Contessa Brewer’s John Ziegler Interview Ends in “Cut The Mic, Please”

brewer_6-10.bmpMSNBC had “Media Malpractice” filmmaker John Ziegler on last hour, and it went pretty much as expected. Ziegler was interviewed by Contessa Brewer about the David Letterman Gov. Sarah Palin jokes, and her response on Ziegler’s radio show yesterday.

Here’s how it started: “Thanks for having me, always interesting to go out with the people with Barack Obama‘s official network,” said Ziegler.

Later, Ziegler said Palin showed “far more class than clearly most people on this network have,” and Brewer had enough.

“I’m here to give you an opportunity, I consider myself a common sense thinker, I haven’t attacked you, and for you to come on and use those sort of insults insults me,” she said, before cutting the mic.
