Default Palin+Fox=more BS!

Palin, Fox News, LL Cool J tangle over phantom interview

Wed Mar 31, 6:43 pm ET

Here's a chapter in the culture wars that no one saw coming: Sarah Palin and Fox News facing off against '80s rap star and actor LL Cool J.

Palin makes her hosting debut Thursday night on Fox, as captain of an interview special in Greta Von Susteren's 10 p.m. slot. The show is called "Real American Stories," and the New York Daily News explains that it chronicles "people who have overcome adversity and more."

Among the success stories Palin plans to highlight are those of country music star Toby Keith, former GE Chairman Jack Welch, and a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor. LL Cool J (birth name James Todd Smith) was also included in the roster — which prompted some conservative commenters to gloat a bit.

Popular conservative blogger Allahpundit tweaked liberals who accuse Tea Party supporters of racist sympathies, saying they'll be "shocked to find the alleged Grand Dragon of the tea-party movement making chitchat with a hip-hop legend."
The problem is that no such chitchat was produced for the Palin show. LL Cool J, star of "NCIS: Los Angeles," tweeted Tuesday night: "Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW."

When contacted by Yahoo! News for comment, a Fox News spokesperson explained that LL Cool J had been informed in 2008 that the interview was planned as a segment for "Real American Stories"--though of course the network couldn't have known at the time that Palin would be hosting.

The Fox spokesperson also provided us with a statement:
"Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith's interview fit that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."

Attempts to reach LL Cool J for comment proved unsuccessful. Perhaps he intends a more recent Twitter entry to serve as his rejoinder to the Fox statement: "Nobody can bring you peace but yourself."

Update: Looks like the confusion isn't limited to the hip hop genre. Toby Keith's publicist tells the New York Times that Keith has never done an interview with Palin and she had no idea he was being used in the Palin special. She believes that Fox will be recycling an interview Keith gave Fox in 2009

They all do...not surprised a moonbat plucked this out of the ether and attempted to make it somehow more than it is and worse than it is simply because they hate the network.

No, the SALIENT part of the retort was that this is pretty much SOP for ALL news organizations. Reading comprehension is fundamental.

That is also NOT a deflection. It is common practice for producers to conduct interviews, then have a talking head film a separate segment where it appears THEY are asking the principle the questions.

This very common practice is being scrutinized and magnified because the press dislikes Palin...but I think it's cute that you want to call me out simply because I'm explaining the practice.

As for the moonbat comment, I only call 'em as I see 'em...

Oh Rev, still acting like a 13 year old with the name calling. Maybe you should post some more editorials...believe in your own mind that they are fact, when they are completely opinion.

Ha, who gives a crap about the websites name. Just watch the video, Fox News (if you can call it a news station) is garbage, you never saw and Liberal news stations interrupt the previous presidential train wreck, did you? The crap you have going on over there is comical.

Wait, wait....there's a response coming in right now.....from the highly credible "Democratsarepoopheads.com".

Your name was whines hard. It was, to say the least, apropos. How can I be calling you a name when you named yourself?
