John Ziegler’s NBC Media Tour: “You Guys Were in Love With Barack Obama”

ziegler_2-23.jpg“Media Malpractice” filmmaker John Ziegler had a contentious interview last month with David Shuster, and as the documentary is released today, Ziegler was back on the network in a variety of interviews.

The interviews began on the Today show this morning. Ziegler also appeared on Morning Joe and in an interview with Norah O’Donnell on MSNBC. (O’Donnell also reported the lead-in story on Today.) “You guys were in love with Barack Obama from very early on, and it showed in every single element of the news media coverage,” Ziegler told Matt Lauer.

Later in the interview, Lauer said, “I think that you making it personal with me is not going to work in this particular situation.”

At the beginning of his interview with O’Donnell, Ziegler thanked her for “great fodder for my next film, Media Malpractice 2,” and referred to the network he was appearing on as “an advocacy organization.”

“Are you and her (Palin) a little thin-skinned?” asked O’Donnell.
