best-dressed newsmen

Frankenstorm means a whole lot of news watching. When you’re directly in its path it also means a whole lot of mind losing. When you combine news watching with mind losing (this is all very technical), you start thinking about which newsmen are the hottest and (by extension) which are the best dressed. So I give to you my list of the three best-dressed newsmen (in no particular order).

Note: These may fall into WTF Crush territory for some, but I like intelligent, clever funnymen with style. So there.

Brian Williams

A serious newsman with style who also happens to be hilarious? Count me in.

I like stripes. Brian Williams wears them often.

He combs his hair like a dapper boss.

He does that thing with his eyebrows. Oddly attractive.

His daughter stars in HBO’s Girls. I’m not really sure what that has to do with him, but somehow it makes me love him more.

Matt Lauer

He puts a smile on my face bright and early in the morning–and looks quite handsome while he does it.

He regularly participates in witty exchanges with his co-hosts. Off-the-cuff wittiness is highly attractive, in my humble opinion.

Did you see his wardrobe at the Olympics? Casual cool like woah, my friends. He looked like he jumped out of the pages of a Hamptons magazine. Oh wait. He did.

Jon Stewart

best-dressed newsmenThis is not a cop out. I realize that Jon Stewart isn’t actually a newsman. But he’s a fake newsman. And a lot of kids in college do get most of their news pretty much directly through him. Whatever, he’s adorable.

There are plenty of times when I’m belly laughing at one of his jokes while simultaneously noticing how much I like his shirt/tie/jacket color combination.

He’s seriously hilarious. A week or two ago he made an election joke in which he used the term “Baracktose intolerance.” I’m still laughing.

His humor is often self deprecating, which implies that he doesn’t realize how crushworthy he really is.

Alright. So what do you think? Are we in agreement? Has Frankenstorm made me crazy? Did I miss any?
