2021 August 1:  Ed Wallace Slanders Traumatic Brain Injury Victim Darrell Ankarlo

When conservative radio host Darrell Ankarlo left Dallas (KLIF) in 2006 for Phoenix (KTAR), Ed Wallace tossed various insults at Darrell Ankarlo on his Saturday show after Ankarlo’s departure from the Dallas market.  This Ed Wallace is a “classy" guy.

It is now 2021 and Wallace again makes snarky comments.  Never mind that a 2012 car accident resulted in Darrell Ankarlo suffering a traumatic brain injury, which forced Ankarlo to leave his radio career.  A decade later, this Ed Wallace remains a “classy" guy.

During the July 31, 2021 Wheels with Ed Wallace broadcast, Wallace states that ♫ Darrell Ankarlo does not know the preamble to the Constitution of the United States.  This false claim is refuted by that fact that Ankarlo was a minor through to the year 1977 and there were ubiquitous Schoolhouse Rock! television shorts broadcasted throughout the 1970s (1973 forward).  One of the most famous of these is the 1975 short titled The Preamble, which taught the contents of the preamble of the Constitution of the United States.  So, not only did Ankarlo grow up learning the preamble, the repetition would have allowed him to sing it from memory in 2006.

Schoolhouse Rock! Preamble

Of course, it is likely that Ankarlo would prefer to defend himself from Wallace’s slander, but Ankarlo has stepped away from the public forum due to a traumatic brain injury.  In his stead, let Schoolhouse Rock! set the record straight:

A socialist shill.
Only a socialist shill.
Ed Wallace telling lies on the radio still.
But he might report the truth someday.
Oh we hope and pray that he will.
But today he is still
Just a shill.
