Dear Discovery Channel Powers that be, including Mr. David Zaslav (President and CEO):
What on Earth were you thinking? Producing a show – an 8-part show! – called Sarah Palin’s Alaska, when Sarah herself led the state backwards in environmental stewardship? Let’s look at the background.
-Ms. Palin fought against protections for endangered whales.
-She worked counter to protecting the dwindling polar bear population.
-Instead, she pushed for oil and gas development, including dangerous drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge.
-Then-Governor Palin sponsored escalated aerial wolf-kills, including suggesting a $150 bounty for the foreleg of each wolf killed.
-All this was “accomplished” in only two and a half years as governor, before she quit to take to the talk show circuit.
This show (which will pay Ms. Palin a reported $1 million per episode) cannot be produced with integrity as long as the Sarah Palin name is on it. Any attention gained by her fame and notoriety will be negated by her actions while in office. Viewers may be able to see Russia from some of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, but the show’s content will not be credible.
Please, Mr. Zaslov, reconsider.
