Here he is, outside of NBC HQ, at the David Letterman protest that was almost as poorly attended as John's film has been (Who is the woman he is hugging at the beginning? Is she from Conservatives 4 Palin?):
And here he is on Vancouver, BC talk radio, being his ever-charming self. I really think Sarah should hire John to take Bill McAllister's place. He's so utterly diplomatic, no matter what kind of situation he finds himself in:
Here's an excerpt from an article about Ziegler's appearance and "press conference:"
John Ziegler, a Los Angeles radio host, the producer of the documentary film "Media Malpractice" - and the spokesman for www.firedavidletterman.com , held a press conference in the street, complete with permitted sound equipment. He started by stating what David Letterman had done had gone far beyond anyone else, that he had clear liberal bias - and that he had a "peculiar interest" in Sarah Palin. One could take that to mean that he considered Letterman sexually obsessed with the Alaska Governor.
"It is part of a liberal attempt to destroy Governor Palin for the past eleven months," Ziegler added. Ziegler further said, "I got a call from CBS. Why are you holding a protest? Why don't you just go away?" He went on to say that despite the weak second apology, there is no justice and no accountability, that Letterman should be suspended from his show as a minimum punishment.
"Why doesn't he donate last week's income to a charity chosen by Sarah Palin?" - or words very close to that - were Ziegler's next remark. Ziegler had tried to contact Letterman and got no direct response. He was also had been scheduled to be on the CBS television morning show and was "bumped" (canceled) from that.
When asked why the protest took a week to happen, Ziegler asked, "Why did David Letterman take a week to apologize?" When Air America, in more of an accusation that a question, remarked that Sarah Palin went on Saturday Night Live in 2008 a week after they had aired a skit which said that Tod Palin had slept with his daughter, Ziegler pointed out that skit was set in a New York Times staff meeting where the paper's staff was considering topics to write, so it was essentially a satire on what the Times might publish to discredit her, not Saturday Night Live saying this directly of Gov. Palin.
Ziegler was asked by other media if he had much support for his protest (he had flown to New York at his own expense from Los Angeles), he mentioned that his website had many sign up for his newsletter and he had received many positive emails.
And here's a description of the crowd size at the NYC event:
Did you hear about the “Fire David Letterman” rally in New York City on June 16th? What, you didn’t? What are you, deaf and blind? I mean, there was a huge crowd there – hundreds! Oops, make that fifty. No, make that fifteen.
Meanwhile, contributions to the SLAPP suit against Alaska citizen activists and bloggers fund seem to be slowing down to a trickle. On day five of the seven-day drive, they are 20% of the way toward their goal. Where's Exxon when you need them, Sarah?
