Episode 1.

The Bob Filner scandal was a big deal in the news recently, but Episode 1 of Local Media Monitor on KNSJ-FM focuses on a disgraced ex-mayor of San Diego you might have never heard about. Roger Hedgecock, who was mayor for a short time in the 1980s before a campaign finance scandal forced him from office and into felony court proceedings, is now a right wing talk show host. This episode exposes Hedgecock`s -extremist race-baiting nonsense focused on President Obama, -opinions about who we "allow to procreate," -blaming of the school massacre in Newtown, CT on "political correctness," -factually-challenged assertions about North Korea`s capabilities of nuking California and secret US troop movements in Iran. -calls for the brutal murder of the president of Afghanistan. Included is an interview with Dr. Gerald Crabtree of Stanford University on Hedgecock`s widely inaccurate interpretation of one of Crabtree`s scientific publications.
