Glenn no longer works for FOX and you`ve left out a few brains on FOX. Personally, I think law degrees trump philosophy degrees, but for liberals, philosophy is a good choice because they start from feelings and emotions, not facts and reason. Paul Begala: received his bachelor`s and law degrees from the University of Texas, where he taught before working at the White House Greta Conway Van Susteren (born June 11, 1954) is an American commentator, lawyer, and television news anchor for Newsmax TV.

In September 1996, Hannity joined television presenter Hannity & Colmes alongside Alan Colmes, who represented a liberal viewpoint for the station. In addition to television, Hannity has continued to have her own popular radio show called The Sean Hannity Show They are both quite uneducated, but I have to say that MSNBC is smarter than FOX.

Four Fox hosts mentioned above have higher degrees (Greta, Megyn, Cavuto and O`Reilly). In addition, Kimberly Guilfoyle (J.D.) and Dana Perino (M.A.) animate weekdays at five o`clock in the afternoon. Then there`s Shannon Bream (J.D.), a Supreme Court correspondent who also makes an appearance at 6 p.m. and hosts her own show on weekends; Justice Jeannine Pirro (J.D.), who hosts her own show over the weekend; Laura Ingraham (J.D.), a former Supreme Court employee who is a frequent guest for BOR and Greta; and Jamie Colby (J.D. 22), weekend host. It`s 10 hosts/anchors and regular innkeepers with advanced degrees. That doesn`t count Monica Crowley, Lis Wiehl and Jedediah Bila (all Fox New contributors with JD or M.A. degrees) and others I may have missed. Case closed. Bret Baier is the host of the evening news show Special Report with Bret Baier of Fox News.
He began his career as a reporter for a local news station in Atlanta, Georgia. He then worked as a producer for CNN. He joined Fox News in 2006 and has hosted Special Report since 2009. (b) There is a mix of elitist, selective and less prestigious institutions. I have sometimes been surprised by the educational background of some talking minds. I am aware that such questions involve very subjective judgments, but some talking heads that have always seemed to me to be real flying heads had degrees from elite institutions, and conversely, many of those who sometimes seemed revealing and interesting to me had less selective and respected degrees. In my opinion, the correlation between selectivity and competence is not exactly zero here, but it is not particularly strong either. (a) The overwhelming majority of speaking minds have a university degree; Many of them have higher degrees. The social sciences are well represented, but bachelor`s degrees in social sciences are slightly rarer than humanities majors. Journalism degrees are also common, although in the case of many speaking minds, journalism degrees are more advanced degrees than bachelor`s degrees.
Fox has plummeted in ratings and MSNBC has risen (most recently after CNN). The classic argument was that all conservatives watch Fox (35%), while all others (65%) have a wide range of news sources to choose from. In 2001, she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she became an evening and late-night reporter for CBS affiliate WBTV. In 2004, after three years at WBTV, Bream joined WRC-TV, NBC`s Washington D.C. partner  at WRC-TV, she was a weekend anchor and took on general duties.  Throughout his career, Carlson has worked for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Talk Magazine, Wall Street Journal, The Daily Beast, CNN, New York Times Magazine, Politico and many other news outlets. Apparently, they didn`t look at their law degrees on Fox. I know it was 6 years ago, but they had them then.
They have left out people from 6 years ago and many of them have law degrees and JDs. I thought I`d do a little background research to see if education has an impact on media narrative coverage. MSNBC is generally considered the liberal cable network (although I would say they are the “normal” news organization), and Fox is Rupert Murdoch`s conservative Republican outlet. I selected journalists in the daily programming of each network. I skipped the morning shows (because they`re both crazy) and also included two outliers that worked on the networks: Keith Olbermann and Glenn Beck. I ended up with an extra MSNBC reporter, so I eliminated the beautiful and exuberant Alex Wagner since her show debuted recently (call me, Alex, we`ll talk). I am surprised that Fox News staff have the necessary training, as has been reported. This makes them even more disappointing for me. But then we should deal with what counts as news, right? While many of these hosts are “educated,” many lack an understanding of logic and spew “wisdom” based on logical errors. This is something that should be taught in all universities, but unfortunately it is not.
A bachelor`s degree really gives you a broad understanding of every field, except perhaps in Ivy League institutions. We need more news anchors who go beyond that.
