I know people will bring up O'Riley, Cooper and Olberman, but for the most part their shows are well produced and they can give an entertaining interview (even if they're often biased).  The shows in my list have one or more fatal flaws (at least for me).  Some of them are well produced like Larry King and H&C, but holy crap why are any of these people on TV?  Larry King can be decent, when it's a topic he's into.  But for the other 95% of his shows it's like he's putting fenders on Fords.  It's work to him and it shows.  The combined IQ of the 3 hosts of Fox and Friends would fall short of Al Gore's.  Glenn Beck not only looks like a retarded 4 year old, he often acts like one.  I can't believe H&C is still on the air, Colmes is one of three things:a fake lefty, a complete moron or getting paid large buckets of money.  I don't think I need to mention the many way Hannity sucks.  I can't stand the style of show Grace  runs, but that wouldn't be enough to make the list.  She is probably the dumbest person on a major news channel (outside of Fox and Friends of course).  The fact that she's an ugly, shrill bitch just makes it all worse.

So, ahem, what say you? Smiley

(and what did I miss? I'm sure I missed something.  I often leave various news channels on in the background or am in places where other people are watching the news, but I don't "get" my news via the TV normally.  The internet is where it's at.)

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

I agree with GM3, Greta is pretty bad.

Grace and Olberman are probably my two least favorite.

Obviously Greta, she's the worst reporter ever.  I made my mom promise that if I ever go missing not to contact Greta because she never finds anyone.

I actually had Greta on the list and took her off at the last minute!  Damn it!  I can't stand her either.  But Grace is everything bad about Greta, ONLY LOUDER AND SHINIER!

Nancy Grace bugs the crap out of me.

Glenn Beck is obnoxious as well, but at least his show can be entertaining.

I tend not to watch the talking head programs, but I saw a commercial for Nancy Grace last night, looking all tough, saying she will press to find the answers to the criminal cases of the day.  This just increases my dislike of her.

They're all bad but Grace is the worst. Everything is "OMG TEH OUTRAGE!!!!111!!!" and it's terribly cheesy when she tries to "feel for" the victims like in that Elizabeth Smart (who might be good looking) clip.

Isn't it though?  I mean, sure, morning shows are idiotic by nature, but damn.  Are they telling me there isn't anybody else in the world "prettier" and smarter than those three douchebags?

Larry King is the best one on the list followed by Hannity and Colmes.  That's not saying much, though.  The worst ones are easily Nancy Graceless and Glenn Heck.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Glenn Beck. Thankfully Rogers replaced CNN Headline News with BBC World News at channel 44. It was like going from chopped up bits of cow anus to fillet mignon.

Lou Dobbs, I hate his clearly biased reporting and how he is always stating that he represents an "independent" ideology and meanwhile basically focuses his entire show on how immigration is bad.

By the way Nancy Grace is a close 2nd, she needs to be taken off the air immediately.
