Which talking head do you hate the most?

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Tom_Brinkman01, Jul 21, 2006.

  1. I say there's a three-way tie between Stephen A. Smith, Jason Whitlock and Bill Walton.

    Whitlock doesn't deserve to be on the list, and while Walton can be annoying, I don't hate him.

    And I have no feeling, positive or negative, toward SAS.

    My choice -- Bill O'Reilly

    Woody Paige. SAS is a close second.

    Screamin' Smith and Sean Salisbury. Captain and first officer of the S.S. Douchebag.

    [And, yes, I did steal that from Conan, although he wasn't referring to them.]

    Probably Chris Frantz, if I had to choose the one I like the least. But I still like them all.

    1. Chris Berman - I wish he could leave me alone.
    2. Katie Couric - I hate her perkiness, her fake seriousness, and relish in her future demise at CBS. This will bomb.
    3. Larry King - A cartoon character who only offers up softball questions to his guests. Boring.
    4. Nancy Grace - As discussed on another thread, a complete and utter beyotch

    No way Whitlock belongs on that list. Maybe he makes the list of most hated message board posters, but as a talking head?

    I once interviewed Walton about his "broadcasting style." He was a stutterer when he was younger. I can't remember whose advice it was, but someone told him to stop thinking when he was on the air and just say whatever came int his head. Doing that corrected the stutter. And that, supposedly, is why he talks so much and sometimes says inane things.

    Sean Salisbury is a pretty good call, actually. The whole former Sunday Night NFL ESPN crew--particularly Theisman and Paul Maguire--used to drive me up the wall. But I am not sure they qualify as talking heads.

    Carry on ..back onto the subject...

    You know, I kind of enjoyed Tommy Smyth (sp?), the short, loud Englishmen during the World Cup. My man was hysterical.
