Newswomen Identify With Angelina Jolie

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

The overnight story of Angelina Jolie having a double mastectomy has resurrected similar stories of national newswomen who relate only too well to the actress.

“Thank God she did it and thank God she talked about it and thank God she got it out there,” said Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin. “She is a great role model!”

Griffin revealed on Fox News radio that some nine weeks ago she had her ovaries and uterus taken out because of the link between breast cancer and other types of cancers.

Also following Jolie’s news is ABC “The View’s” Barbara Walters, who admitted that she, too, had her ovaries removed. As reported by Hollywood Life, she told co-hosts on the show that she had the surgery to prevent cancer. Her sister died of the disease.
