Sunday Seven

I thought it might be a fun change of pace to take part in the Sunday Seven at Patrick's Place. Hat tip to Saoirse Daily2 for the inspiration...


Years ago, Walter Cronkite was known as the most trusted man in America.

But these days, when it comes to national newscasters, who do you trust most? Which ones are the most likely to give you the straight dope on what’s really going on in the world? Start thinking now, because that’s this week’s topic. And note that I’m specifying national (or network) newscasters so that everyone can immediately have an idea of who you’re talking about without getting lost in the list of local-only anchor/reporters.

On to this week’s question!

Name seven of the living national (or network) anchors you trust the most.

Either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered “first to play,” a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.) You may include this link in the URL space when leaving your comment, or in the comment itself. As long as it’s there in one spot or the other.

1.) Keith Olbermann (no surprise there)
2.) Bill Moyers
3.) Jon Stewart (perhaps a sad comment on the state of American media, but there you have it)
4.) Christiane Amanpour
5.) Tim Russert
6.) Bob Schieffer
7.) Anderson Cooper

I am so happy to hear you are feeling better. Thank you for the hat tip. We are so kindred in our choices. Did I ever tell you I am from Indiana originally?

No, I had no idea! What are the odds of 2 liberals springing from this hotbed of conservatism? ;)

So which part of our great state are you from originally? I bet you like it a lot better in Washington... I think I would. One of my friends migrated to Seattle after college & never looked back. He LOVES it there.

Great New look! I was born in Fort Wayne and my grandparents had a farm in a small town called South Whitely. I lived for a short time in Bloomington. Being raised most of my life in California helped me become the liberal I am today. I pray that Bush will not lead us to another disgraceful war with Iran. Republicans scare the hell out of me!! Have a fun filled weekend.
