Interviews For Palin's Upcoming Fox News Special Not Recent Or Current

    As I understand this article, although they will be featured in it, neither LL Cool J nor Toby Keith gave recent interviews to Fox News for the upcoming special to be hosted by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

    Way to stay current and classy, Fox News & Gov. Palin.


    The only reason I would watch this (if I can talk myself into it!!) is to see Palin's presentation skills (she was a former TV sports reporter). Want to see her slip into reporter/anchor/host mode just to experience it.

    Thoughts/comments. Civility, please.

    From what I read, they were interviewed specifically for the show, but at the time it was a show without a host.
    I don't think it's dishonest. I think a lot of celebrities are going to throw a shitfit about it because of their ill-informed political views on Palin.

    I can't imagine that's why Toby Keith is upset. Though the LL Cool J tweets about Palin are his most unintentionally hilarious feud since Kool Moe Dee.

    Yes, people are ill-informed about Palin. That's definitely the problem.

    The first one is just a shot at Fox News for taking the approach they did (using old footage rather than going out and getting fresh interviews...shows lack of class or initiative). The second was just trying to avoid getting a lock put on the thread.

    Oh c'mon - journalistically, it's completely not kosher.

    For somebody to give Fox an interview - only to find it fronted by one of the most polarizing political figures of our time - not honest, and not cool.

    Kind of like if President Obama agreed to be interviewed by an Extra producer about healthcare... only to have it fronted by "correspondent" Rachel Uchitel.

    I totally see Lugnuts' point. A celeb who does not subscribe to Fox's POV can come back and complain, potentially, of being misrepresented or misled about the reason for the interview, right??

    The LL Cool J interview is two years old.

    And the "Ill-informed" comment is hilarious.

    ... and it will still get better ratings than CNN.

    Which, if it does, amraeder, will be unfortunate, IMHO.
