Oprah Winfrey gets 'world exclusive' with Sarah Palin
Orlando Sentinel ^ | Oct. 20, 2009 | Hal Boedeker

Posted on 10/20/2009 10:47:57 AM PDT by Al B.

Sarah Palin wants to sell some books. She is giving an interview to Oprah Winfrey that will air Monday, Nov. 16.

Winfrey has the golden touch when it comes to pushing books.

The Winfrey folks called the interview a "world exclusive." It will be Palin's first interview to promote her book, "Going Rogue: An American Life."

And people said this meeting would never happen! What do you think about this?

The interview will air during the important November ratings period, so Palin should help Winfrey, too.

That's how the book business works, folks.

The interview will be Palin's first appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Winfrey was a staunch supporter of Barack Obama in last year's presidential election. Former Alaska Gov. Palin was John McCain's running mate.

The Winfrey folks are calling the show "The Oprah Winfrey Show: Exclusive -- Oprah Talks to Sarah Palin."

Can’t say I blame her. I’d go on “The Lucifer Satanheim Show” if it would get one of my novels published.

Expect the tape to be edited heavily to make Palin look stupid like last year.

Geesh... I want Sarah and her book to succeed BIG TIME, but it’s unfortunate she’s apparently going to appear on hypocrite Oprah the #1 Obama Supporter’s show... she dissed Sarah during Campaign 2008.

It will be interesting to see which Opray shows up for the interview. Palin better have her claws all sharpened up to
go at Oprah's throat if necessary.

I doubt this is even true. I would be shocked if Sarah would agree to meet with the devil known as Oprah. Oprah had her chance to meet with her after she was selected but chose not to because she knew if she did, it would help McCain. Sarah doesn’t need Oprah to sell books. This blog sounds bogus. This blog makes it look like Sarah is desperate to sell books, her book is already a best seller without it even being sold yet

I agree with both of your statements. I'll bet Oprah will get her best ratings in decades that day!

That will be the one and only day I and millions of others will tune in...

Hal Boedeker is the TV critic for the Orlando Sentinel. I suspect this is real but we’ll see.

She’d better be ready for the “gotcha” style media this time around. Oprah will pull the same kind of crap that Katie and Charlie did.

Very smart move by Palin. Oprah’s minions - suburban housewives - are ripe for picking by Palin.

Besides, she will sell a lot of books to them.

As much as I despise people like Oprah and the way they treated Sarah, I think this is a good move. Her audience is EXACTLY the the kinds of folks whose minds Sarah needs to change.

I'm sure she's been careful about the ground rules for this appearance.

I doubt it. I think Oprah will be cordial and will emphasize what she has in common with another smart, successful woman.

I’ll watch it on youtube so I don’t increase Oprah’s ratings.

Unless you're one of the 25,000 households with a Neilson box hooked up, nobody knows or cares what you watch.

But if you do have a Neilson box, don't watch Oprah.

I love Palin and I will continue to support her, for now.BUT, this was a VERY reckless move on her part.

My money says that she is going to regret walking into this trap.

Yeah but this “blog” makes it appear she is desperate to sell her book, when in reality her book made the best seller before it was even released. I can just imagine Oprah’s audience, full of Obama zombies, booing her when she enters the stage. Sarah doesn’t need that. The event for the Wisconsin Right To Life is already sold out the minute people heard Sarah would be attending. She doesn’t need the devil Oprah to sell books

Then why didn’t she do it during the campaign when it would have mattered.....

Is anybody seriously worried that Palin can't handle an interview with Oprah?

Oprah's going to ask her things like how she met her husband, how she handles raising kids with a career, and how she "feels" about crap.

Actually, we need to send the ratings into orbit when Palin shows up.

Doesn’t seem wise to to me, but maybe Sarah knows what she is doing. At least she is not being forced into the interview by people that hate her. And she must know that Oprah and her minions hate her and want her to fail.
