Is Your Favorite Anchor Loved by Liberals?

I've always suspected — since it's nearly impossible to be completely neutral — that some news jockeys are a scootch partisan. After all, one errant blink, and bam! Branded. Even Liberty and I have our favorites: She hearts Chris Matthews, and I'm hopelessly devoted to Wolf Blitzer — even though he has a nasty habit of saying, "this is interesting . . ." and then following up with something that's, uh, not interesting. But I forgive. Relationships are hard work.


Those crafty kids at Gawker graphed the approval ratings of over twenty news anchors, from Katie Couric to Rush Limbaugh, based on political party. Of course Democrats hate Rush Limbaugh, but get this: Republicans don't actually like him with a reciprocal intensity. And how do the three big winners, Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams, and Anderson Cooper, manage to be loved by all? Alas, our poor Chris Matthews and Wolf Blitzer didn't fare so well. How did your favorite anchor measure up? Do you watch that anchor precisely because you feel like he/she agrees with you?
