Which TV News Anchors and Hosts Does Piers Morgan Watch?


By Alex Weprin Comment

CNN host Piers Morgan is interviewed by USA Today this weekend. Among other questions, the newspaper asks him who he watches when he wants to get some news, and the answer is somewhat surprising:

Q: Who are your favorite on-air journalists:

“Wolf Blitzer or Anderson Cooper on breaking news. Brian Williams anchoring or Diane Sawyer or Katie Couric.

“I also like watching people that I don’t really agree with all the time, like Bill O’Reilly or Glenn Beck or Rachel Maddow. I admire anyone on television with a sense of purpose, energy, persistency and their own personality. I like people who are confident in their own skin. It’s why I love Howard Stern, Oprah, Barbara Walters and Larry King.”
