Unchanging

KETVNewswatchSeven's gaffe-master Fubar Fazal was at her usual level of excellence on Tuesday's 10 p.m. newscast, delivering an unnecessary live report on Omaha's efforts to lure a second minor league team to the area.

When anchor Brandi Peterson threw it to her, Fubar was standing in front of a big earth-mover of some sort, which was fine...until she had to speak.

"Workers have already started building this ballpark here (patting the earth-mover) in downtown Omaha," she began. Watching the clip, you'd swear she thinks the machine is the ballpark. 

She continued, "It's going to be home to an independent league of ballplayers, it could be home for an independent league of ballplayers who plays here over the summers."

After a lengthy taped segment, Fubar was live again when she said,

"Now the Sarpy County administrator told me tonight that the Omaha, uh, leaders' attempts to attract a new team here will not affect the discussions the Sarpy County's leaders are having with the [Omaha] Royals. He did tell me, though, he doesn't know yet how it will affect the details of that discussion."

Huh? He doesn't know how "it" (whatever that means) will affect the details of the discussions that won't be affected? 

Why do they allow this woman to do live reports? More to the point, why do they keep her at all? She is the one glaring,  unfixable fly in the ointment at KETV, and why she isn't escorted to the door is mystifying.

Enjoy the awful report, in all its badness, here.

Didn't Nebraska vote to dump Affirmative Action?

Thank her, be nice to her, then hand her a severance check and a 1-way ticket to Anywhere, USA.

God love her.

I'm sure her heart is in the right place, but I'm just not sure where her brain is.
