Ziegler Handcuffed at USC For Asking Questions at Couric Award Ceremony



Friday, at a USC ceremony where Katie Couric received the "Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Journalism" for her hit job on Sarah Palin, conservative documentarian John Jiegler was handcuffed and denied permission to ask questions of passersby.

Ziegler said it best:
This is the country we're now living in... I'm being now handcuffed for standing on a sidewalk, asking questions outside of an award ceremony on Journalism excellence. You can't get more irony than this... This is what it's come to America. At the "Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalsim," I'm standing outside, asking questions about why we're not allowed to cover the event, causing no problems whatsoever, and I've now been handcuffed, roughed up and prevented from getting to my own property... This is what journalism has become. This says it all, right here...
Of course, this type of disturbingly ironic suppression of voice is commonplace in today's America. In fact, it's a major premise of Ziegler's most recent documentary, Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted. Pick up your copy today.
