Sarah Palin doesn't actually interview anyone. TPM's Jillian Rayfield:
The interviews appear to have been filmed awhile back for the "Real American Heroes" website, which is owned by Fox News.Are you serious? Could FOX just not find anybody softball enough to sit down to talk to Sarah Palin for 7 minutes? Nobody? A sports star? A Republican from...somewhere? Victoria Jackson? You're telling me FOX is running an interview show with Sarah Palin...and she's not in any of the interviews?
It now seems that there was a lack of clarity on how the interviews would be used, and by whom.
A spokesperson for Keith told HitFix today: "We were never contacted by Fox. I have no idea what interview it's taken from. They're promoting this like it's a brand new interview. He never sat down with Sarah Palin."
I keep saying "Boy, the Right Wing Noise Machine must really, really think Americans are the stupidest people on Earth." I never expected FOX to turn around and actually prove that adage on an idle Wednesday in March.
Oh, it gets worse.
Last night, LL Cool J slammed Fox News on his Twitter feed:Because the overarching vibe you get from FOX News is the sterling sense of journalistic professionalism they exude like a newspaper-scented Glade Plug-In. And actually, I'd bet Toby Keith or LL Cool J could do a better job interviewing "Real American People" than Moose Lady, the failed Governor of Moose World, the Moosiest Place On Earth. Honestly, how many people immediately associate the words "Real American People" with "Half-Term Governors Who Quit From Alaska"?
Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOWFox News responded:
Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith's interview fit that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career.
If there were any justice, this woman would be reduced to the occasional guest villain role on "My Life On The D-List with Kathy Griffin". Instead, I'm hoping she's the woman who gives Barack Obama four more years.
