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?) Liz is Jewish religiously, and is married to a Jew. Excellent.
You can guess from whom we'll be getting our news from now on...
