Scarlett Fakhar is no longer with FOX 26

Scarlett Fakhar
A Fox Television Stations Representatives confirms to mikemcguff.com that FOX 26 KRIV reporter Scarlett Fakhar is no longer with the owned and operated station.

Last week she made headlines around the world for posting her supportive thoughts on President-elect Donald Trump's selection.

She has since apologized for the post.

Fakhar came to Fox 26 last year from Fox 7 KTBC Austin.

  1. Her post was over the top and unprofessional, even if it was on her personal page. She never was that bright, but to post that was just stupid decision making.
    I hope her idiocy, fake christian schtick and borderline racism raised a red flag in her fiance's head. She's not worth the high maintenance I suspect she requires.

    2. So, what was racist about what she said? Why do you think that it's okay for blacks and Hispanics to say things about whites on there and not be fired? Why is it okay for them to support Obama, or Clinton, who actually did illegal things.

    3. Anon 9:42, name some local black or hispanic journalists who posted comments similar to what the Bubble Headed Bleached Blonde posted, but about whites.
      Your comment reeks of so much ignorance, it could've been posted Scarlett herself.

    4. Gosh, you called me "ignorant." How original. There are several on Fox 26; especially, on Friday night and one on 11. Your commends are coming across as pretty degrading toward women. You just don't seem very intelligent. What was racist about what she said, boo? Oh, wait. She spoke the truth. BTW, she is not all white.

      Delete
    5. the people on friday night are not reporters! THey are opinion people/commentators. If she wants to go be a commentator she can say whatever she wants and argue with Quannel X, if she wants to be a reporter too bad, keep it to yourself.

    6. So, Isiah is not a reporter, or anchor? Um, okay. She did keep it to herself on her private page. Please tell me how she should suffer consequences, but not others, boo. You like that station, bit no person with an IQ above 100, is a regular viewer.

    7. WJLA producer who did the same thing.. but trashed Trump is still working. She is bound by the same rules as an anchor.

    8. When "the scarlett factor" becomes a show she can say anything she wants on there. WJLA producer should get disciplined as well but different owners will do different things. aren't you conservatives all about state and local control? Now you want all TV stations everywhere bound by the same disciplinary rules? MAybe that producer is really good at her job, so the station will treat her differently.

      Just like any other job, the better and more irreplaceable you are, the more you can get away with. Isn't that common sense?

    9. It's quite scary that you think your arguments make sense. You can"t fire one person and not another who does the same thing. Plus, you keep contradicting yourself. First, you say she is a reporter and can't do this, but if she had her own shown she cound, but yet then you say he has his own show, so he can say whatever, but yet he also anchors and reports . Basically, you are sayang if someone is a minority, agrees with you, or you think they have talent, it's okay. Both of them suck and that is why they work , and worked, at that station and in chappy Hpuston, where most TV and radio people don"t even speak proper English. Also, getting away with stuff had zero to do with talent, andore with kissing ass, race and playing the game. What does government have to do with TV people? You just are severely lackino in the logic and reasoning departments. Bye, now. I'm done troll.

    10. No you're just clueless and can't see the lines. YOu don't think in every company across America one person can get fired for the same thing someone else gets away with? As for the rest of your post, even translation.com can't fix that, so no one knows what you're trying to get across. GO back to your boycott of a broadway show that's sold out for 2 years.

      Delete
    11. Honey, you are dealing with two different people on here. First of all, who said anything about two different companies. We are just pointing out the different standard for different races and different political affiliations. Plus, how certain people at her ex station can say certain things, but she couldn't. I'm sorry if you don't have the logic and reasoning to see that. Please give me evidence that I'm boycotting a crappy show that has dumb liberals like yourself actually thinking that it's okay for WHITE historical figures to be played by non-whites and how it's okay for them to openly discriminate. This is what you and others like you are worried about. You won't have any control, or power over certain people once he gets into of office. You won't be able to ruin someone's life, just because they don't agree with you, or they say something you don't like. Is it okay if all white actors play the characters on a Broadway show of " Roots?" Just wondering? I mean, that isn't even based on a true, or factual story.

