Possible GOP presidential nominee warns she will ‘clean up’ journalism
Sarah Palin is vowing — in a FOX interview that aired yesterday — to “clean up” journalism, and says she will not speak to CBS’s Katie Couric again, calling her “biased” and won’t “waste my time [with speaking with Couric],” Domenico Montanaro writes at MSNBC.
Palin said of journalism:
I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism, who, what, where, when, and why of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us.
[Editor’s Note: Maybe we at VTshould call Palin for an interview on veterans issues, in hopes of gaining her insights into who starts wars and then trashes the veterans who serve and fight.]
Couric conducted the interview in 2008 in which Palin tried to defend her foreign policy credentials. Of Russian President Vladimir Putin, she said, “It’s very important, when you consider even national security issues with Russia, as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border.”
