Melbourne, Sept 24 : A television news anchor who looks like Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has revealed that she's been getting 'hate mail and nasty phone calls' from viewers who think she's trying to copy her signature style.
Cindy Michaels at WVII-TV in Maine has long brown hair that she sometimes wears up in a style similar to the Alaska governor, and she also wears glasses occasionally.
Michaels says viewers recently began accusing her of trying to copy Palin's style or, worse, somehow trying to subliminally sway votes.
Michaels confesses to finding the hate mail a 'little strange'.
"I don't think I look like her, I think I look like me," News.com.au quoted her, as saying.
