Final week, we despatched a survey to a number of dozen cable information hosts from Fox Information, CNN, and MSNBC, hoping to achieve perception into how insiders view their very own colleagues and opponents.
Whereas guaranteeing full anonymity, we requested them to call one colleague for every of the next 10 classes: Finest and Worst Hosts, Fox; Finest and Worst Hosts, CNN; Finest and Worst Hosts, MSNBC; Finest and Worst Visitors, General; and Finest and Worst TV Reporters, General.
So when it got here to CNN, how did our surveyed cable newsers vote? Have a look under:
Finest Host, CNN
Shocker: The Lead anchor Jake Tapper gained.
(We named him the perfect cable information host of 2014 and the perfect present total.)
In contrast to a few of the different classes on this nameless survey, nonetheless, the winner was decided by a plurality of votes. Tapper’s runners-up included Don Lemon (4 votes), Brooke Baldwin (3 votes), and Erin Burnett (2 votes), amongst a number of others. Wolf Blitzer was certainly one of a handful of hosts receiving a single nod.
Worst Host, CNN
This was a tough class, apparently, as there was no clear-cut winner(s). Nobody acquired a majority or perhaps a plurality sufficiently big to be declared the “winner” of the doubtful honors. Each single title chosen by our voters acquired both 1 or 2 votes, and nothing extra.
Amongst these receiving two votes: Chris Cuomo, Kate Bolduan, Don Lemon, and Carol Costello.
