#1 We are still stuck in the artificial stupidity stage. Most anchors are programmed daily with a limited number of Democrat talking points which they deliver with a kind of robotic affect. Little learning is involved.

#2 Fire All the News Anchors and "Talking Head" commentators...
Way back, about 1982 IIRC, the local Cable TV distributor had the "Raw" AP Headline feed on one of the channels. All capitol letters and a single paragraph on each story in a very terse "Just the facts, Ma'am!" format-- my understanding was that the local news outlets could "buy" an expanded version if they were interested. Then watching the very same story slanted on the Nightly News I wondered if I had been transported to some alternate reality. The facts kinda-sorta matched but the Spin was totally different... At that point my trust in the MSM died.

#3 Shades of Ron Burgundy:
"He'll read ANYTHING you put on the teleprompter"
"Anything?"
"ANYTHING"

#4 What about Don Lemon? Or does there have to be a measure of some kind of intelligence?

#5  What about Don Lemon?

I'm all for AI robot newsreaders. After all, artificial intelligence is better than no intelligence at all.

Hell, I could replace Don Lemon tomorrow with a Markov chain and a text-to-speech module
