Antisemitism at CBS?

Today, on CBS This Morning, the commentators could not help but point out that Bloomberg would be (if elected) the first “Jewish President”.

Now, I don’t want ex Mayor Bloomberg to be my president. His record of thumbing his nose at the Constitution (Stop and Frisk, etc) is a big reason, as is his socialist tendencies…
Oddly, however, the fact that he is a Jew wasn’t even on my radar. It is neither a reason to vote FOR him, nor a reason to vote AGAINST him. It really doesn’t matter to me one way nor the other….his religious upbringing and whatever shape the Deity he prays to might be, I mean.

I wonder why Gail King and her staff at CBS thought that was an important fact?
