Oprah Winfrey refuses to interview Sarah Palin on her daytime talk show

September 5th, 2008 Urban Conservative

… until after she is Vice President of the United States. : )

This just in from the Drudge; he is reporting that Oprah’s staff is sharply divided on the merits of bringing Sarah Palin in for an interview.  “Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on,” one insider explains. “Oprah’s website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama.”

And, apparently one executive close to Oprah is warning that any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash to the Obama campaign.  Oprah’s executive producer Sheri Salata; who has also contributed thousands of dollars to Obama’s campaign refused to comment on the issue, of course.   This comes after Oprah blocked an appearance by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas from appearing on her show last year.  Seems to me like there is a pattern here.

Oprah responded to Drudge’s report (pun intended) here:

The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.

Maybe, just maybe they are talking behind her back because of her open endorsement of Obama. The other issue is that Americans are curious as to who Sarah Palin is. This is quite obvious given the number of viewers of her speech the other night at the Republican National Convention.  Also, Oprah has already used her show as a platform for a candidate. She has had Senator Barack Obama on her show twice (in 2005 and 2006).  And even if she hasn’t had him on her show recently, Winfrey’s name alone has helped snag over 1 million voters for Obama, according to a recent study. Isn’t it fair to share the love and limelight with the other side, which is much more attractive to look at anyway? In this case, perhaps the fairness doctrine would come in handy.

I know most of you adore Oprah, but ummm … I can’t stand her.

There are actually people who like Oprah??? hmmmm, who knew.

I would personally take it as a feather in my hat to not be asked on Oprah. Soon to be VP Palin should wipe her brow and utter a hearty, thank goodness I don't have to go on THAT show.

Wonder what Oprah is scared of???

Personally, I think Sarah Palin would refuse an invite from Winfrey to appear on the show.  Palin does not strike me as someone who would lose any sleep over this issue--she has more important ways to spend her time. 

Oprah, like the rest of the NBC liberal media, is afraid of the truth....America is falling in love with Sarah Palin!!!  Her little darling, Barak, is being out-shined.

Since when does Oprah count as "media" (in the context of your frequently referenced media bias...of course all entertainment falls under the strict definition of the word)?

I've never liked Oprah, but her show is privately owned, syndicated (not part of one of the networks), and is an ENTERTAINMENT program.  She's entitled to use her airtime anyway she wants. 

Obviously she likes Obama, but jumping on her neck for not wanting to promote Palin is a joke.  Equal access only applies to the networks and stations themselves, not the entertainment programming they run.

Since when is Oprah the media?  lol

As usual, you all get half the story and fill in the blanks on the end.  

She stated that she didn't think it was appropriate to have Palin on since she has openly endorsed Obama.  That's character people.  

She also said that she would love to interview her and would like to have her on after the election.

If you are from a state not connected to the lower 48, America needs darn near 2 years and 3 major speeches to "get to know you." 
If you're from a state not connected to the lower 48, America needs 36 minutes and 38 seconds worth of an acceptance speech to know you're "one of us."

This Oprah story makes absolutely no sense.  Oprah has said that this is not the case.  Palin won't even talk to the main national media.  I suspect that Palin isn't quite ready - still being coached by the Republicans to make sure she doesn't put her foot in her mouth.  Why would she go on Oprah?

This is what floors me.  Libs like Obama would rather derail his chances for the presidency by trading in 18,000,000 solidified votes for an old puck bag, a mule named "michelle" and ... Joe Biden.  Just goes to show that he is no more progressive or honest than any 30 year Washington insider.  Now, here's another moonbat, Oprah, who would give up a ratings bonanza not to mention sponsor's millions just so she can protect her little Obamanation.  Racist is she?  Most definitely.  Her white staffers begged her for the Palin intrerview, but her racist beliefs prevent this from happening.  How about Bill O'Reilley?  The libs have called a lot more than racist yet he has demanded AND got the 2 part interview with the mighty Apollo.  The fairness doctrine?  LOL

If these cretins make such foolish decisions on realitively "no brainer" issues, how can we honestly think they will make any better decisions when the stakes are much higher?

