Speaking of mannish features, an alert reader sends us this, regarding KETVNewswatchSeven's professional screw-up specialist, FUBAR Fazal:
Don't know if you noticed or not, but last night (August 28) at the 10:00 news cast on Channel 7, Fubar was doing a story about that boat that burned and was sent floating down the river.  Fubar explained to us all that arson investigators were investigating the fire to see if somebody deliberately set it.  Thank you, Captain Obvious!  At least she only fumbled her words about 5 or 6 times, instead of the usual 10 or 12.
Yeah, that's so FUBAR. It would be like her to tell viewers that a cake decorator planned to decorate cakes.

Why does this witless wonder continue to work for Channel 7? Their recent hires show they can do much better.

I'm no fan of Fubar, but isn't it the person writing the copy for her? Unless she writes it herself, of course. I mean, she's just a puppet on the teleprompter string, I know, but I wonder if she doesn't go home at night and say "What the HELL?" I hope she doesn't have TIVO.

No, she's definitely writing her own copy - but she was probably ad-libbing at the time.

Anchors are the only ones that don't write their own copy -- although they SHOULD read over there's really no excuse --- but regardless, there are so many eyes that look at something before it goes on the air...which is why I believe most of Farrah's "problems" stem from ad-libbing.
