Journalism(ish) Following my review of 'Shallow Hal' yesterday, I'm slightly more interested in this interview with US newsreader Greta Van Susteren who's gained a bit of publicity by going in for a nip and tuck around her eye lids. The implication seems to be that you can't be a serious news journalist without looking younger. In the UK, this certainly isn't the case. On the main channels outside of Sophie Raworth or Sian Williams, most anchorwomen like Anna Ford, Moira Stewart and Kirsty Walk have been in the job for years, the implication being that maturity breeds authority. But those pretty young things on News 24 are sure to filter upwards soon...
