SEN’s Co-Founder Gregory Hilbert told Huffington bloggers Mary Ellen Harte PhD and John Harte PhD of cooltheearth, “The Discovery Palin Alaska petition-condemnation-boycott campaigns by Defenders of Wildlife, Credo, Change.org, Center for Biodiversity, Care2 Petitioners, Facebook groups and SEN have already obtained over 550,000 signatures. Every week brings another organization or campaign, more blogs, and more televised ridicule of Palin. By the time Alaska airs, if it does, the number engaged by signature alone would easily exceed one million. And if Palin Alaska airs, there will then be boycott fury!
“Murdoch, News Corp and Fox News? I think we have a fair chance of getting results faster with a simple petition than we have with Discovery Communications. Murdoch and News Corp already put their names on the line for Global Warming. Discovery’s CEO put his on the line for Palin. We know Discovery’s advertisers are snickering about it. Let’s hope Discovery’s shareholders feel the heat from Credo, and let Discovery’s CEO know they don’t think this thing is shaping up to be funny.”
