Can You Say P.U.B.L.I. C.I.T.Y Stunt?



THIS was the rage of the Internet over the weekend; I smell a publicity stunt of mass proportions which ironically I'm aiding and abetting --oh, what the hell.

  1. I don't smell a publicity stunt. I smell a clueless station who just embarrassed the hell out of its talent on the air.

    1. Why is it more and more I see objects, who should be referred to as "that," called "who," which is reserved for people, and "that" used for people, ie, "People that like hotdogs..."

      There is some grey area. For example, if you regard a TV station as a collection of people, the pronoun "who" would apply; on the other hand, if a TV station is an object, "that" would better apply.

      I did want to add, "but who gives a shit"?

  2. Her earlier dress created havoc with the chroma key wall.
    She had a spare dress.
    They didn't plan it...they just ran with it like the pros they are.

    1. Exactly, nothing more, nothing less.

  3. She looks HOT and doesn't need a sweater! What on earth was that guy thinking who was handing it to her? On the other hand, I wish there were librarians around who are as fetching as her!

    1. The guy probably wants to co-anchor morning shows on KGO with that Reggie thing.

  5. This may be part of a publicity stunt and I think it failed miserably for Chris Burrous, the anchor who insisted she throw on a sweater.

    Some of you may remember that this stunt may have worked a few months back when she wore a green outfit in front a green screen (a big no-no on TV), and he was there to provide his dark colored coat to offset the problem -- it got a lot of in-studio laughs and the video generated some buzz on YouTube and elsewhere.

    My feeling was that it was Chris Burrous, not upper management, making a judgement call about her skimpy and flashy outfit, trying to make it a joke similar to last time, and it simply didn't work. On the flip side, I think this event will boost name recognition for Liberté Chan and, therefore, she gets a lot of publicity out of this -- and I think some good publicity when people look at the tape and the mostly positive comments regarding her selection of the outfit and why she wore it.

    I have seen weather gals on SoCal TV, both LA and especially in San Diego, who have worn much skimpier attire over the past few years and nobody frets about it.

  6. She seems like a perfect match for Natasha and Reggie at KGO in the mornings. Three of a kind.

    1. If you were to tell me you have found a woman who is more beautiful than Natasha, I wouldn't believe you! She missed Hollywood by 400 miles. Wait till she starts to ramp it up!!

    2. She's already "ramped it up". When is that interview with Jenny Craig airing?

  7. What the problem with her little black dress. Heather Holmes has worn similar stuff in the past. Heather is our party girl. Party on Heather!

  8. It's the Wonderful World Of Eye Candy, brought to us in living color and high definition. They think we watch the News for the News, don't think so! Whoever handed her the coat should be water boarded!!

  9. Get your eyes off Natasha, infidels. She is mine!

    1. No, she's mine!! First time I saw her, I immediately turned off the TV, went down to my local FCC office and filed a claim! Sorry, not really!!

  10. This was that pompous ass Chris Burroughs (Burros, Boros, Burrows - whatever) and his lame attempt to call more attention to himself. I was in LA, watching this broadcast, and he is the same smarmy jerk he was in Sacramento.

  11. She shouldn't have gone on air dressed like that to begin with. How unprofessional. She might as well have wore a low cut dress so the viewers could see some rack and a very short skirt so we could see her ass cheeks. Very embarrassing for her and the station. Fuck the news director. He/she was an idiot for allowing this to happen.

  12. Damn, LA has Liberte Chan, Evelyn Taft, Jackie Johnson, Maria Quiban, and Olga Ospina all doing weather in mini dresses. Too bad we lost Christina Loren.

  13. Chris Burrous is an egotistical jerk and should be ashamed of himself for pulling this humiliating act against one of his colleagues...one of his direct co-workers. He's actually one of the most disliked, basically hated at KTLA, but nobody will say that publicly. And look at his bio -- he's worked at a multitude of stations (including in the Bay Area) -- and obviously doesn't have much staying power because he's worthless at what he does.

    Best and most liked KTLA male anchors:

    Carlos Amezcua, Morning News (now at KUSI-TV, San Diego)

    Hal Fishman, News at Ten (deceased 2007)
