Caroline Lyders is an anchor WJLA, Washington DC. She connived and schemed her way into these offices. Journalism is about integrity and truth, this woman is a deceptive careerist looking for fame and will stop at nothing to get it.
In 2007, she took part in an 'elaborate' publicity scheme, playing the fake girlfriend of AI winner Taylor Hicks. Due to her similar look (short hair) she 'pretended' to be the woman he was caught on the beach in Hawaii.
Lyders agreed to take part in this scheme to further her career. Hicks' was desperate to clear his name as the woman on the beach with him was a prostitute and they were taking part in 'illegal activities.'
Lyders blatantly lied to various media outlets, co-workers, friends, some family, and still to this day, makes up elaborate stories about her so-called 'relationship' with him. She begs people to not 'believe it.'
They went to all ends to 'cover this up' to make this 'business friendship' look like a romance. Making planned 'appearances', but people soon caught on as rumors had been swirling from day one. The women looked similar but 'not quite.' Evidence was presented that the woman on the beach with Hicks was also seen while Lyders was on air. More evidence was presented when a forensics specialist analyzed the photos and confirmed that she was not the woman on the beach with Hicks, and it was bait and switch.
Lyders continues to deny it hoping people will 'never' believe it and dismiss it as absurd. Her lies are endless and sickening.
Even better news is I have irrefutable proof of her lies in form of a recorded phone conversation left on someone's voicemail when she did not realize her cell phone had dialed a number while in her purse/jacket etc.
This woman is manipulative, conniving and should not be trusted nor hired by any reputable news company. She is an embarrassment and a mockery to journalism profession.
