    Wonder if Bill Murrah was involved with that? He hit 4&G in the late seventies in some sort of organizer/agitator role.

    YMBAKC if you have 2 new independent print pubs in 2015. What is the lowdown on this? Can/will both survive or is this a fight to the death? Is it true there is a reality show in the works about this skirmish?

    FWIW, thanks to J.J. Stambaugh and the team at Hard Knox Independent, local political satire has a home again.

    The successor to "Snarls," "Toxic Fumes," "Funny, Ha-Ha," and "Snark Bites" is "The Mocksville Reporter." You can read the inaugural column here: http://www.hardknoxindie.com/the-mocksville-reporter/

    The latest Mocksville Reporter from the Hard Knox Independent:

    After Reelection, Haslam Mulls Operation to Reinsert Spine

    With a tidal wave reelection under his belt, Gov. Haslam is looking to possibly assert himself in his second term. Having spent much of his first term spinelessly caving to the extreme right wing of the Republican Superdupermajority in the Tennessee General Assembly, Haslam is considering having his backbone reinserted.

    Such an action would likely set him up for titanic clashes with Republican right-wingers, who are quite pleased with the compassion-ectomies they had done upon finally seizing control of both chambers of the state legislature in 2008.

    During Haslam’s first term, he used his spine primarily as a flagpole, running issue flags up it to see which way the political winds were blowing. But Haslam last week acknowledged that he was considering the spinal procedure.

    “To pursue my Insure Tennessee plan to expand health insurance availability to poor Tennesseans, I may need a spine to overcome the obstinate and unconscionable opposition of my fellow Republicans, who, I want to point out, are wonderful folks despite their not wanting poor people to have insurance,” he said.

    If Haslam moves forward with the spine re-implantation, the Knoxville native will depend on a surprising source to assist with the delicate procedure...

    From the Mocksville Reporter:

    Knoxville Reported to Have “No-Faux” Zones

    From Mocks New. KNOXVILLE, TN.

    This is a Mocks News Special Report. In response to Fox News’ dubious assertions of officially sanctioned Islamic “no-go” enclaves existing in hundreds of European communities – including entire cities, such as Birmingham, England – areas of Knoxville have set up “no-Faux” zones. In these sectors, Fox News’ implausible reporting won’t fly.

    The areas also are known as “No distortion” districts, “No misrepresentation” precincts and “No bull Shiite/Sunni” zones. They appeared following the broadcast of Fox Terrorism Expert Steve Emerson’s incredible claims of European no-go zones, where non-Muslims don’t travel, after Islamic extremists assassinated 12 staff members of satire magazine “Charlie Hebdo” in Paris, France.

    His unsubstantiated report prompted European news media to ridicule Emerson and Fox News, compelled Paris’ mayor to sue Fox News, and moved conservative icon Glen Beck to a weepy defense of pundits’ right to be wrong. Locally, Emerson’s remarks also motivated the establishment of the “no-Faux” zones.

    Avon Guard, resident of Knoxville’s Fourth and Goal neighborhood, says she and her neighbors have established one such no-Faux zone.

    “As soon as that report aired, I realized what was happening,” Guard recalled. “Here was a self-proclaimed ‘news’ organization using the murderous actions of extremists to promote its own goal of division, partisanship and extremism in the United States. I knew I had to do something extreme in response.”

    That “something extreme,” it turned out, was persuading her next-door neighbors to ban Fox News from their homes to, in Guard’s words, “staunch the flow of Faux News’ poison.”

    Guard admitted that, because she and her friends never watched Fox News anyway, agreeing to the extreme ban was “relatively easy.” She still believes, however, establishing the ban is significant.

    "We believe this extreme ban makes a bold statement against Faux News' extremism - in our minds it does, anyway," she said.

    This no-Faux zone now has almost certainly expanded to encompass all of Fourth and Goal.
