The Boob Tube
The American television network CBS thinks making Katie Couric their new anchor is a smart move even as they worry that she's not attractive enough.
The french are way ahead of us in female news anchor technology. Get a load of this, boys, and remember to reel your tongue back in when you're done:

And get a load of the outfits she wears to deliver... the news.
But for my money, the best female news anchor was Linda Ellerbee. She anchored a very late night newscast (1 AM!) on NBC in the 80's. While not glamorous she was smart, witty, clever, insightful... completely wrong for network news.