It's Oprah's show.  It has her name on it.  She has made a billion dollars doing it her way.  Seriously she's a billionaire.  She has made her choice.  She is under no obligation to be fair or give equal time.  It's not a news show.  Don't worry, Fox will have its "exclusive first (softball) interview" with the Grandma, mark my words.  Give her a chance to be fully programed by the McCain campaign.  It's going to take a while to get all of that nonsense through her beehive.  I imagine the programing she is going through as something like that scene with Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.

I agree it is her show and she can do whatever it is she wishes.  The point that you libs cannot fathom is that it is an entirely HORRIBLE business decision.  C'mon.  If you leftists were intellectually honest (which I know is an impossibility) giving up ratings and dollars for her political beliefs and not on business shows that her inflated Ego is on par with her boyfriend, Obama.

No, the point of this story was supposed to be that Oprah is using her show to promote her "liberal" viewpoint, and that in the interest of "fairness" she should afford the same platform to Palin that she has for Obama.

You seem so quick to say that she (and "leftists") aren't being intellectually honest, but if it were the other way around...and she was going against her personal beliefs strictly to make a buck you would call her morally bankrupt.  You can't have it both ways. 

Besides, these are the types of decisions you afford yourself when you are worth $2.5B.

The Oprah thing is a non-issue. Oprah is quasi-political, in the sense that Rush Limbaugh is. Not that they'd ever do it, but would we think Rush had some obligation to have Obama or Biden on his show if they wanted to be? Certainly, he wouldn't be seeking it--it's not what his show is about. And Oprah doesn't want to throw softballs to Palin, ala Obama, and she also doesn't want to be the attack dog, trashing Palin while she praises Obama. It would make no sense to have Palin on, and getting on her about it is just silly. 

I think it would be a good platform for Palin, I can see how it might be beneficial, especially if Oprah lobbed softballs--point is, Oprah doesn't want to be in the position of doing either thing.

I understand your point of view.  What would have been the result if there was a white counterpart to Oprah and she refused to speak to Obama?  There would have been many on the left exploit this situation as racist.  Face it, Obama's strategy from the get go was to make all criticism of Obama racist, ie, not wanting a blackman POTUS.  He did it during the primaries and he has doubled his efforts agianst McCain.

The days for fair and balanced reporting are long gone. What we now have is a marketplace of 'media' products to choose from. If you are a 'liberal' you buy from one shop, 'conservative' from somewhere else. The products are designed and tailored to a particular demographic's point of view. To ask for fairness is ridiculous in this market free for all. The media moguls could care less. They are in it for profit; not truth, fairness, nor justice. Oprah sells what Oprah sells. Either buy it or move on down the aisle. On the right we have FOX, owned by Rupert Murdoch who wholeheartedly wants Obama to be the next President. Seems like a paradox but really isn't: he makes a hell of a lot of money serving up Conservative commentary to the ever hungry masses on the Right. If he wants to donate millions to Obama's campaign there's nothing you can do about it, and it's none of your effing business. It's his and he invented a product you want to consume. Notions of Truth and Principle are artifacts of a nostalgic past.

MyAvatars 0.2 Sceptical Republican
Sunday, September 7th, 2008 at 10:11 am

The best line in this year's Republican convention came from Mike Huckabee. Confronting all the gossip about Palin's lack of experience he stated the following fact:

*Sarah Palin got more votes running for mayor of Wasila, Alaska, than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States.

In fact, Biden got some 9000 votes in this year's Democratic primary. (By the way, Hillary Cliton, who was passed over for the VP slot, got 18 million).

And Biden has run for president before, in 1987. Most people have forgotten (or never knew) about Biden's earlier run, but The Economist unceremoniously reminds us in the August 28 edition. In that race, Biden not only borrowed a speech from Niel Kinnock, the British Labor leader, and presented it as his own. He even plagiarized Kinnock's life story, claiming to be the first in his family to go to college and that his ancestors worked in a coal mine. Of course, when this came out, Biden's campaign collapsed like a house of cards.

You've got to wonder when and how Biden will blow up in this race. It could get quite spectacular.

Apart from the Huckabee kick, Sarah Palin's own speech was quite a ride. She went after Obama in a way no one has done before, exposing the hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement. A couple of good ones off the top of my head:

- Obama has written two auto biographies but not authored a single significant bill
- "We prefer people who don't speak to us one way when they're in Scranton and then in another way when they're in San Francisco" (a dig at Obama's "bitter" comments)
- "Here's a candidate who can give an entire speech about the war in Iraq without once mentioning the word Victory, except when he talks about his own campaign".
- "I guess a mayer is sort of like a community organizer, except you have actual responsibilities".

