Feb 27, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A new Harris poll lists the country’s favorite current affairs personalities, and topping the list is a familiar face in broadcast news, TVNewser.com reports.

ABC News veteran Diane Sawyer comes in at No. 1 in the survey, the story reports, with 23% of respondents naming her as one of their top three. Second on the list is CNN’s Anderson Cooper, named by 19%, with NBC’s Brian Williams also coming in at 19%.

Rounding out the top five are Bill O’Reilly and Barbara Walters, both at 15%. The rest of the top 10 consists of George Stephanopoulos (14%), Matt Lauer (13%), Katie Couric (13%), Rush Limbaugh (9%) and Sean Hannity (9%).

Two of the top 10 personalities also made the list of the three least favorite. Coming in at No. 1 on that list by a wide margin is Limbaugh, at 46%, followed by O’Reilly at 31%. Third least favorite is Nancy Grace at 23%.

  1. I disagree with the Limbaugh one… to a point. I can understand where people may not like him. I personally find my not liking his “one hand behind his back, just to make it fair” comments. Same goes for him “being right 99.65% of the time.” Can he possibly come off any more conceited? Rush I like what you say, with exception of your being conceited on being right. That’s only for the public to mention, not you! Makes you look bad.
    Now am I noticing that the 3 least mentioned are all Republican and right wing? Makes me wonder how this Harris Poll was conducted and funded.
