MEET CNN’S NEW SOUTH CAROLINA SCRIBE … 

|| By FITSNEWS || Elizabeth Landers is a CNN video producer currently covering South Carolina – or more specifically the quadrennial “First in the South” presidential goat rodeo that’s rolling through our fair state with increasing frequency of late.

Landers went to Tufts, dabbles in fashion and is a “Tallahassee Lassie,” according to her Twitter page … which you should probably follow if you’re going to follow the 2016 presidential election.

Why are we writing about her?  Well, apparently Landers was out and about in downtown Columbia, S.C. last week when Mark Plowden – a staffer for S.C. lieutenant governor Henry McMaster – informed her she would soon be appearing on this website because she was “hot.”

Hmmmm … was this what our sources meant when they told us Landers had been “warned” about FITS’ founding editor Will Folks?

It’s true that in years past the presence of an attractive presidential reporter on the Palmetto political scene would have resulted in us immediately objectifying Landers – resulting in extensive web leering on the part of our founding editor and his (army of) less gentlemanly commenters.

But now?  Eh …

That sort of thing just feels so … obligatory.

So in lieu of that we’ll simply welcome Landers to the Palmetto State, give her a social media plug and promise to bring you any stories she publishes which we find instructive as it relates to the presidential candidates, the issues they’re debating or the media marketplace in which they’re operating.

Gosh its no fun being a grown up website …

Welcome m’lady, and best wishes.

SC politics . . . you’re jumping in the deep end.

And it’s dirty and smells. Should be some great experience though.

Now that she’s been exposed and introduced state-wide, we should expect some bikini photos pretty damn soon because this lovely lass is not going to avoid the beaches and resort areas. Will’s stringers will FIND, FOTO, and FORWARD those glorious works of art to us “gentlemanly commenters” ….

She was warned about FITS because she’s hot? Yeah, she totally got her job based on her merits. All the 24/7 news channels hire based on looks. CNN’s Candy Crowley is probably the most notable exception. Jeez, this generation….

This is true. I went to High School with Ainsley Earhardt and she’s was pretty damn smart, but she and everyone else knows why she was hired by Fox News.

To get on at FNC the women have to be smart and good to look at. The liberal networks take the dumb , ugly ones. Dose Rachel Madcow ring a bell ?

Nice.Keep focused on the ‘key’ to this election-TURNOUT. Networks and MSM are trying too keep Christians from voting in 2016.

Obama got 3 MILLION fewer votes in 2012 than 2008. Hillary will do worse.

All about getting the vote out and turning ‘off’ the MSM.

Were any of those smart and good-looking women on FNC awarded a Rhodes Scholarship or did any of them earn a PhD at Oxford?

Thought not.

True indeed. She’s obviously very academically talented, but she still acts like a shrill, angry boy on TV and makes me want to poke myself in the eyes with sharp objects to distract myself… ;-)

News Babes June 7, 2015 at 8:42 pm

I really like Ainsley, she’s a sweetheart and she’s smart as a whip. She is a good reporter and the camera doesn’t do her justice. She’s prettier in person.

She ended up marrying a Clemson boy, so she finally wised up in that area.

She’s not hard-down ugly either. Nor is she “bull-dyke” butch. She’s more androgynous than anyone else. And extremely intelligent.

I just recently realized that Rachel Maddow and Mo Rocca were not the same person.

FastEddy23 June 8, 2015 at 11:45 am

Aside: speaking of powerful, good looking women, one might look into the Chief Fire Control Petty Officers list on the USS “Amazing” Grace Hopper … arguably the most powerful warship afloat, ever. (If the president were to push “the red button”, it would ring onboard this ship.)

Now, I dare anyone to tell me those girls ain’t good lookin’.

sparklecity June 8, 2015 at 12:40 pm

And she has a GREAT sense of humor!!!!

Plus she takes making the perfect “Old Fashioned” seriously!!!!

sparklecity June 7, 2015 at 10:25 pm

Rachel Maddow has a great sense of humor. No doubt she is a lez but ugly she ain’t and Mika Brezinski is looks,class and smarts all rolled into one package.
That being said, I’m pissed at Fox Business News allowing Imus to go off cable/satellite TV but stay on radio. The shit they have on there now is just about as exciting as watching paint dry. SiriusFM (oops, I MEANT Sirius XM….) dropped Fox Business News till Imus switched to Fox. Now that he is gone I look for SiriusFM(there I go again…) to drop them again and I wouldn’t blame them if they did.
Fox News itself ain’t nothing but right-wing propaganda
For big time news CNN is still the one I go to. You know what your are getting with MSNBC but Fox is nothing but hypocritical BS

“Russia Today” gets some hot presenters as well.

There’s nothing wrong with finding women that have some smarts to go with decent speaking skills that are easy on the eyes.

It’s not like ugly chicks have a lock on brains.

A reason the left has always had difficulties finding smart and good lookers is those embroiled deeply in left leaning politics usually are plug ugly losers.

Me? I’m the handsome one on the right in my HS year book.

We had almost 100 students in our HS class … 98 of them were not photogenic.

And that “unofficial” slogan (again so very true…): “We can be bought if the price is right”

“Shifty” was for the benefit of Nikki Haley from her days at Clemson — she won’t take the bait on Fitsnews to respond — maybe that one, isolated escapade has evaporated from her youthful memories …
