Survey Reveals America’s Most Liked and Disliked News Anchors
The results are in and the viewers have spoken: no longer do media critics and news analysts have to guess at which presenters and anchors are the audience’s favorites. Based on results from a survey conducted by the Q Scores company, The Wrap has revealed who your most and least liked news anchors are.
With a 19 positive Q Score, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley came in at number one on the list, narrowly beating CNN’s Anderson Cooper (18 positive Q Score points) as America’s favorite news anchor.
Fox News hosts and anchors Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Shepard Smith all scored a “below-average” 10, according to the Q Score survey, but still beat out their competitors on MSNBC. Andrea Mitchell and Alex Wagner scored 9 and 8 respectively.
At the bottom of the list, MSNBC’s Hardball anchor Chris Matthews had the lowest likability score of all the names tested. He registered only a 6 on the Q Score survey.
