Well, now we know what Barbie’s boyfriend watched.

I assume that’s this fellow:

Chris Rene Marrou (born November 12, 1947) is former news anchor for KENS 5-TV in San Antonio, Texas from 1973 to 2009. Marrou is known for doing segments where he involved himself in different occupations or tried unique endeavors (such as eating a hot chili pepper). At the end of the broadcast he ran the "Eyewitness Newsreel," for which he added humorous commentary to clips from the news.

That can be deadly. But it does keep people coming back and staying to the end. Not something you could've done in the 60s, either; back then, news was serious. News was a calling.
