Can’t stand the voice, let alone the stupidity.
Check it out:
You’ve known it for years, but now there’s statistical proof: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is the least-liked TV news personality in the United States.
The rambling “Hardball” host came in dead last in a survey of 24 cable news anchors conducted by data company Q Scores. Scraping second-to-last was MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, followed by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell (seeing a pattern here?).
At the head of the popular table is CBS Evening News’ Scott Pelley, followed closely by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and CBS’ Lara Logan.
Considering its absolute dominance of the cable news game, Fox News personalities were less popular than you might expect. Bill O’Reilly came in 15th, well behind MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and just ahead of CNN’s Piers Morgan. Sean Hannity came in at 19, Fox anchor Shephard Smith at 20.