The reason why the media and the left wing bloggers are going so hard after Palin is because she's dangerous. They all expected an Obama coronation in November, with the elections a minor nuisance on the path to glory. If you saw the Obama Europe tour earlier this year, you may even have thought he'd skipped the US presidential elections all together and was running for world president.

But now this woman comes along and throws a wrench in the plans. Palin is something very unusual in this campaign: She comes across as genuine, a fighter who has taken unpopular positions, fought corruption in her own party, and thrown out incumbents. She connects extremely well with ordinary folks. So clearly the left needs to discredit her achievements. They're throwing the kitchen sink at her and is looking to see what sticks.

The real danger to Obama's campaign here is that Palin is about to reveal what has been the case the whole time: Obama is not the agent of change he proclaims. In his first important decision as candidate, he picked Biden, the 36-year Washington insider, as his sidekick.

And looking at Obama's record, nothing points to the kind of post partisanship or change he talks about all the time. In fact, he completely squandered the opportunity to clean up Chicago politics when he was a state senator (something that would have provided real benefits but also earned him enemies in his own party). He never stood up to the old boys network in Chicago politics, and he has no achievements at all to talk about in the US senate. (By the way, he's been a member of the US senate for 3 1/2 years, half of which (at least) was spent campaigning for president. So I guess that gives him about 1 1/2 years of actual "experience" in the senate.)

The democrats are in trouble and they know it. If Obama loses the freshness and "change" veneer you've got to wonder what is left of his campaign.

Palin's address to the convention has been seen for what it was:
a complete distortion and lie-filled oratory to pander to the people in funny hats.

Gov. Sarah Palin did not even bat an eye to claim in her address at the convention that Sen. Barack Obama "is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform -- not even in the state senate,"  I have here a list of Obama's work:

Sarah Palin mocked "community organizer" - quite obviously not knowing what that was.  She not only insulted those people in these programs which Obama helped to secure (working with faith-based organizations I might add) to assist people to learn to help themselves- this unfortunate selection of a VP choice went on to mock the very items the GOP claims to support. 

For the record, Joe Biden got 79,754 total votes in the Democratic primaries...just slightly more than Palin's - about 75,000 more.

Skeptical Republican said;

- Obama has written two auto biographies but not authored a single significant bill

That is a lie, not the books the legislation.  Anyone can look up legislation on thomas.loc.gov.  Senator Obama has sponsored more legislation in support of Veterans then John McCain has voted for.

- "We prefer people who don't speak to us one way when they're in Scranton and then in another way when they're in San Francisco" (a dig at Obama's "bitter" comments)

I prefer people who talk about middle class issues not Christian Zealot agenda.  I prefer people who are not so totally clueless about national and foreign policy.  I prefer people who don't lie, repeatedly.

- "Here's a candidate who can give an entire speech about the war in Iraq without once mentioning the word Victory, except when he talks about his own campaign".

Victory in Iraq, what does that mean..?  Iraq wants us to leave, it's time we did.

- "I guess a mayer is sort of like a community organizer, except you have actual responsibilities"."

First responsibility, hire a city administrator to handle the day to day affairs that the barbie doll can't be bothered with.  Does Caribou Barbie not realize that suffragettes like Susan B.

An appearance on the show would serve Mrs Palin no advantage.
The risks of such would far outweigh any positive gain.
1. A mis spoken, word, taken out of context, spread across the net, MSM, why it would be worse than the Obama mis spoken, Muslim conversation.
2. Ms Oprah has already opted for Obama, so the interview would be front loaded bias.
3. MSM enjoys such disdain, the current USA Electorate would rather watch baseball.
Let Mrs Palin continue to expend her efforts to elect Mr McCain. That is the individual we are considering. The VP is along for the ride.
Note Mr Biden, still making his gaffes, with no MSM comment.
Note Mr, Obama, now contesting Mrs Palin.
Note the Latest September Poll surge for the GOP, et al
Some thing has happened.
Could it be that the USA Electorate has or is making up it's mind.?

