Advertisers Cool on Palin's Documentary

Sarah Palin’s Fox News special Real American Stories was a dud, drawing only two million viewers. Could her upcoming Discovery series about Alaska be similarly disappointing? The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur talks to a Discovery source who was at last week’s presentation to ad buyers of Sarah Palin’s Alaska. "[T]he whole thing [was] comical,” the source says. "When the promo was over, people (employees and buyers) were rolling their eyes, snickering, and even laughing. People were laughing and it's not even a comedy. No one took it seriously." Says the source, "Bottom line, everyone thought it was a new all-time low for Discovery. My guess is the show is going to tank big time."
