Blago’s Agency Issues Release Touting ‘Today’ Show’s Get

The Today Show’s Meredith Vieira has the first interview with convicted liar and former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich tomorrow morning at 7 AM. No need for NBC to issue a release, Blago’s publicist Glenn Selig already did. There’s no reason for him not to, he owns PRNewschannel, the wire where it’s uploaded.

Blowing off Geraldo, strange appearances on The View and a million other shows, and a client list that includes the Bin Laden Hunter as well as wife disappearerer Drew Peterson. Maybe Selig’s special brand of PR works. Blago was found guilty on only one of 24 counts in the Federal case involving selling Barack Obama’s open Senate seat. The judge immediately declared a mistrial.

The release also tells the world that Blago will return to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Monday night for more hair tussling fun.
