Blagojevich on FOX's Hannity show Wednesday

below release from Blagojevich publicists....

PRNewsChannel) / Chicago, Ill. and New York, N.Y. / Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has done interviews with Diane Sawyer, Meredith Vieira, Barbara Walters and even David Letterman. But one of the more lively exchanges may come Wednesday evening when Gov. Blagojevich takes questions from conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, Blagojevich's publicist Glenn Selig of the publicity/PR firm The Publicity Agency (http://www.thepublicityagency.com) said today.

Gov. Blagojevich is in the midst of an aggressive media campaign to assert his innocence in light of allegations that he tried to sell the senate seat vacated by Barack Obama after he was elected president.

Blagojevich was removed from office less than two weeks ago by the Illinois Senate after being denied the chance to call witnesses and present evidence that he did nothing wrong.

"Gov. Blagojevich calls himself the 'anti Nixon' because he wants Americans to hear all the supposed incriminating audio tapes played so they can hear what was said in full context," says Selig. "The governor is not afraid to take tough questions from even his harshest critics and an interview with Hannity proves it."

Hannity has publicly criticized the former governor for what he said in conversations that were recorded by FBI wiretaps but he has also been critical of the government and what appears to be a smear campaign based on lack of evidence.

The live interview is scheduled for Wednesday at 9 p.m. on FOX Newschannel. The governor will be in New York.

Since this is the week of Valentine's Day, shouldn't The Publicity Agency be getting gigs for their other notorius clients (like Drew Peterson) too?

Why is Pat Quinn going to New York? I thought only the former governor would be interviewed.

TALKING ABOUT BIRDS OF A FEATHER!
THESE GUYS HAVE ALOT TO TALK ABOUT!
THESE GUYS COULD HAVE SOLD SNAKE OIL ON THE
SNAKE OIL CIRCUIT!
LOOKING FOR FRIENDS IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES!
I NEED A NEW LAWYER, I NEED MONEY, I NEED A HUG!

Phil--you are HURTING Pres. Obama's chances for re-election with the Blago bashing. Once he is acquitted--not because he is necessarily innocent but because of the denial of due process coming out of a (wait for it) REPUGNICAN 'Just us' department---this will HURT Obama if his supporters are seen as piling on.
It doesn't MATTER if he's guilty--it's the principle. And you should know this!
