The Hottest Reporter Poll is back

It's back.  The Senate race has turned everyone off,  chains of  a sort for the readers who are forced to become political Marleys, wondering when the torment will end.  The Whole Foods jokes are stale, crime is well, crime.  Time to bring back the hottest reporter poll.  It disappeared for awhile because well, to be honest, the talent pool in this town dropped for a couple of years.  However, that has changed. Vote early, vote often.  All images were culled from  their employer's websites, Google images, and public Facebook pages. Oh, and be nice in the comments.  That includes Johnny Weir.

One piece of advice for the reporters.  If you are going to vote for yourself using different computers at work, try not to download a virus.  One reporter did a few years ago as she went from computer to computer. Managed to download a virus and infect the whole office in the process.

Keegan Fox is my choice, and she isn't on the list.

I guess I need to start watching WAPT, since I've never seen Jennifer Ortega before, but she is my clear favorite.

Courtney Cronin is drop dead gorgeous. She's also the best reporter out of this group so she'd win two polls.

I follo Jennifer Ortega on twitter and instagram and there may not be a more self-absorbed person

I liked Keegan Fox better at Ole Miss when she was Keisha Ferguson. That name is faker than some of these smiles.

Tough choice among 5 or 6.

To avoid a nasty run-off and possible litigation, during the final weekend of voting, how about adding a video interview question about something other than #MSSEN or global warming or Maps of Iraq/South Africa, so neither a "Miss Teen SC" clone nor former MILF beauty/ex-half-term-guv-whacko-type won't slip thru the cracks into the winner's circle?

Or better yet, KF, how about a "live" swimsuit photo competition? Because, you know, it's still summer and all, and you've got a nice camera and need more practice (don't we all?). You could be the official credentialed photographer, KF. I can get a couple of dump truck loads of sand spread in my backyard and host a round-robin beach volleyball tourney of two-woman "teams". This would would be ideal to judge "athleticism" (for Miss Congeniality or best bod or something) and "physical fitness (tan lines, closeups of feet, generous cut of swimsuit, beauty sans makeup-- the important stuff). The truly motivated contestants seeking to pad their resume could come early with work gloves and a rake to earn bonus points spreading sand (leveling the playing surface snd my back lawn). Super bonus points for those who bring their own wheelbarrow. This falls under the optional "good citizenship" portion of competition for helping improve their community.

In the spirit of fair play, patriotism, apple pies, news babery, Free Dumb and Murka, if u need some boots on the ground (or preferably, flip flops at poolside) for an election integrity team to be hands-on for, um, "integrity" purposes and volleyball refereeing, I feel I owe it to my, um, hometown, to volunteer my time and expertise to this worthy effort. No payment necessary as donations in kind of tiki drinks and sunscreen will be graciously accepted.

Besides, I have a ton of personal/ vacation days that I'd prefer to use now while my eyesight & everything else still "works", rather than to retire a few months early when total functionality is not as likely and I'll likely be fishing or painting landscapes like W.

KF, thanks for changing the subject this morning & improving the scenery. As far as middle-age male eye-candy fantasies go, I'm taking it to a new level.

I suppose this site only welcomes white, middle age males (and older). This is pretty insulting to your women readers and supporters. I agree we need to change the worn out subjects we've all been enmeshed in, but can't we change the conversation to something that's not sexist and we can all enjoy?

Kingfish said...

Stiletto and DWF both have posting privileges and can post a hottest male reporter or newsman poll any time they want to. Any of my good friends can if they ask me.

"This isn't a legit poll without Barbie."

The poll is "Hottest Reporter" not "Worst Dressed Reporter, "Most Self-Absorbed Reporter, or "Meteorologist Most Likely to be Seen on a Doppler Radar." If those polls are conducted, I am sure Barbie "No Autographs Please" Bassett would win the day.

Anonymous slumpbusters hijacking the poll with the Therese Apel votes.

Kingfish said...

