Fly on the Wall 

Fly in the Foxhouse

Last week, Fly on the Wall warned Memphians that violent, sex-crazed lesbians were coming to get their daughters. Citing reports by local news channel WPTY, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, and Beverly Cobb of the Shelby County Gang Division, we noted that the ever-expanding culture of deranged lady-loving ladies is wreaking havoc in the heartland by forcing young girls to "do all sexual acts." And then we revealed that, in spite of all the hysteria, there was no actual data supporting these claims.

Well, we made a mistake. To the Fly Team's deep, personal regret, we misidentified WPTY as a Fox affiliate, when it's actually an ABC station. We somewhat regret that our misidentification seemed to upset people more than exaggerated reports of wild lesbian gangs ravaging the countryside.

Wrath of Zahn?

Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that on April 4th, CNN's Paula Zahn, in a roundtable discussion on segregation, introduced Political Cesspool radio host James Edwards as simply a "Memphis radio host."

Edwards, whose program gives voice to the opinions of neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers, and "Klan associates," told Zahn it was "natural and healthy" that whites are attracted to "the same values and traditions and heroes." The CNN host identified Edwards as a "white separatist" after the commercial break.


Last week, Fly on the Wall failed to credit WREG's bulldog reporter Andy Wise for some extraordinary work. Wise revealed that there are two strips of power-line properties just off Walnut Bend — and only one is kept mowed and ivy-free. "One looks like a golf course," Wise noted of the strip maintained by MLGW. The strip maintained by TVA "looks like a rat's nest." Obviously, lesbian gang rapes are on the decline. Or nobody from the CBS affiliate has driven through the inner city where weeds are as high as the hopheads who wallow in them.
