Idiotic Poll: Rush Limbaugh Least Favorite “News” Personality

Posted by on Feb 28, 2012 at 7:44 am

He’s by far and away the most popular radio personality of all time and doesn’t do news, but hey, why not lump him in with TV babbleheads so this “poll” can show how “unpopular” he is. He has more listeners than the network television anchors combined, but apparently they’re more popular than he is.

ABC News’ “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer was the favorite news personality among a sample of people queried by the Harris Poll, while Rush Limbaugh was least favorite.

Sawyer was named the favorite by 23% of a sample of 2,016 adults who responded to an online poll during a week in January.

An online poll? And this is news? If online polls meant anything President Dr. Ron Paul would be a shoo-in to win his presidential re-election.
Limbaugh, the conservative radio host, was named by 46% of those questioned as least-favorite news personality.

Participants in the poll were given 26 current-affairs personalities to chose from and asked to pick their three favorite and three least favorite. It should be noted that for 20% of those surveyed, none of the 26 were their favorites.

Following Sawyer on the favorite list were CNN’s Anderson Cooper and NBC News’ “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams, who each got 19% of the votes.

Anderson Cooper isn’t a pimple on Limbaugh’s ass and has no ratings, but he’s more popular. OK, now.

    You have to be pretty sick to get your news from the lame street media. By the way who is Anderson Cooper?