10:09, at the True the Vote hearing in federal court, she was the only reporter who did not take a note. Heck, she did not even bring a notebook. Just sat at the back of the room and tried to stay awake. Well, I take that back. I was trying to stay awake. Meanwhile, Courtney, Emily, and the others wrote furiously.

A few years back when WLBT was featuring a high school cheerleading squad each Friday during high school football season, I heard Barbie say "no autographs, please" to a group of high school cheerleaders who weren't exactly clamoring for her signature.

Courtney Cronin said...

Dear "anonymous" who posted a comment about the broadness of my shoulders at 1:31 p.m.

You're sort of spot on with your response. For the past six years I've worked as a sports reporter covering football and basketball. This summer, I decided it was time for a change in my career, so I decided to put my efforts towards becoming a professional football player. I have four years of NCAA eligibility left and thought, "hey, if I work hard enough I can be a three- or four-star prospect too!"

With that said, I went through rigorous workouts and training sessions to work into a role at my natural position, which is a 3-tech defensive tackle. Therefore, that's what you must be referring to regarding the width of my shoulders.

So, if you'd like to line up across from me at the line of scrimmage sometime, I'd be happy to show you what I'm working with.

Dear Punked,

Courtney will take a moment to pancake your country ass before sacking your QB.

Then she'll tell all about your shortcomings in her memoirs. But maybe you'll get a signed print of a glamour shot without having to pay for it from one of your cows selling selfies at a TeaBagger "Fundraiser".

OK, this contest is OVER. You have everyone dolled up, looking their best. And Courtney Cronin blows the others out of the water wearing shoulder pads and eyeblack. Does that not automatically end the discussion?

Wanna clue how bogus this all is? Scroll down to previous poll on this subject. Courtney Ann Jackson WON. Was with Fox then. Stuffed the ballot box. Not a vote in this poll. NADA. ALL BOGUS.

Is there some subliminal intent in posting two or more pictures of the same 'girl'?

Brittany Bell is my choice. She's real in the literal sense of the word. She has a natural delivery and, above all, sticks to one hairdo and does not want to be a movie star.

I do notice you left David Hartman off the list. And, of course Bert deserves an honorable mention just for sticking with the game.

If you go by boobs, Ken South would win, hands down, and everybody knows Stuart Kellogg would take the prize if it were based on smile.

Wait; Since Eric Law is now, ah, givin' up the boo-tay, should he be among the contestants?

Each one of these reporters deserves to win. Some are better at reporting at times than the others and sometimes they are worse.

Anonymous said...

How many cheerleaders or people for that matter carry paper & pen to a ball game? Who asks for autographs these days now that anyone can snap a photo & share it? Exactly. None. Anyone has direct access to their local news people thanks to social media. How would I know this? Because I was Barbie's photog on all of those football games that she went to. And yep, I heard all of the conversations & questions she would be asked by people & questions she would ask them. Not once did she offer an autograph to anyone. In most cases, I was having to usher us immediately after to beat the football traffic. She has since moved well over a year ago so she's a non issue.

But it begs the question, where is Maggie or Stephanie on this poll since Marsha is on?

Anonymous said...

Both Maggie Wade and Stephanie Maxwell are topnotch in their field.
Their names were likely left off because whoever made up the list must not have been attracted to them for whatever reason.
I'm glad their names weren't on this list since I find the entire thing rather demeaning to these professionals.
These two ladies are often called on to be a spokesperson and emcee for many events in and out of Jackson. Their work speaks for itself.

Way to continue setting women back in the work force by sexualizing them instead of focusing on their actual intellect and skills. I just lost all respect for your blog. And to every man who commented encouraging this poll, you should be ashamed of yourselves. I bet most of you are married. Way to dishonor your wives by lusting after other women. How about for once rising above the typical behavior of men and be a real man.

Ms. Sophia is a cutie, but she needs a burger. Also, wherever she landed after her last stint in Jxn has left her with an unbearable affect to her voice. But yeah, she's a hottie.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
