Former KARK'er Named Press Secretary for Huckabee

A blog reader left this in the comments section of the Alice Stewart post:

Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Monday that Alice Stewart, formerly of KARK-TV in Little Rock, has joined the governor's staff as press secretary. Stewart has been a weekend anchor and reporter for KARK-TV. She will join Jim Harris, Huckabee's director of press operations, as a spokesman for the governor.

Stewart, an Atlanta native, graduated in 1988 from the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia in Athens. She worked as a reporter and producer for a television station in Dothan, Ala., before returning to Atlanta as an associate producer for two television stations. Stewart later was a producer and anchor for a television station in Savannah, Ga.

Stewart moved to Little Rock in 1998 to work for KARK-TV. She has an extensive background in government and political coverage. Stewart covered the 1988 Democratic National Convention, the Georgia Legislature, the Arkansas Legislature and Wesley Clark's 2004 presidential campaign. She has won a number of journalism awards.

Stewart is an avid runner who has completed 11 marathons. She helped train the governor for this year's Little Rock Marathon and helped train the members of the Arthritis Foundation's Joints In Motion marathon team.

Stewart is a member of St. James United Methodist Church in Little Rock and a volunteer for the Museum of Discovery.

"Arkansans are familiar with Alice and respect her work," Huckabee said. "I'm delighted to have her as part of our team."

Does this mean she and Jim Harris will now have to participate in a covenant marraige.

What kind of dough is she making? Someone find out. It's FOIA. Let's figure out how many decimal points she added to her salary.

She was fired... and then picked up this job. Huckabee will now find out who the real Alice Stewart is.. and he won't like it.

Share as a pool reporter? You think Alice shares anything with anyone? Huckabee has made a real mistake.

Why would you go to work for someone who doesn't have too much time left in office and you'll have find another job in the near future. I guess I like stability and can't understand other people who don't.

The freaks that can't move on with their lives because Alice beat them to an interview 5 or 6 years ago don't show much class or intelligence for the other stations in Arkansas. You wave your ignorance like a flag. Congrats to you Alice. Huckabee could not have chosen a better person.

The comment was made as to why she would take a job with a lame duck governor. I think the bigger story here is what is Huckabee going to do next? Looks like Alice knows.

Huckabee will run for president... and lose. Alice took this job because she didn't have any other offers.

Alice has worked her ass off in Arkansas and her work ethic has always paid off. She's a top-notch journalist and a smart woman. Huckabee may not have much time left as Governor, but he is on the national radar and Alice could have an easy entry back into television if that's what she wants. Huckabee couldn't have chosen a better press secretary.

He could have chosen someone with character and honesty.

I've known Alice for a long time and she's a wonderful person. She's very active in her church, and was a Sunday School teacher before she took the weekend anchor position. I worked with her for several years and really enjoyed working with her. She is incredibly funny and extremely professional. I'm so proud of her for getting this new job and I'm glad she's staying in Arkansas.

There are two sides to Alice.

Alice has character, she wasn't fired and she didn't have to stay in Arkansas. And guess what -- she has better things to do than look at a blog all day. Those of you obsessed with putting her down so much the last few days must not have anything better to do at your hum-drum, low-profile jobs. Get over it, get back to work and get a life.

We're being honest.. the above poster is covering for Alice. If the above poster is such a proud suppoter of Alice... wonder if they're proud enough to put their name on the next post? My guess is no.

I'll admit it.... I'm the one who has been supporting Alice with these posts. But she deserves it.

A.S.

p.s. -- vote Huckabee for prez and always remember that running is great exercise !

So that poster answers a question with a question? See, I knew they were ashamed to support Alice. Talk about fair-weather friends.

First of all, how do you know those are the same two posters? You don't. More importantly, if you really KNOW that Alice is all that bad, YOU prove it. Put your name on here right now. Will we see it?

"My guess is no."

People defending Alice won't let their post their names... so they are ashamed to be on her side. They are arguing against themselves. Game over.

The reason no one posts their real name here is not because they're embarrassed to support Alice-- it's because they're embarrassed to be wasting time on such a childish blog.

Names not being posted? Probably because its just two people going back and forth.
I had the pleasure of working with Alice for a short time(ha). But I will say, that I always thought very highly of her and still do to this day. I am proud of her and the gov made a great choice!!!

Now bash me,

Truth is, Alice made a good choice. She's not true anchor material and like Joe Quin,, some marginal anchors have a real talent when it comes to politics.

I know all of you who say Alice is great and should be cannonized, but let's face it: you can't be a really sweetsy person and work in politics. You have to screw people over daily, make hard choices, give up what is required and sell your grandmother if it means getting ahead. It's not a business for nice people.

If she's a bitch who knows how to be nice, and is nice on occasion, she'll do well and both will have made the right choice.

So be proud and give her the rah-rah all you want. Quit trying to BS us.

I know Alice... have known her for a while... and she's a very cold person who would sell her grandmother and screw over her friends to get what she needs. Guess she's now in the right business for it.

But, seriously, a presidential campaign will expose parts of her personal life that aren't pretty.

Lisa Beckham does provide humor in the morning... talking on the phone to the radio, then getting caught with the phone when she goes on TV... then struggling with that kid all morning... what a struggle just to get through the day. How about some childcare so she can work? Does the kid HAVE to be in her lap?
