Is it better to be feared or loved?
That depends … what kind of “love” are we talking about (kidding, kidding)?
While we prefer to be feared AND loved, we’re happy with New York Magazine‘s designation of our founding editor as South Carolina’s “blogger to fear.” This pronouncement appears in the advance copy for the April 11 [...]
Is it better to be feared or loved?
L’etat, C’est Sic Willie …
That’s evidently the viewpoint of prominent South Carolina RINO political consultant Wesley Donehue, who delivered an unusually complimentary rebuke of our founding editor Wednesday on his website Process Story.
Donehue was criticizing FITS for (allegedly) misreporting a minor component of a forgettable S.C. State House story, but in the process wound up [...]
Last week our founding editor Will Folks was invited to film a ninety-second segment feature commentary at WLTX TV 19 (CBS – Columbia, S.C.). The commentary would have been part of the station’s “I’m Just Sayin’” series, which features local politicians and news makers offering their opinions on recent events.
Ordinarily, “Sic Willie” is inclined to [...]
The S.C. Budget and Control Board (B&CB) has reportedly banned its employees from reading political web sites – particularly FITSNews.
Those who defy the ban could lose their jobs.
News of the policy – reportedly ordered by Gov. Nikki Haley and B&CB director Eleanor Kitzman – began breaking Friday afternoon on social networking sites like Facebook and [...]
Based on credible, independently-confirmed information obtained from anonymous sources over the course of several months, this website published a lengthy report twelve days ago regarding the alleged pre-Chick-Fil-A bowl activities of University of South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia.
(To read the report, click here).
Now, we’ll be the first to admit that there are conflicting accounts as [...]
Amidst a flurry of depressing news here at home and abroad, we think it’s worth stopping for a moment and finding something you can smile about.
To that end, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to the WYFF TV editor who approved the following headline …

Really … [...]
Welcome to Thursday’s edition of the “post,” our sort of sometimes attempt to psychoanalyze the internet …
In South Carolina news, the “battle of the (government) branches” is back on …
One week after S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley made a splash by unveiling the contents of her legislative report cards, state lawmakers fired back by introducing legislation [...]
We’re pretty sure this was supposed to stay a secret for a bit longer, but such is life in the fish bowl …
Come October of this year (Lord willin’), there will be another spawn of Sic Willie for the world to contend with. That’s right, the lovely Mrs. Sic is with child …
Obviously it’s too [...]
Plenty of politicos are eagerly anticipating the release of our founding editor’s tell-all book regarding his rough-and-tumble first decade on the South Carolina political scene.
Of course one person isn’t so eager to see what Sic Willie (a.k.a. Will Folks) has to say – S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley.
In a Sunday interview with The New York Times, [...]
We weren’t scared last spring when our founding editor jeopardized this website’s very existence by announcing that he had gotten all “inappropriatey” with Nikki Haley. And while Sic Willie (a.k.a. Will Folks) may not have conclusively proven his claim (yet), he’s given as good as he’s gotten in the non-stop war that’s been waged against [...]
When he first learned how to play the bass guitar, our founding editor was (surprise, surprise) “overplaying.”
He eventually learned that the instrument (like a lot of other things in life) was only 10 percent about “the notes you hit” – and ninety percent “when you hit them.” He also learned that good songs were not [...]
