Discovery Communications has just re-defined obscenity on television: Sarah Palin as a spokesperson for Alaska’s wildlife.
As governor of Alaska, Palin turned the call of the wild into a cry for help. Now Discovery is giving her a chance to re-write history and rake in millions of dollars as host of Sarah Palin’s Alaska…even as wolves, polar bears and other Alaska wildlife continue to pay a heavy price for her anti-wildlife policies.
More than 177,000 concerned people like you have already called on Discovery Communications to drop Palin’s misleading new show. Our efforts have been featured on The Huffington Post and other media outlets across the country.
So far Discovery Communications -- the same company that airs Animal Planet -- remains committed to airing Palin’s new show. But that could change.
Now we’re taking our message to the streets, letting the management, employees, advertisers -- and even the shareholders -- of Discovery Communications know that we mean business with a powerful new ad campaign right outside their front door.
You and I know that the real Sarah Palin’s Alaska isn’t a nature documentary – it’s a horror show.
Sarah Palin oversaw a campaign of cruel and unscientific aerial wolf killing that exterminated hundreds of wolves. She’s argued for destructive drilling in vital polar bear habitat – drilling that could cause threatened polar bear mothers to abandon their cubs – and against decisive action to address climate change that could doom millions of species to extinction.

P.S. Unless we turn up the volume right now, Palin’s show will air – giving the world’s most notorious proponent of cruel, unfounded and unscientific aerial wolf and bear killing a gigantic megaphone to re-write her bloody record of mismanaging some of the world’s most important wildlife.
