the right’s answer to Michael Moore

John Ziegler, of, made waves after a heated interview with Contessa Brewer on MSNBC.

The interview never really manages to get underway- Ziegler hits the ground swinging and never seems to move past his rage over David Letterman’s “slutty flight attendant” comments and allegations that A-Rod knocked up Bristol Palin. Hey- at least Letterman didn’t say stewardess. That would have been offensive!

Ziegler is the creator of Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected, a film that cost him $200,000 to produce. In the film, Ziegler posits that the media bias for Obama and against rockstar of the right wing Sarah Palin unfairly won the election for the young Senator from Illinois.

On his site, Ziegler has this to say about his mission:


“I think I ought to be the Right’s Michael Moore, with far more facts and far less fat. I know I can fill that role, and I know I can help the movement.”

If he really wishes to be heard, though, Ziegler might want to learn how to listen. His contentious bit with Contessa Brewer ends with Brewer admonishing crew to “cut his mike!” And I thought that was Bill O’Reilly’s line…
