Courtney on Cavuto!

Courney Friel on Your World with Neil Cavuto today: Crazy! Of course, Cavuto fans know that he likes the lissome lovelies: notice the frequent exposure that he lavishes on the voluptuous Victoria’s Secret models? Few red-blooded males blame him.

However, when FNC’s entertainment correspondent and former Maxim model suddenly appeared today as a Your World business reporter explaining Hyundai’s special return program for car buyers who lose their jobs, the author was taken aback. Even if Courtney has handled her entertainment correspondent responsibilities well, she has had some difficulties when she tried to take on more serious news as a Fox & Friends co-host. Nevertheless, she did well in her latest round robin role.

After the car segment, maybe a casino or lingerie segment is in the offing for Your World with Courtney.

    We thankfully missed that, but we still believe that she’s best suited to being a contestant on “Rock of Love.”

    BW, Courntey definitely seems better suited to be an entertainment reporter.

  3. Al Says:

    Ms. Friel isn’t very good at entertainment reporting, either. While she does best with her scripted presentations, more often than not even those are rough and awkward. Where she really falls apart is when an anchor asks a time-filling question and she has to extemporaneously respond. Sometimes she just loses it.

    I’m convinced she’s a smart woman so this isn’t an intelligence thing, but a good television journalist, entertainment or otherwise, can ad-lib smoothly and take their own flubs in stride. Thus far Ms. Friel hasn’t been able to. Maybe she just tries too hard. If I was her boss I’d put one of her friends behind the camera guy and tell her to talk at that person and forget about playing to the camera.

    We agree with much of what Al says, except we strongly disagree about her brain power. In all honestly, we think she’s an uneducated moron.

    If she tries to talk about anything other than Hollywood (20-somethings, not Teh Olds, which is anyone over 35), her appalling lack of knowledge quickly becomes apparent. She also has serious problems with the English language. Proper grammar eludes her, as do the meanings of common words and phrases. She has the mentality (and apparently the education) of a teenager. On her old You Tube channel, under “favorite books,” she listed a bunch of magazines, and we’re not exactly talking about “Foreign Affairs” or “Scientific American.” Not even “TIME” or “Newsweek.” Nope, her faves listed were celeb and beauty magazines, like “People,” “Star,” “Glamour,” “Allure.”

    But we know what you mean, Al, about how she just falls apart when having to…use her brain. We were unfortunate enough to catch her on Cavuto the other day (why he keeps putting her on to mangle stories, we don’t know, but we’re giving up on his show) and she just started giggling in the middle of it. Very professional.

    Also, Al, she can’t forget about the camera, because she’s constantly posing and preening for it.

    She really doesn’t belong on TV, and how she got hired and stays on the air when far more intelligent and competent women (who are also beautiful) can’t, is a huge mystery to us.