    12. You're so dense. I gave a perfect reason why the other person in DC wasn't fired. They dont have the same boss so what's your argument? Every tv station has to have the same rules for employees? If a construction company in Texas fired someone for some reason, some construction worker in DC should abide by the same rule? Not always unless there's a federal law.

      Stop making a fool of yourself. We still got white people playing Asians all the time no one cares. Hispanics are still gangsters thugs 90% of the time, are you mad about that? If the show was so bad and racist, why did Mike Pence bring his kid there and then say how great it was on TV today??

      I should should charge you for these lessons.

      Delete
    13. Boo, you really need some reading comprehension help. I'm sick of constantly explaining what was written, to you. You need to stay ignorant and believe what you want. BTW, the chick from Fresh Off the Boat and The Star Trek guy are always whining and complaining about whites playing Asians. Italians play gangsters 100 percent of the time. Why don't you have a problem with that? Um, that wasn't his kid. It was his nephew, so it's obvious you are lying about that one. If he did say that, it's because he has " class" unlike you and the nothings in " Hamilton."

      Delete
    14. I can't even start breaking down all the nonsense you have packed into 3 run-on sentences. I only have time with one, Pence did bring his daughter there. Check the interview on Fox News genius. So who's lying? As usual, another misinformed Trump supporter here.

  4. of course Fox 26 would snuff her out for supporting Trump. Just listen to the factor and you will see the other side of the Fox 26 team. That ass cant say anything nice about any republican and just look at the people he has on his show Friday nights a t 9pm OMG Attorney Jones and she is another rasist just like Cary

  5. I just read her complete post for context. It is worse than the snippet listed above. This is what happens when kids are sent to private schools who are more interested in developing future conservatives than actually educating children.
    Blaming President Obama for cops being attacked is insane.

    2. I think President Obama has been exceptionally well for this country. I have prospered with promotions at a top firm here in Houston, TX and so have many other friends who I graduated college with. Blaming ANY president for personal misfortunes is silly as all heck.

      Delete
    3. So, you can't blame him, but you can give him credit? I doubt your promotions had anything to do with talent, intelligence, or are work. They often don't. Who are you and where do you work, so we can confirm your story?

  6. Good riddance! She should have known beyond better.

  7. Wow, checking her twitter her last story just happened to be about a Trump supporter getting beat? If the post was a fireable offense, how could they let possibly her go out and do a Trump story?

    Makes absolutely no sense.

    ReplyDelete
  8. You can think Obama is the worse man in America...as a NEWS ANCHOR, NO ONE SHOULD KNOW IT! Yeah, It's freedom of speech true enough, but when you sign a contract, you are representing that station 24/7...no matter your personal views. Period. You create more problems for the station than anything.

    1. But yet it's okay for the minorities on Houston stations to say whatever they want. I remember several months ago, an anchor on another stations did a whole speech on how he had to talk to his daughters about cops, because they are going after blacks, basically. Why is he still on the air? Why are other minority people on Fox 26 allowed to say whatever they want about Trump and about whites? There is something really wrong with you and you can't see the discrimination and severe double standards in this city and around America.

  13. I'm a close friend of Scarlett and she is distraught right now. It's sad. She has told me she's considering suing Fox 26.

    Also if you're wondering if she's ever going back on TV the answer is NO. She isn't going be back on TV News ever again, she's considering a career change.

    1. Sue for what? Any TV person knows these contracts basically say we can fire you whenever, and for whatever reason we feel like. Maybe she should consider adding real friends on facebook since obviously she added someone who wasn't really one.

      Take the L and move on. Very petty what she's posted lately. I'm sure sure THe Blaze will bring her on.

