LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - NBC News veteran Tom Brokaw is America's most trusted network anchor, but his heir apparent, Brian Williams, is the least. 

22% of those surveyed named NBC's Brokaw as the news anchor they trust the most, while Williams, the MSNBC anchor widely seen as being groomed to eventually replace Brokaw, was in last place with just 4%. Top-rated cable network Fox News Channel's Shepard Smith (16%) was in a virtual three-way trustworthiness tie for second place with ABC World News Tonight anchor Peter Jennings (17%) and CBS Evening News host Dan Rather (16%).

Do you agree, along with the majority of Americans, that Tom Brokaw is the best news anchor?

Growing up with 'Uncle Walt' ( Walter Cronkite ) ...Brokaw seems the most trustworthy..tho Jennings can come over for coffee anytime he wants!

LOL eyesofbliss! I don't know about Brokaw being the 'best', but I prefer his news delivery.

I prefer Peter Jennings.

Nice pose Mr Brokaw!

Jon Stuart is the man I trust to deliver the news...

Tom Brokaw sure thinks so. But I will take Shepard Smith anyday.

I always liked the old Tom Brokaw skits on SNL. However, I have a few qualms about agreeing that Mr. Brokaw is indeed the favorite without any knowledge given about who took the poll, how many were asked, etc. Also, the sons-of-bitches all say the same thing, so I don't think it matters. Its not like the government feeds these guys different info for different networks.

Steve Carell on the Daily Show rules over all their asses.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/20/03 - 2:28:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like Ted Koppel,Peter Jennings
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/20/03 - 2:30:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Jeraldo would put Tom to shame.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/20/03 - 2:46:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Personally, I like Jim Lehrer best.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/20/03 - 2:52:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
who
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/20/03 - 2:54:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Jim Lehrer is from the News Hour on PBS. (formerly known as the McNeil-Lehrer News Hour)

18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/20/03 - 3:53:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
22% is not a majority. 22% for means 78% against.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 9/26/03 - 4:05:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
my favorite is Peter Jennings.

but probably the most straightforward, get-down-to-the-facts guy is Lehrer.

(lol @ the Geraldo comment)

but we all know that none of them can ever compare to Norm Macdonald, the best news anchorman of all time.

Tom Brokaw is such a poser!! he has nothing on those oldschool news anchors! 0_o
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 9/26/03 - 11:24:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Tom Brokaw has a voice, delivery, and style that sounds arrogant and affected to my ears. Just a little too roostery for me.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 9/26/03 - 11:28:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Roostery is funny! You know what actual word I mean that should be allowed, but the word censors can't discriminate well and throw out everything. The Puritans are still strong in America I see.

I prefer Rather, but I have nothing against Brokaw.

goman: he took 22% of the vote on who's the most trustworthy. It wasn't a question of wheather or not you considered each person trustworthy, it was a question of whom you considered to be the MOST trustworthy. Brokaw had the most votes for him (22%), so therefore he was in the majority.
