The New Most Trusted Person, Continued


Today the Washington Post asks the same question we asked yesterday — who becomes America’s Most Trusted Person in the wake of Walter Cronkite’s passing? — and solicits the opinions of a number of notable people. A few of the picks — Oprah, Warren Buffett, Jon Stewart — overlap with our list, but most of them don’t, speaking to the lack of a clear consensus. Barack Obama was a popular choice, and Larry David, Tony Kushner, Anderson Cooper, Fareed Zakaria, and Sully were among the other selections. Also, someone said Miley Cyrus, but we think he was trying to be funny. [WP]
