*According to a new Reader’s Digest poll released Tuesday, ‘GMA’ co-host Robin Roberts is the most trusted news anchor. Reader’s Digest polled 1,000 Americans on the trustworthiness of 200 public figures. Roberts was the most trusted television host, coming in at no. 12 on the list with 56% of Americans saying they trust her. In an interview with the magazine, Roberts said she wished her parents could see her receive the distinction. “All they wanted was for us to be trustworthy citizens,” she said. “And there’s a responsibility that goes with that, and it’s not something I take lightly.”
