VIDEO: John Ziegler on MSNBC

This guy is excruciatingly smug.

Evening radio talk show host John Ziegler, creator of the documentary “Blocking the Path to 9/11″ has been talking up his new film “Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted”. The film purports to show how the media focused positive attention on Obama’s campaign and negative attention on Palin’s. Ziegler is convinced that Obama won the election based on the positive coverage he received alone.

So, it’s a movie about media bias, which is itself heavily biased. I think that proves his point succinctly. The problem is, yes, he’s right — there is, or can be, a distinct bias in the mainstream media, but that’s why we have so much of it: the bias goes both ways on any subject.

In an MSNBC interview today, Contessa Brewer ferociously batted cat toys around via satellite with radio host John Ziegler, whose on-camera presence is strongly reminiscent of SNL-era Norm MacDonald. Ziegler had interviewed Gov. Sarah Palin in response to a recent Late Show with David Letterman Top Ten List that mocked her typical "slutty flight attendant" attire. (Palin called Letterman "pathetic"; you can listen to the Ziegler/Palin radio chat here.) Right off the bat, Ziegler thanked Brewer for having him on "Barack Obama's Official Network." Zing! "Do you even want to do the interview?" Brewer wondered. Oh, he sure did. Watch the sparks fly in this very special episode of Adventures in Talking Over Each Other. Cut the mic, please! Someone. Anyone.