    2. Um, if she is fired for saying, or writing this ,but others are not, she has a case. It's really that simple

    3. Good thing she's never going back to TV. Not that anyone would want her tainted goods. She never should've been hired in the first place.

    4. She plans to sue Fox 26 for religious discrimination. Let's hope she does well in it. I'm so sad for my friend, she lost her job and has huge student loans to pay off. It's scaring her.

      No she won't go on The Blaze, she doesn't want to be on TV News ever again, that's something she has told me already.

      Delete
    5. In case you're wondering what she posted had a religious motivation, so firing her for that she felt like she was persecuted.

      Delete
    6. "Um, if she is fired for saying, or writing this ,but others are not, she has a case. It's really that simple"

      Stop, you cannot be serious. Your argument of "some people at work get treated special!!" will be laughed out of court. THis is not religious, she even said so that she got fired for sharing her "conservative" views.

      I'm sure she'll be back on TV somewhere. Just like when a fighter loses and says "i'm done i'll never fight again", they'll come around when the smoke clears. The problem is that post showed her to be unfit to be unbias in her job as a reporter. YOu can tell, the next freaking day she did a story on a Trump supporter getting beat! Gee what a coincidence!!

      PErsonally I don't care what they do, if anything let her go for just lack of experience to be on in such a big city. She says it's never been worse and more divided than after OBama took over? Yea there was this little thing called the Civil War, Civil Rights Movement, World Wars, pretty sure Vietnam War divided the country.

      I just read the post again and she went on to reminisce about the America she once knew! Dating back to what? Carson Daly hosting TRL? Dave Ward is choking on his food reading that.

    7. " THis is not religious, she even said so that she got fired for sharing her "conservative" views."

      You don't understand her. She has conservative views mainly because of her religion. She is what you call a typical Evangelical conservative Christian you always hear about. She plans to sue for that.

      Delete
    8. So, allowing certain people of a certain race to say something will be laughed out of court? Um, okay. You just don't sound very intelligent. As far as Obama dividing us, she is talking about the last 40 years. I'my sorry, if you are too dense to realize that. Funny how you only have a problem with her being biased.use be, because she is not black,Hispanic,or a non-Trump supporter, right? You sound like a very bitter and sad person. Maybe, go see a therapist? I think we are all done with you.

    9. "I'm sure she'll be back on TV somewhere. Just like when a fighter loses and says "i'm done i'll never fight again", they'll come around when the smoke clears."

      For the last time, Scarlett ISN'T coming back to TV. I have told you that, she has told me that. Everyone who thinks she is coming back is being too wishful.

      Delete
    10. Firing her had nothing to do with her "religious convictions" or her occasional habit of invoking religion in her self absorbed posts. Firing her had to do with completely unprofessional act and comments, and likely acts that violated her contract. Once they began placing her as an occasional anchor, she thought she was the Bee's Knees. Truth is, she was just another bad local anchor.

      Delete
    11. Wow no wonder she's in the position she's at with such delusional "friends." I'm sure she said she's never coming back because the wound is fresh, but that's what they all say going out the door, then some opportunity comes up and they're back. Come back to this post when she returns when the smoke clears.

      And where in the world do you get "about the last 40 years?" She is nowhere near 40, Obama has been in office for 8 years, her exact words were "this country has become more violent and racist under the obama administration then ever."

      So where did you pluck 40 years out of? If you even want to use that metric, about 40 years ago there was the Jonestown MAssacre, Iran took our hostages(guess she should know about that one), we screwed up a rescue and Ronald Reagan almost got assasinated. Imagine what she would say if that happened under Obama! Look how divided our country is!! So bad someone tried to kill him!!

      IT's sad she doesn't have a diverse enough group of friends where at least one of two can step up and tell her why she's wrong.

