Sarah Palin tells Sean Hannity: I won’t talk to Katie Couric again
Orlando Sentiel ^ | 11/22/2010 | Hal Boedeker

Posted on 11/22/2010 1:35:38 PM PST by WebFocus

Sarah Palin will be in several places tonight on television.

She will attend “Dancing With the Stars” on ABC, starting at 8 p.m., to see daughter Bristol dance. And former Gov. Palin has a taped interview with Sean Hannity on “Hannity,” starting at 9 on Fox News Channel. (A warning: “Dancing” is supposed to run till 9:11 p.m.)

The headline from “Hannity”: Palin won’t be giving another interview to CBS’ Katie Couric.

About another Couric interview, Palin says: “As for doing an interview, though, with a reporter who already has such a bias against whatever it is that I would come out and say? Why waste my time? No.”

Palin also weighs in on the state of journalism: “I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism, who, what, where, when, and why of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us.

Maybe Katie can interview Tina Fey and pretend like she's interviewing Sarah.

And state-run media can pretend they are actual Palin quotes!

Better to just bury her.

That may be true but I agree with Sarah. Don’t play their game and besides, why give The Perky One the ratings?

She should do an interview with the Perky One, but only under certain conditions. It must be live, continuous, and without editing.

Also, her people must be allowed to record it also (just incase the CBS camera people are biased in their angles.)

Sarah should describe in great detail about Katie Couric and her last interview...

How she asked her the same question over and over again, until she finallly in frustration said “I’ll have to get back to you” and then that’s all they used on the show

-"Mistake. Sarah can handle that bimbo."

I agree on the "bimbo" part, but the "mistake" would be in providing "the bimbo" with valuable air time. At this stage of the game, it's the "bimbo" who needs Sarah, not the other way around.

It isn't a matter of handling Couric. It's a principle of not rewarding a journalist who hasn't proven she is capable of doing quality work. Perky Katie needs to show she can be a responsible journalist.

She just did. Reverse Alinsky baby, she just marginalized her and by extension that other scullery hag Angrea Mitchell.

You don't think that will make their egos even more fragile and chase her more and make them look even crazier?

Somewhere Sarah has either taken a number of Physc Classes or studied Sun Tzu, and or Machiavelli.

Man she is livin' in all their heads rent free....

Oh she was. But knowing what she knows now Sarah could more than hold her own. She should insist on having the whole interview broadcast uncut of course. Any one who is not a completed progressive would be nuts to let Big media edit any thing you say.

Couric is a has-been. Sarah has so many more ways to reach the public now than that. She’s online, at the tea parties, has a TV show. Really, it’s almost limitless. In the past a candidate had to rely on TV, radio, newspaper and magazine interviews. An entire universe has opened up since then.

Or is Katie living in Sarah's head rent free? Sarah has become a bit thin skinned herself about the media. If you aspire to be president you better be able to handle the media with grace because they are never going to cut her any slack.

Sarah has made too many career mistakes lately to be considered presidential. Your either a reality star or a political leader, hard to be both.

I’ve never understood why Republicans - especially conservatives - would deliberately stick their arms into rattlesnake nests. It makes even less sense as the Democrat “mainstream” newsrooms continue to plod toward their deserved deaths.

Sarah is right on this one! It’s time that the LSM meet on our terms not their terms, Perky Katie has terrible ratings and even if Katie was somehow fair to Sarah in an interview it would only enhanced Katie and CBS......all of you did notice that the two recent articles that were fair to Sarah(NYT & Real Clear Politics) had greater access to her inner circle than any snotty nosed bias news agency ever had....they want access to Sarah for exclusive reporting but THEY know that they must be fair or lose out on any info. I guarantee you that if there was an interview, CBS would hype the bad interview from 2008, the whole entire week and she would question Palin on some of the same questions she didn’t answer the first time....it’s time not to play their game, we set the rules not them

I think it is a mistake to even bring up any of the low points of 2008. And why not interview with Couric, so long as it is a live broadcast and not the 20 minutes they wanted you to see of over an hour of question and answer?

She needed to either not bring it up at all, or have a better answer than not talking to a hostile media. The media WILL be hostile, they cannot be avoided in a Presidential run, you either have a strategy to neutralize their attempts to make you look bad, or you do not.

To me this telegraphs that she doesn't have a plan in place to weather hostile interviews and media manipulation of source material.

That reminds me of something I read about Reagan. A foreign reporter once asked him how a it was possible for a former actor to be elected president. Reagan responded that he could not figure out how anyone could be elected without having been an actor.

This is GREAT. First, Gingrich suggested that he wouldn't participate in debates where Moderators were State-Run-Media only, and now Sarah Palin has thumbed her nose at another Liberal tool ("Perky").

As I've said before, Conservatives should just refuse to appear on the SETUPS that are called "news forums", run by the State-Run-Media, and not appear on their shows at all. Let them go ahead and do their thing with their own kind, but don't allow them to manipulate the words/questions to favor their agenda. The Sheeple that watch those theatrical productions called news are too ignorant and biased to be worthwhile receptors of facts and truth, anyway. Their audience just supports those who would give them more of other peoples' earnings to buy their votes, and most never held a real job in their lifetimes.

she hasn't killed anyone in her car and run away.

she isn't an alcoholic, yet

she isn't getting oral sex from young staffers in the executive office

hasn't been accused of rape,

released her transcripts and college records

Her birth certificate is available

She was a mayor and governor and resigned in order to stop the criminal use of the judiciary in Alaska to bankrupt her with endless suits.

I'd say she's going to do just fine as our next president. She's better than Obama, Carter and any democrat quisling currently suggested including Queen of the Lesbians-Hilary Clinton.

she just scares the cr@p out of the libs and power elite. I'm voting for her just to gum up the works. The more they try to destroy her, her family and her reputation, the more likely she seems to be the correct conservative to put in the Presidency.

She was set up. That taped interview was taped over several meetings, and only the worst parts were aired. A reporter, whose name I cannot remember, stated he went to the cutting room and managed to get the entire tape(s) and it was really a pretty good interview. It was just cut to serve the perky ones bias. No--Sarah should never give a sentence to katie. She is a snake.
