The Newsers That Make Esquire Really Happy

esquirebestpeople9-18.jpgEsquire published its list of the “75 Best People in the World” this week: “This is a list of men and women who, by virtue of skill or character, make us happy — happy that they’re among us, happy that they do what they do, happy that they’re successful. Each of them possesses exceptional talent, of course, but each also satisfies two special requirements: Would we like to have a drink with this person? And would we trust this person with our puppy?”

On the internet, it’s pretty rare that a bunch of writers get together to just make a list of celebrities that they claim to actually like, so enjoy it while it lasts. Here are the newsers (or news related celebs) that made the list:

Shepard Smith – An anchor you want to watch, with a touch of the madness of Rather.

Rachel Maddow – A whip-smart voice of reason in the racket that is cable news.

Lara Logan – If only all war correspondents were as enterprising and brave as this one.

Pat Buchanan – Weird and possibly dangerous, but he’s seen a thing or two. Plus, he’d be kind to the dog.

Lester Holt – The one anchor who’s both contemporary and weighty.

Rupert Murdoch – The evil emperor of global media, but he also gets drunk and loses his wedding band. And he loves newspapers. How bad can he be?
