BEST IN MEDIA?
Pollsters tells us that Americans hate the news media for many reasons. But some in the press universe are more valuable than others, says Mediaite.com, which has compiled a year-end list of the “Most Influential People in News Media.” There are 77 names on the roster, many hailing from broadcast, but with a respectable number from print and online sources.
“We gave it a shot,” Mediaite explains.
Here are the Top 10: In first place, CNN president Jeff Zucker, followed by Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, New York Times political editor Carolyn Ryan, veteran online newsman Matt Drudge, Fox News host Sean Hannity, NBC/MSNBC chairman Andy Lack, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, ABC host George Stephanopoulous and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.
