Hope

Sometimes, dreams do come true. Well, half-true, at least.

Within a day of our suggesting that KETVNewswatchSeven's One-Woman Disaster, Fubar Fazal, ought to be looking to get out of town, an alert reader goes to Medialine.com and finds this gift from the heavens.

We especially like this line: "Proficiency in Spanish and French, and 4 East Indian dialects, some Arabic." You've gotta give her points for truth in advertising: there's nary a mention of proficiency in English. 

Now before we all get our hopes up, let's remember that someone still has to hire her, which hardly seems like a slam-dunk. (We still can't believe she got the job she has now.) 

Then again, if you look at her resumé, you'll note that she has somehow convinced eleven different employers to hire her over the past 20 or so years. As shown by people who watch Channel Sux and like it, there's no accounting for bad taste.

Actually, it says, "Sapnish". :)

Be careful what you wish for. If that Sapnish-speaking dolt Farrah makes her way out of town, who will replace her? My bet is a UNO freshman, since KETV has already hired sophomores to be on-air reporters. In fact, aren't the replacements always worse than their predecessors? The only exceptions I can think of are Owen Lei replacing Reggie Kumar, Lisa Stites replacing Laura Liggett and Kristi Andersen replacing Mike Sigmund.

Compared to every other station in town, that's an amazingly good track record.

Did anyone notice the "stripes" on Fazal's face the other night? WHO is doing her makeup?????

I don't want to pick on poor Farrah because I almost kind of like her. But she (or somebody) really needs to clean up the typos and grammatical errors in that resume.

Her video reel was slightly better. I'm glad she included the hard-hitting coverage of the shocking discovery of "that big white thing" that was dumped in a public park.

What about the attack of the basement mushrooms?

Dumb Anguish said...

Don't remind me of that. It quite frankly scared the hell out of me. "Mold in the Heartland". Its the kind of taboo, keep-you-up-at-night topic that even the brave and unflappable Mike McKnight dares not approach.

Did anyone else see her screw up her "live shot" from in front of the Witherspoon Mansion?

Todd "I need an Optometrist" Andrews tossed it to Farah; she's standing in front of the house as it goes up in smoke, then babbles about how the owners were "...out of town, but they have been contacted, and they are now on their way back out of town."

Not being able to just leave it at that, she rambles on about how the house had "over 20 bedrooms", but in the story on KETV's website, it says there are 8. Maybe she's using some "fuzzy math"...
