May 1 was a bittersweet day for FITS as we officially said goodbye to someone who has been an indispensable part of our family for several years.
Nancy Mace, best known for being the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, has formally concluded negotiations with FITS founding editor Will Folks – thus ending her six-year professional [...]
Posting will be light for the next three days as our founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) travels to Myrtle Beach, S.C. with his family for the 100th birthday celebration of his grandmother.
That’s right, 100 years …
How cool is that?
Anyway we’ll be back in the saddle again come Monday so try not to miss [...]
For those of you who missed it, The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper ran a big story this week on Nancy Mace – who has been a part of the FITS family for the last five years. The story explores Mace’s interest in a possible bid for the U.S. Senate against left-leaning “Republican” Lindsey Graham.
Here’s the relevant [...]
This website’s founding editor is loathed by the political establishment in South Carolina … especially one politician in particular.
But he’s adored by the next generation, as evidenced by a steady slew of speaking engagements on college campuses across the state. And unlike some people, Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) never accepts payment for his appearances [...]
Two weeks ago, Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post released his list of the best state political blogs in America. And naturally, this website was on his list.
Also recognized? Palmetto Public Record, a liberal blog based in Columbia, S.C. Here’s the thing, though … as far as we can tell Palmetto Public Record hasn’t posted an [...]
We try to keep “programming notes” to a minimum around here, but given the recent buzz surrounding a member of the FITS family we felt it was important to keep our readers in the loop.
Nancy Mace – a co-owner of FITSNews, Inc. – has entered into negotiations to sell her share of the business. For the [...]
Posting will be somewhat light this week as FITS’ intrepid founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) treks to our nation’s capitol for some important meetings on Capitol Hill.
What’s he doing in D.C.? “Conspiring to conspire,” as Luis Guzmán’s character in Traffic once said.
Hopefully this particular visit will be less eventful than Sic’s 2009 trip, during [...]
Welcome to the wire! Our pseudo-regular effort to engage the barrage of tips, comments, questions and snippets we receive on a daily basis here at FITS …
Today’s big story? The ongoing debate over “The Sequester,” a modest $85 billion reduction in federal spending that has everybody’s panties in a wad. For some needed perspective on [...]
South Carolina’s biggest, baddest blog got a bold new facelift over the weekend … but are the haters still gonna hate? And will its technologically illiterate founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) figure out how to use it?
Guess we’ll find out soon …
Our goal with FITS’ second major redesign was to come up with [...]
For those of you used to the usual incessant barrage of content from our website, we apologize for the dearth of fresh news today. Our founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a Sic Willie) and his crack legal team have been busy fighting his extradition to the Pee Dee region of the state on rumored contempt of [...]
Earlier this month we published a story entitled the “War Against FITS,” which chronicled the various status quo machinations targeting this website.
As we noted then, “leading the anti-FITS crusade (not surprisingly) is S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley …”
Haley’s office is obsessed with our website – going so far as to demand that certain groups fire employees [...]
