It looks like Sarah Palin wouldn't mind being part of that "lamestream media" she's always knocking. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Palin let it be known that even though she's "really excited" about the upcoming second season of her current show on The Sportsman Channel, she might be just what The View needs. And guess which "fair and balanced" news network that currently employs her she didn't mention?
The Hollywood Reporter interview was conducted by email, presumably so Palin wouldn't get any trick questions about what newspapers she reads or her thoughts on foreign policy. Instead, THR lobbed softballs such as, "What was your favorite show from season one?" and "What television shows do you like to watch with your family?"
Palin's answer to that last question was, "Amazing America! Getting outside to experience our amazing America is better than watching pretty much any show, other than our own." One can understand her naming her current reality TV show, especially when the interview seemed timed around the announcement of its second season. But don't you think it odd that a political pundit and former politician wouldn't mention Fox News as a family favorite, too? Especially when she is, apparently, still a paid contributor?
Even more noteworthy, as far as I'm concerned, when asked if she was interested in hosting a political talk show, Palin didn't mention Fox News, but The View:
Any interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet?
Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today's politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It'd be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I'd do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I'm known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America's heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.
Something tells me that The View is going to want someone who can actually discuss issues and, probably, reads newspapers.
Palin: “All of ’em!”
No – you’re not.
She knows she’s in a perfect place to continue the act at Fox or just allow herself to speak before conservative friendly only crowds. To be a regular on The View would expose her weaknesses and while she would be given the subjects of what issues will be discussed, she won’t have the home court advantage that Fox provides. She knows she’s in the perfect place to be to continue making money.
She represents nothing more than ratings for the Fox audience who want to hear her childish rants against the President.
Plus, they must know that she can make one sentence last for 15 minutes or more with her word salad speaking style.
She’s a human filibuster machine! Which wouldn’t work great for having a “conversation” with others.
Just ‘cause she’s really stupid doesn’t mean that ABC has to be really stupid and hire the moron.
She’ll probably tell us that if they don’t hire her, they are taking away her 1st Amendment rights!
Without her ghost writers and handlers The Quitter would most likely expose herself as the dumb ass she truly is.
You’re right, bemused. Such stupidness just leaves one speechless.
These both airheads would make a great comedy duo.
Words fail me.
The same way YOU got “canned” as Governor of Alaska.
Except the ladies “canned” from “The View” didn’t have any scandals they were running away from.
Still, a “canned” ham is better suited to be a host for “The View” than you are.
