At first I thought this was just a comment on the sometime vacuity of my profession.

But no, it's real. And as Mattel says News Anchor Barbie comes with:

  • Dressed in a powerful pink and black ensemble
  • Comes with microphone, news folder, and camera

I have nothing more to say. It's early yet, I think I'll go look for my powerful pink and black ensemble for the day.
