Jon Stewart Tops ‘Most Trusted Newscaster’ Poll


By Chris Ariens Comment

Time_7.23.bmpWith the passing of Walter Cronkite, whose funeral later this afternoon will be webcast on, Time magazine has taken a poll asking ‘who is the new most trusted newscaster in America.’

It’s not Brian, Charlie or Katie.

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams responds to TVNewser (tongue firmly planted in cheek): “I am reluctant to congratulate Jon, only because questions have been raised about the methodology of the poll. In some precincts, voting irregularities have been reported. People apparently thought they were either voting for Jimmy Stewart, Patrick Stewart or Danica Patrick. When asked to decide between Jon and me, several respondents answered, ‘the tall one…’ and yet their votes were not recorded. That’s disenfranchisement.”
