Dear CNN: Please Fire Tony Harris

This Is The Face Of The Worst Newscaster On CNN:

At any given time, whether at the office or at home, I have several monitors on several news sources both international and domestic. I watch everything from Al-Jazeera to Sky News and beyond. I do this because it is the only way to get a pulse on what is happening in the world on any given day. In doing this, I watch hundreds of newscasters do their thing on a daily basis. Some are good, some are bad, but one of them stands out as the worst newscaster on the planet. I hate Tony Harris.

Harris has been hacking it up on CNN since 2004 and I'm not the only one who has noticed his terrible performance. CNN has a few duds like Rick Sanchez and Nancy Grace but Harris is by far the worst. He jokes and giggles his way through the headlines like a schoolgirl who has yet to crack her first book. He is one of the worst interviewers I have ever witnessed in my years of watching news and he's goofier than the morons who host Fox and Friends.

CNN brass should fire Tony Harris immediately and replace him with the far more talented Don Lemon. Lemon is a fresher face with a much more polished delivery. His banter with fellow anchors is much better than Tony Harris and he is one of the most natural interviewers in the CNN stable. Take note, CNN heads, fire this man or forever remain at the bottom of the early afternoon ratings game.
