Scandal sheet bottom feeder
18 April 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I kind of identified a bit with this 77 Sunset Strip story. Until recently we had a political blogger in my area who ran the exact same kind of racket that bottom feeding columnist Fredd Wayne does. This man printed all kinds of blind items in a scandal sheet and various officeholders and aspirants bought advertising in his on line newsletter to avoid him naming their names. That was going on back in the 50s too as this episode is an obvious reference to Confidential magazine and what they did with show business people.

Newly arrived Richard Long formerly of Bourbon Street Beat has the case as he doesn't believe that Jock Mahoney was the one who did in Wayne. It looks pretty open and shut to LAPD homicide in the person of Byron Keith. But as usual Bailey&Spencer can always be assured that the LAPD will let them run with it

Not like there are a shortage of suspects, but the one who actually does the deed is a bigger bottom feeder than Wayne if possible.
