My Favorite Newscaster

Anyway, here's what I had to say about Anderson. I like him because he seems pretty balanced-even though he's probaly liberal leaning personally.
Unlike other supposed newscasters and interviewers he doesn't cut people off in mid- sentence, but he also doesn't let them get away with lies. When they say something that the facts conradict, he calls them on it immediately and presents them with the facts and gives them another chance to defend their statements.
I also think he has a great head, He's fun to draw. These are from memory.

Every newscaster I see on TV is someone I would flee from if I saw them on the streets. Why are they so damn weird?

Amusing caricature of Anderson, at first I thought this was Gerald Scarfe's sketch, but better.

I don't get it sometimes, I see a lot of newspresenters with big ears...but they never seem to use them when they interview people.

I like him. He's the most balanced reporter and interviewer and he has a great head.

I think The News Hour's Jim Lehrer is pretty balanced, and he's kinda funny-looing. Not to mention Mark Shields from the same program always reminds me of Eddie Fitzgerald.

Maybe it's from having an 85 year old mother who has preserved her flesh so that she looks younger than her white haired son.

John, every time I see your drawings on notebook paper I hear my mom yelling in the back of my head to draw on "real" paper!

But I love these. Anderson is awesome.
