    Default New Anti-Sarah Palin Signs go up for Discovery Shareholders' Meeting

    Thanks to Sarah Palin, it’s “Oh Crap, What Did We Do?” Eve at The Discovery Channel

    What were they thinking? Good question. Discovery Communications obviously missed that whole “Sarah Palin is toxic to everything she touches” memo that went out. The creation of Sarah Palin’s new wildlife show on The Discovery Channel was like watching a baby about to suck on a lemon, or your best friend walking down the aisle with a total bonehead. You just want to yell, “Nooooo! Don’t do it!” but its too late. Sometimes people must just learn their own lessons.

    It has been said over and over by her former opponents in Alaska, “Don’t underestimate Sarah Palin.” I would submit that you should also not underestimate those who do not underestimate Sarah Palin. The campaign against the Discovery Channel’s new program “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” which features one of the most infamous and controversial wildlife eradicating ex-half-governors on the planet, has been stunning.

    Apparently many people were paying attention, and found it a tad ironic that someone who was involved in suing the federal government over listing polar bears and Cook Inlet beluga whales as threatened species, encouraging the aerial hunting of wolves, gassing of wolf pups, snaring of bears, and shooting cubs should have a warm fuzzy “ain’t it beautiful” show on the Discovery Channel. After all, the last nice thing we heard from Palin about Alaska wildlife was in her book Going Rogue where she told us how great wildlife was… next to the mashed potatoes. Now she’s on some kind of metaphorical beach walk, stepping gingerly over the bodies of sea turtles in her Naughty Monkey pumps telling us to keep drillin’ because “every human endeavor involves risk.”

    An online petition has already garnered more than half a million signatures in opposition to the program. The Facebook pages and Twitter feeds of Animal Planet, Discovery, and TLC have been swamped with comments of outrage. Now, the latest protest has come in the shape of bus shelter ads, metro station ads, and even a giant banner. all surrounding the headquarters of Discovery, just in time for their shareholders meeting on May 5. Ouch. http://www.defenders.org/resources/p...ins_alaska.pdf



    Defenders of Wildlife has led the charge in an attempt to get Discovery to drop the show. Their action page contains links to the petition site, and links to share the story via a variety of social media.

    I think this is one of the best and most organized campaigns I've ever seen. Those ads are pretty shocking and if Discovery goes ahead now, they only have themselves to blame.

    Sorry I couldn't figure out how to post them. They're fantastic, though.

    Wow. That's one hell of a campaign. I'm completely impressed. Tell me if anyone sees posters around. I would love to see those up in every city in the country.

    Good campaign. But I'd be shocked if the Discovery Channel actually backed out of the deal with the Blunder from the Tundra.

    Haha, the Facebook pages for TLC, Animal Planet, and Discovery are covered with scathing comments! Discovery and its affiliated programs on all related networks are facing a massive boycott. WTG people!!

    Discovery Channel’s new program “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”
    Which will be immediately followed by "Ted Nugent's Michigan".

    They won't back out, but some people will stop watching. I know I have. I won't even watch the mindless TLC crap since they announced this, like "I Eat 200,000 Calories a Day". They can shove it.
