a rotted and stinking corpse since the 60s.
Why am I thinking of Katie Couric??
Don't even have enough sense to read the crap off the prompter correctly.
When she first came on the scene, I thought she was so cute. There's nothing wrong with getting the news from a sweet looking young woman. And then she opened her mouth. The grand illusion, death by sound-byte.
We all know that crap is king!
They just need to replay that promotional where she is walking along and the wind blows through her hair. Makes one think of Walter Cronkite.
Walter Cronkite knowingly lied when he reported US forces lost the TET Offensive.
To be honest, I’d prefer we just rotate people at random to read the news. Kind of like when someone from the congregation gets picked to read scripture. No need for news ‘celebrities’.
LOL, doesn’t make me think of Uncle Wally.
Their propagandist value similarities sure does though.
It’s been decades since I watched any evening “news” on any channel. I’m not a fan of propaganda.
Norah ... doesn’t she play piano and sing?
just eye candy, great body - but ultra-liberal, cold...and dumb as a rock...
Easy on the eyes Norah is an attempt to boost ratings by bringing in male viewers. She’s very liberal and it’s not working. Surprised she’s doing worse than Jeff Glor. She gets paid $7 million a year?!
Who is Jeff Glor?!
Glor was the best of the recent CBS anchors.
He had some good, respectful interviews with President Trump.
CBS ought to bring him back asap!!
Only Shepard Smith can save CBS News.
Norah O’Donnell, for me, kind of epitomizes the term “happily stupid.”
Classic gif...and totally accurate.
