To act on television as one who reports the news, but in reality only reads scripts from a teleprompter.

A Russian phrase "news reader" was created in the communist (USSR) era to describe a government controlled video personality to imitate the equivalent of the US reporter of news.
As of this writing, real "reporters" are now hard to find in the USA and confined to "talk radio".
The news reader is lying as usual.
