We asked respondents to name up to five specific journalists they pay attention to, using an open-ended question. “Across countries, less than half of our sample named a single journalist, though this may be due to low response rates in general for these types of questions.”Other fans expressed their thoughts on the subject. @CharlieVisconti wrote: “I'd like to see the age demographics of the respondents. “An ever-increasing number of people don't consume mainstream media but are using internet journalists and other independent online sources for their news gathering.”@LiCross said: “This is an old poll, Chris Mason is now BBC's political correspondent, thank goodness. “Surprised Martin Lewis isn't there, but again depends on how you define journalist.”Piers Morgan has hosted his own TalkTV show, Piers Morgan Uncensored, since April. Interviews conducted on the show include one with former US president Donald Trump. As of July, Piers has shifted the focus of the show to the war in Ukraine. One episode includes his visit to the now war-torn country, where he visited President Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife Olena.They gave their first joint interview which will air on Wednesday night.

Bush — and it seems as though they can now add Rowling to their star-studded list.The multi-millionaire author — who seemingly didn’t know she was being recorded — was under the impression that Zelensky called to thank her for her charity work in the country.Earlier this year, Rowling announced she would match donations up to $1.2 million after her Lumos Foundation launched an emergency appeal to help vulnerable children and families in Ukraine.Fully thinking she was speaking to the president of the war-torn country, Rowling appeared invested in the conversation as the pranksters asked increasingly bizarre questions throughout the interview. During the increasingly-awkward 12-minute call, the impersonators asked Rowling about her thoughts on imposing sanctions on Russian actor Aleksandr Kuznetsov, who starred in the most recent “Fantastic Beasts” film.“Fantastic Beasts has been a very interesting experience.
