Have you noticed there are not that many Jewish anchorwomen out there? Surprising, isn't it? It shouldn't be that hard to find a pretty yenta with good diction. Yet here the TV stations are, Shiksa City.
Well, Shiksa City with one footnote: for whatever reason, there are a lot of Asian anchorwomen. Here in New York, we have Kaity Tong on Channel 11, Liz Cho on Channel 7, Christina Park on Channel 5...
Wait, let's backtrack a second. Liz Cho sure sounds Asian, but those big brown eyes don't necessarily look Asian...
Aha! Korean father, Jewish mother (Korew? Jewrean?), raised Jewish. Excellent.
You can guess from whom we'll be getting our news from now on...
