Sarah Palin’s Fox show unmasked as a phony

Sarah Palin: A real American phony

The high-profile launch of Sarah Palin’s “Real American Stories” on Fox News Channel should be retitled “Manufactured American Fantasies” after two of the subjects she suppossedly interviewed for the debut show say they were never contacted by Palin or Fox.

Turns out the network recycled old interview of LL Cool J and Toby Keith video footage for the show and Palin had neither met nor interviewed either.

Keith’s spokesman Wednesday said the country music entertainer, a registered Democrat, was not interviewed by Palin and was unaware that he was a featured subject on her initial show.

Earlier in the day, actor-rapper LL Cool J said Fox was “repackaging” an interview from 2008 and claiming it was an appearance for Palin. The performer said Fox’s claims were a “misrpresentation.”

Fox later announced it would delete the LL Cool J segment from the program.

The channel claimed it had spoken to Keith’s representatives, who responded that the network was lying.

Elaine Schock, Keith’s publicist, told The New York Times:

I have no idea what interview they are using. Toby’s talked to Fox a number of times, and I had no idea that this was going to be on Sarah Palin’s special. Fox has never contacted me — not now, not when they were putting this together, not at all. I have no idea what they’re using.

When asked about Fox’s claim that they contacted her by email, Shock said she searched her emails and found nothing, adding that “I never got an email or phone call from them.”

Fox has since modified their promotional materials for Palin’s show, saying it is “hosted” by the former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate and claiming the network never suggested she would actually interview the guests.

However, an earlier press release sent out by Fox News claimed Keith, LL Cool J and former GE chairman Jack Welch “will speek to Palin for her inaugural episode “Real American Stories” on April 1.

April 1, of course, is also known as “April Fool’s Day.”

    “A real American phony”————–You have named her right! But I am at a lost to why thousand Americans have become “disciples” of this “phony”. Could a comparison be made to the followers of Jim Jones?

    Maybe she’d have more smarts if she had bigger hands. :lol:

    Ha Ha, funny Bill! I remained completely baffled how so many can actually see anything of us out of this bimbo. She is pretty, she may be a good mother and wife. But she is not, absolutley not a good off the cuff spokesman, or politician. She would not run anything, she would be ran by others.

    I’m glad you said she MAY be a good mother and wife, Mighty. And I am no mighty defender of the environment at the cost of all else…

    But Alaska has a birth-defect rate like three times the national average. HUH??? That should be the most unspoiled land in all the U.S!!!

    Bus should anyone in Sarah’s employ even dare to suggest that the exploiters of Alaska’s natural resouses have the good human decency to clean up after themselves, such a one is on the way OUT!

    Ok, so maybe I speak a lie.

    The birth rate in Alaska does not.

    This “mother” ought not to be trusted to have any maternal instincts where our country is concerned.

    She couldn’t run a welfare state propped up by the lower 48, couldn’t ever take her seriously as a candidate. Couldn’t watch this show, mostly because I don’t have cable television. :)

    One of the most obviously painful thing about Sarah Palin is her voice, you know repubs could use it as a torturing tool instead of loud music if played to gitmos, believe they would go nuts in a week…!