      Delete
    12. Boo, you were the one talking about crap that happened 50 years ago. Jesus, can you even follow the crap you throw out. How do you know who her friends are? BTW, I read she is Iranian. Maybe, you should start hanging in UT with pals who have IQS over 100. Crime has gome up in the time he has been in office. What was wrong and racist about what she said? You are such a fool. I feel sad and sorry for you.

      Delete
    13. You're lost. I brought up stuff that happened 50+ years ago because her post mentioned the country under Obama is worse than its "EVER" been. I was simply disproving that short-sighted statement. Then someone plucked 40 years out of thin air in a clueless attempt to defend her. I don't know who her friends are but obviously not enough are telling her to just shut up and lay low which is the smart thing to do in PR which is what I do. Instead she comes out guns blazing, making her look worse for any future employer. It's obvious she doesn't have all the right friends because a "friend" who saw that post, tattled on herin the first place.

      You're the fool if you think this is the most the country's ever been divided. YOu're the fool if you long for the glory days of America that you remember. She's Iranian so what?? Does she speak Farsi? Embody the culture in some way? Since youre so infatuated, go through her posts and find me something where she references or celebrates a special day in her culture. Odds are she's like some of my fellow Hispanic classmates who dont' even speak the langauge but were the first to claim their background to get into better colleges and apply for scholarships.

      Delete
    14. You are really sounding like you have mental problems. Have you seen a therapist for help? It's quite scary. Once again, you keep contradicting yourslef. Now, we felt sorry for you, because it's obvious you are a very lonely person who goes on message boards and writes things that don't make sense, but this is getting old. Please get the help and find some friends, or maybe get a dog.

      Delete
    15. I need help? I bring up cogent arguments you can't dispute so you have to resort to personal insults! That's what some of your Trump lovers do.

      Riddle me this, she said the country is divded more than "EVER" since Obama took over. Is that true or not? SImple question. If you even muster up an answer, that proves to me you need to pick up a history book. So save face and just close your browser.

    16. Scarlett Fahkar has been, and remains, a self absorbed clueless brat. Like most bleached anchors with no sense and lots of implants, she mistakes attention as agreement with her dumb comments. She is, was and always will be an unqualified somewhat pretty face who let her looks allow her to think her stupidity was right. She's as dumb as a box of rocks. But more racist than a box of rocks. #Trash

  14. I was never a fan, but I really don't see how she would not win a discrimination lawsuit. They have people on there who openly express their democratic views and are still there and have people who are racist on there. I guess it is okay if it is directed towards whites. There is a Mexican-American chick who is on the Isiah show who openly expresses and says things about whites on her Facebook page. Why is that okay?

    ReplyDelete
  15. She may have apologized for the post (including the sentence "It was wholly inappropriate, as a journalist, to do that."), but she has since REMOVED her apology. This entire saga shows that she never should have been in the journalism business in the first place.

  18. Hooray for Scarlett. I think she will advance for this publicity. Will FoxNews or Trump hire her? Her mistake was apologizing instead of doubling down. I wait for major media to apologize for being a shameless propagandist in favor of Hillary & against Trump. Will Jorge Ramos univision apologize? She is the daughter of an Iranian immigrant, I think.

    1. both sides are foolish here. If they wanted all this to go away all they had to do was suspend her. By firing her, it only caught more attention.

      As for her, she just needed to sit idle and wait for it to blow over. Instead she claims persecution? Must be the most insignifcant case of persecution in the history of humanity. I did see in the interview she did not say she was done with TV like some "friend" here suggested.

  23. Teachers, police and frefighters, businessmen and women and others are routinely fired for violating their company social media policy, or in their eyes expressing their "free speech" despite being representatives of their companies at all times. Scarlett is guilty of one if not both of those. She also may have breached her contract, though she won't discuss that. And regardless, she lost all impartiality and journalistic credibility. She deserved to be fired.

    And another thing, i am happy Trump won. But it's amazing how many myopic Trump fans simply assume you must be liberal and a Hillary supporter if you speak against Fahkar. There are a LOT of dumb people in this world.
