Although a copy of this letter was delivered to Mr. Zaslav on May 5, 2010, its message is still relevant due to the continued attacks by Defenders of Wildlife on "Sarah Palin's Alaska". Please sign the petition and stand in solidarity with us in our support of Governor Palin and Discovery/TLC and their excellent Alaska travelogue.


David M. Zaslav, President andCEO, Discovery Communications, Inc., One Discovery Place,Silver Spring, Maryland 20910

Dear Mr. Zaslav:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

As President and CEO of Discovery Communications, Inc., your good taste and sound judgment were evident in your acquisition of the contract for Governor Sarah Palin’s documentary series about her home state of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Alaska. Who better to tell the story of Alaska than her most famous daughter? Sarah Palin’s captivating personality will definitely be an asset to your network as you partner with Governor Palin to showcase the majestic beauty of Alaska’s natural wonders.

I join millions of others in my anticipation of this unique and exciting series about Alaska, its history, and its natural wonders. Governor Palin’s presence alone should ensure outstanding viewer ratings.. Oprah Winfrey and FOX News can attest to that. Governor Palin’s initial appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show gave that show its highest ratings in two years. Her debut as a FOX News analyst drew more viewers than all the other cable news programs during that hour combined. Likewise, the first installment of Real American Stories drew more viewers than all her competitors combined. To put it simply, Sarah Palin is “ratings gold”.

In this petition, I also want to express my concern about the mischaracterization of Governor Palin’s management of Alaska’s wildlife by extremist environmental groups.

In a 2009 letter to Governor Palin, the U. S. Sportsmen’s Association succinctly described the principles of predator management used by Governor Palin during her term in office:

“After years of research, it is recognized by practically all state and federal wildlife officials that predator management is a prerequisite for guaranteeing stable populations of prey species. Given that many Alaska residents rely on moose, caribou, and other wildlife species for food, it becomes imperative that those species not be decimated through lack of predator management. The Alaska wolf management program accomplishes this. It does so through a rigorously regulated, scientifically based system targeting only those predators in areas where wildlife populations are not able to reach adequate levels of sustainability in the program’s absence.”

That letter can be found at

In her New York Times op-ed entitled “Bearing Up,” Governor Palin explained how placing polar bears on the endangered species list was not good science and described the measures that her administration was using to protect wildlife.

That op-ed can be found at

Although politically-motivated groups are trying to smear Governor Palin concerning her stewardship of Alaska’s wildlife, the facts are contrary to their assertions.

In conclusion, I stand with USSA and likeminded groups in my support of Governor Sarah Palin and in opposition to the political attacks that have been made against her. Governor Palin has been a role model for ethical and responsible conduct throughout her political career. She has expressed and demonstrated her love of Alaska and the U. S. A. on many occasions. I look forward to what I believe will be an outstanding series about Alaska by its most noteworthy spokesperson.
