I interviewed film maker John Ziegler for about ten minutes yesterday evening, after the Anchorage showing of his new film, Media Malpractice. Here are three segments, edited by the Alaska Report's Dennis Zaki. He comments here abut local journalist Brendan Joel Kelley, Daily Beast journalist Max Blumenthal, and film maker Michael Moore:
Kelley was on Eddie Burke's KBYR talk program this afternoon, between 3:08 and 4:00. Kelley spent some of the time disparaging Alaska's liberal and progressive bloggers. He provided no specific information about why he feels as he does.
Although my interview with Ziegler went reasonably well, Kelley was thrown out of the theater, after he and Ziegler had a somewhat confrontative conversation. Here's the YouTube Kelley had made of his unpleasant experience:
Kelley writes about the experience in a story for the Anchorage Press.
I'd like to thank KBYR for helping to set up my interview. Hopefully, Dennis Zaki will have the interviews I conducted after the movie with filmgoers ready soon.
One notable thing about John Ziegler was that he wasn't charitable toward anyone in the press, left, center or right; he was dismissive of every politician who came up, save one - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
