Where's Lee When You Need Him?

If you've recently passed within a few blocks of the Discovery headquarters, you've no doubt been deluged with advertisements protesting TLC's upcoming series Sarah Palin's Alaska. These ads, sponsored by Defenders of Wildlife and featuring photos of sad/dead/cute wolves and other animals, are plastered all over the Metro station and bus shelters. There's even a giant banner hanging at the entrance to the station.


Banner outside Silver Spring Metro station.

What could possibly possess Discovery to broadcast a show featuring Sarah Palin (and pay her as much as $1.5M+ per episode to star in it)? Well, this is no longer your father's Discovery, it's now a fully-corporate, publicly-traded Discovery. Their current CEO came over from NBC, a network that green-lighted The Jay Leno Show, so make of that what you will.


Who doesn't love baby animals? Sarah Palin.

This is clearly the best funded anti-Discovery effort since the protest organized by the enigmatic man-in-gray "Lee" back in 2008. In retrospect, perhaps we misjudged Lee. His claims against Discovery seemed far-fetched at the time, but maybe Discovery is actually evil and Lee was simply a misunderstood profit. Let's just pray that this protest also ends in someone making it rain on The Promenade.

kind of funny that no one has commented on this! i was sure there would be a flurry of opinions. i think tlc should be embarrassed.

Discovery can do whatever it wants. It and Doug Duncan created DTSS, which we all need.
