Ziegler Vs. Lauer: Palin Documentarian Confronts "Today" Host (VIDEO)

John Ziegler, Sarah Palin documentarian, went on the "Today Show" Monday to discuss his upcoming film "Media Malpractice."

Ziegler suggested that Lauer knew Sarah Palin wasn't a "moron" because he had been to her house, but that he wouldn't reveal that information because he was in cahoots with the rest of the media. "Come clean!" he urged.

"You making it personal with me is not going to work in this particular situation," Lauer responded.

The trailer for Ziegler's film is out, and in it Palin suggests the press was out to get her from the start: "We're going to seek and we're going to destroy this candidacy of Sarah Palin's because of what it is that she represents."

"Obviously something big took place in the media," Palin said. It is "very frightening, I think, what the media was able to get away with, this go around."

"This is for the sake of our democracy that there is fairness in this other branch of government, if you will, called the media," she said. "It is foreign to me the way some in the mainstream media are thinking."
