Flashback Friday

Who could forget this classic moment at WLBT back in 2007?



WLBT Reporter Cheryl Lasseter takes some heat from Janice Singleton but Lasseter has the last laugh two years later:

"JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Silence from Janice Singleton as she left Federal Court Friday with a sentence of 52 months in prison and a restitution of more than $243,000.

The former corrections officer swindled $360,000 from 50 inmates by stealing their personal information and filing bogus tax returns.

Her dignified manner at sentencing is a turnaround from her attitude in February 2007, when Singleton, her sister, and her mother converged on a WLBT News crew, shouting expletives.

Singleton forced a camera out of our reporter's hand. The dust-up went on for about ten minutes.

A few weeks prior, the U.S. Secret Service had raided her business and seized records. Our news crew had visited to ask while she was still operating despite being charged with identity theft and fraud."

That sounds like a record running backwards.

CLASSIC

Racism in the hood? Who knew? said...

They soon learned to use black reporters in certain areas.

The Po Po should have been called the minute those turds started crossing the street.

"You don't scare me." Maybe, but you're scared all right.

You must expect the family allies to show up and make things worse. If the perp were by herself she wouldn't feel so emboldened and the matter might have been much quieter. Nothing unusual.

What you call racism I call resentment.

Wouldn’t have mattered if Maggie Wade would have been there. They knew the guilt of their family member and they acted accordingly.

I had not seen that. Big respect for the journalist for not backing down.

How did Lasseter receive the last laugh? She doesn’t strike me as the type of person who wants nor needs the last laugh.

You are posting a lot more race baiting articles lately than usual Kingfish. Are you trying to incite something? Isn't there some suburban white child molester in Rankin County you can focus on? Maybe put the spotlight on a white trailer park meth head in Pearl for a change? Why do it always have to be someone black from Jackson?

Sorry, I don't get it JJ...based on what I've seen in Portland, Seattle, St Louis, Minneapolis, Kenosha, Madison WI, and a few videos concerning Jackson since 2007...this compared to now is a "Relatively Calm, understanding, respectful, response" to an interview request. There are no Guns being pointed or fired, no knives brandished, no hair pulled out, no beatdown to a coma, No Social Media Live Streaming by 27 individuals, the TV station wasn't protested or burned that night....No, this was in more civilized times...

That unintelligent barrage of shouting made my ears hurt.

Hmmmmm What is the difference between the press accosting someone (criminal or not) at their own home and BLM and Antifa “protesting” outside private residences

WLBT does know how to get great video.

Cheryl Lasseter is great !
I love her to death !

But . . . Bert Case was WLBT's best in these situations.
Fighting dogs, having a Mississippi Governor threaten to "kick his ass" and so forth.

Well, let's see. WLBT is a leftist propaganda outfit that accosts with microphones while BLM/Antifa are a leftist outfit that accosts with Molotav Cocktails, bricks, bike locks, etc. I'm sure you support both.

440. WLBT did not accost anybody. Nice try at attempting to rewrite the story (you don't work for the media by any chance, do you)

LBT was on public property across the street from these crazy folks,, asking to interview the lady. They didn't approach any of these 'family members'. The accosting happened when the family came out of the yard, across the street, pushing and shoving while shooting, screaming, cussing and threatening.

You need to check your dictionary before commenting unless you really want to be shown to be a fool. Of course, if Soros is paying you by the word to try to divert attention, at least try to do a better job for George next time

Gosh, I love Jackson. Some people here are so...interesting.

Kudos to the non-clinically obese woman in pink for seemingly keeping her shit together.

They Seem Nice said...

They got their 15-seconds of fame on the evening news. Classy - not.

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.

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.
