Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: What was founder William Randolph Hearst's other, considerably more political motivation for establishing the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner? That would be to assist his campaign for the presidential nomination on the Democratic ticket!

Congratulations to Jeanne Kirk for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Ken WalkerIrene DeBlasioHollywood HighlandsPaul BoydAmy ZipkinMargo Howard and Annie M. Dance for also getting that right.

As for today's question, here it is: In 1977, CBS required this journalist to bleach her dark hair platinum blonde. Later she sued a different employer when they tried to demote her (despite successful ratings) for being "too old, too unattractive and not deferential to men." Who is this reporter who fought for equal pay and equal treatment of female journos?
