Zuma Dogg on Howard Stern: The Y2K debut of Zuma Dogg. People still like watching this. Zuma Dogg vs City Hall: The heat! Video playlist that the new (Nov. 2019) script is based upon.
REALATED: ZD credited, in June 2019 “CityWatch LA,” for predicting and warning L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Clowncil of the homeless crisis that would be hitting L.A. streets, due to what they were doing. It’s now here and I was (sadly) correct.

After police tried to stop Zuma Dogg from taping the council deliberations, he railed against the big shots for months, slamming Garcetti as “Garshady” on his show and on his whistleblower blog. ‘Whatever happened to free speech in this country?,’ Zuma Dogg asked. He prevailed against Garcetti’s rules, and now brings his cameracorder to every council meeting, as can any member of the public thanks to him.” – LA Weekly.
* “Zuma Dogg, not only one of the most recognizable figures at City Hall, cordially greeted by passersby, including police and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, he also has the ear of high-level insiders, who feed him information in the hope that he’ll expose, and possibly stop, one questionable government project or another.” – LA Weekly