I would offer a further comment re the current Left campaign to divert our attention from Issues, Agendas et al of the GOP and the Leftist Dems.
1. This is a trait and tactic straight out of the Left's USSR play book
2. When directly attacked, pull back, call for diversions. Straight out of the USSR Tank Defense manual. Attack on the flanks, use your allies, call for help from the deep ranks of supporters.
3. This is exactly what has and is happening this September. The Left suffered a body blow from the RNC convention. Unexpected, unforseen, an unknown player. Call the Left Bloggers. Blog endlessly about minutiae, which has nothing to do with the Lefts' purpose, Elect Obama.
4. However, the Left is not the USSR Tank General of WW2 fame. He won. The Left today is a pale shadow of their adopted tactician.
My Opine.
The Left, as currently using the Democratic Party has lost thier way. Typical, as their attention span is short anyway. No more Iraq war to demo against. No more GOP gaffes to laugh at. The Issue list is growing short, the USA Electorate is wakening and the polls show this.
Additionally, one of their allies, the MSM seems to be awakening to the possibility that if Obama is indeed elected, there will be only ONE outlet, LINK TV, a George Soros Sop. SO, where does this place the MSM? Outside the Oval Office and the CEOs know this. So, another ally is deserting, maybe.....
Enough, My fingers are tired.

Oprah is a melomaniacal, hyper materialistic, narcissistic, power hungry liberal loony BITCH. She's so in love with herself she probably thinks her shit doesn't stink!

I can't stand Oprah! She is so out of touch with reality she doesn't even know how to pump her own gas. And what's up with that bff of hers? Seems downright bicurious! Oprah is a meglomaniacal, overly pampered, hyper materialistic, vain, narcisstic, liberal bitch. She probably thinks her shit don't stank!

Those of you who are voting for McCain/Palin - wake up and realize that they are LIARS. Realize that if McCain dies in office, Palin doesn't have the brains, or the experience to run this country. Please listen to the truth before you make that mistake and give your vote to them.

This website has collected most of the data out there on Palin.

Wake up!

Hey Gary,
You sound angry.  Since when does one candidate have to honor or even consider another's request.  Barack could give two craps about what Father Time wants so he did what he should of done which is dismiss the idea.  BTW, Goldwater and JFK TALKED about doing the joint town hall meetings.  There was no agreement.  Oprah has made a billion dollars doing things HER way.  Plus, for the 100th time, Oprah has no obligation to have anyone on her show.  She is not a journalist or politician.  She is a business woman and talk show host.  She supports Barack.  Until and unless you have made a billion dollars with any of your abilities, ideas or talent, you just look silly criticizing her.  You have the right to but it's sort like John MCaCain't giving advice on how to run a computer.  The only thing you could advise Oprah on is how to talk to people more intelligent than themselves since I suspect you have a lot of experience doing that.  Also, my lawn needs cutting can you show up and mow it or do you lack the "guts" to.  Do you see how absurd that proposition is?  You don't care about my lawn and Barack doesn't care about appearing with Old Man River.

There is plenty to be learned from town hall meetings but one campaign is never going to dictate the agenda to another.  That's just silly and you know it.  What if Joe Biden called out the Grandma for town hall meetings starting tomorrow.  Do you think she would show up?  What if Barack challenged McCain to a series of one on one basketball games?  Do you think he would show up?  I think we would learn a lot about the candidates watching them play hoop.  Don't you agree?  See how hollow and false that fabricated complaint can become.  Plus we now know that Old Man River can't draw a crowd on his own so of course he wants town hall meetings so he can have an audience he would not otherwise have.  There are three scheduled debates for the lead candidates.  I promise my man will be there.

I believe that it is Oprah's show and she is entitled to have who she wants on the show.  She has a very good show and if she had Sarah Palin on it I probley wouldn't watch it anyway.

I don't like everything about Oprah, but her charitable work is impressive.

About the show...it's her show, right?  If I had a show I wouldn't put Palin on.  Unless, of course, I wanted to sneak in a 'gotchya' question just for fun.

I heard Oprah's ratings have gone way down since she made this announcement! On the one hand I understand her point, but to interview the 2nd VP female  candidate ever in history just seems crazy. Especially because she is a feminist to some degree. I know her ratings would have shot up if she had put her on. I used to watch the show but do not much any more since she has gotten a little fruity,
