Urge Discovery to Drop Sarah Palin's New Show



Discovery Communications -- the parent company of The Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC and others, and known for their wildlife-focused programs -- is planning to produce an 8-part TV show on Sarah Palin's Alaska.

Sarah Palin's Alaska is a "reality TV" show that aims to showcase the "powerful beauty of Alaska," according to Discovery's TLC website.

But the real Sarah Palin is no friend of Alaska's natural heritage. While in office, the former governor fought against increased protections for endangered whales and America's dwindling populations of polar bears in favor of oil and gas development, supported dangerous drilling for oil in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, and escalated Alaska's brutal aerial wolf-killing program.

Yet according to reports, Palin will earn about $1 million per episode from the nature-focused series.

Act now: Send a powerful message to Discovery Communications expressing your disappointment at their action and urging them to drop Sarah Palin's new show from their programming schedule.

It's important that the truth about Sarah Palin's record not be swept under the rug by her celebrity. Palin's disrespect for the environment and disregard for science and has done real damage to Alaska's wildlife and endangered Alaska's natural heritage.

Send a message to Discovery Communications and let them know that Sarah Palin doesn't deserve to represent the "powerful beauty of Alaska" in front of millions of people.
