As scooped in this blog last week, now former Gov. Blagojevich hits the shows for another media blitz, days after being removed from office last Thursday.

(PRNewsChannel) / Chicago, Ill. / On Tuesday, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich begins his day in New York with a TV appearance on NBC's 'Today' show and ends it as a guest on the 'Late Show with David Letterman,' according to The Publicity Agency (www.thepublicityagency.com), the PR/publicity firm hired by the former governor.

In between, the governor will also be a guest on CNN's 'Larry King Live' at 9pm ET and Fox News' 'On the Record with Greta Van Susteren' at 10pm ET.

The interview on 'Today' with Meredith Vieira will be Blagojevich's first since being impeached last Thursday.

The national TV appearances mark the first interviews since the Illinois State Senate ousted Blagojevich as governor.

Former Governor Rod Blagojevich is also scheduled for various radio and newspaper interviews.

Too bad, hard to believe the media is this desperate.

It's sad they don't give the time and publicity to a family that that is more deserving of help or did something monumental to help others.

It is past time for Mr Blagojevich to retire from public view. His lies and twisting of facts is legendary in Illinois. It has no place in any public forum unless there is a person of integrity to refute the lies, appearing at the same time and in the same space.

Ditto to 2 prev posts... What rankles me is that none of these media are refusing his come-on--Why not just say thanks, but NO THANKS??

Right, Tom. Media must be quite desperate!

I remember Rod Blagojevich's Salt Satyagraha, when he marched 248 miles from downtown Chicago to make his own salt on the shore of Lake Michigan.

STILL BEGGING FOR MONEY!
SOMEONE SHOULD REMAKE ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S
NEST PART 2!
I DON'T THINK JACK WOULD MIND ONE BIT!
ALL OF THESE NETWORKS ARE HELPING A FUTURE
CONVICT TELL MORE FABLES!
GO HOME FORMER GOV AND TRY TO SELL YOUR HOME
BEFORE SOMEONE SLAPS A LIEN ON IT!
GO HOME AND GET YOUR AFFAIRS IN ORDER, YOUR TRIAL
DATE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
LOOSE LIPS DO SINK SHIPS!

Yes why given Blago more chances to tell the same lies.
Also the interviews need to be better. He has the answer about seeing the senate seat ready, so he should be asked about his other scams like trying to blackmial Children's Memorial Hospital and the Chicago Tribune.
Also How about asking how he plans to tap into his campaign war chest.

Give him enough rope, and he will hang himself. I won't watch. He spits out the same thing over and over. He doesn't take questions. He lets nobody else speak. He thinks he is smarter and more important than anyone else. JUST GIVE HIM ENOUGH ROPE. He'll do the rest.

HE IS ABOUT OUT OF ROPE, HE IS A DROWNING MAN,
THAT'S WHY LETTERMAN ASKED HIM WHY HE IS ON HIS
SHOW!
THE PATHOLOGY THIS MAN SHOWS IS PATHETIC!
THE BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS HIS PARENT'S WENT
THROUGH FOR THIS GUY TO GROW INTO WHAT HE IS NOW,
IS TERRIBLE!
HE NEEDS TO PLAY THAT MICHAEL JACKSON SONG - THE
MAN IN THE MIRROR!

FOX NEWS LOVES THE FORMER GOV!
MAYBE AFTER HE GETS OUT, HE CAN WORK FOR THEM,
THEY DON'T TELL THE TRUTH EITHER!
