The Zero Hour with RJ Eskow

As much as I admire how creative progressives have gotten to get their voices heard, I wish there were more outlets for them than we currently have. Our buddy Rich Eskow would make a great talking head, But Rich displays exactly why progressives don't get asked: he pushes back against false, misleading Republican propaganda.
