Which network anchor of the big 3 do you prefer to watch?

I'm just curious. Who do you watch?











I personally Brian Williams. (He fills up my iPod too ) His blog is absolutely FASCINATING, I highly recommend it to everyone here so you can know how and why he makes decisions on certain news stories, plus other random tidbits. www.dailynightly.msnbc.com He's also very humorous, if you ever catch him on Conan or the Daily Show he's an absolute stitch. Sometimes he allows his humor get through into the broadcast. I guess you have to be an avid viewer to notice. He's been a great successor to Brokaw, IMO.

I don't watch the network news that often, but I'd say my preference is Charles Gibson (he's still Charlie to me). I like him-he's down to earth and real. I have always watched ABC News too, it's just my preference.

I tried to watch Katie but I just didn't like the format and certain things bugged me-like Katie sitting on the desk Maybe now it will be better with a new producer. I'll try it again. They need to just have her deliver the news and not make it like the Today show.

Prefer Charles Gibson.

Katie Couric is a disgrace. She's absolutely awful, what a terrible "first woman" to represent us.

But I don't really like any of the 3 networks. I mainly watch the BBC and CBC with MSNBC thrown in.

I don't either. I usually watch the local network evening news, but not the national news with these anchors. There's only so many hours of news (plus news sites and blog reading during the day) I can stomach.

Brian Williams is nice, but not for reasons having anything to do with news anchoring...

I usually watch cable news, but if I do watch the networks, it will be Charles Gibson

Brian is currently on the cover of Men's Vogue. It's a very insightful article on him, and some scary stuff regarding Bush.
