Tammy Bruce / Zeb Bell & The Village Idiot

Those of us who are progressive bloggers here know of the partnered efforts The Mountain Goat Report and The Political Game are keeping to monitor the hate spewing of ‘local’ broadcaster, Zeb Bell, spotlighting his bigoted rantings.  MG now is producing a daily rundown of the content and guest spots of Bell’s show.
