Oops: CBS News Refers to Janet Yellen as ‘The Son of a Doctor and a Teacher’

There has never been a female head of the Federal Reserve. Which makes a gender error CBS News made on the “Evening News” last night all the more glaring: in a report on Janet Yellen, who President Obama nominated to be the first Chairwoman of the Fed yesterday, Anthony Mason referred to Yellen as “the son of a doctor and a teacher.”

The report was updated for the later feeds of “Evening News.”  Watch a fixed version below (the sentence in question comes around the 1:45 mark).
