Despite the brouhaha over Oprah reportedly “banning” Sarah Palin from her show during the 2008 presidential campaign (an allegation that Oprah denies), Palin has agreed to appear on the Nov. 16 edition of the chat show. The subject will be — SHOCKER! — Palin’s forthcoming book titled “Going Rogue: An American Life” and who-knows-what-else. Perhaps a critique of Levi’s appearance in Playgirl?
Going on “Oprah,” says Tom Rosenstiel, director of Washington-based Project for Excellence in Journalism, “is a way of re-introducing herself . . . to an audience that’s not political junkies,” although he adds that big entertainment platforms like this can also be a great place to break “big news.” And I don’t think he means her new recipe for Moose Meatloaf.
Also, now that she’s unemployed, Palin probably has her fingers crossed for another car giveaway!
