According to Harpo Productions: Sarah Palin to Appear on Oprah

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Harpo Productions and the Chicago Tribune reported today that Governor Palin will appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show on November 16th.

In a world exclusive, Oprah Winfrey will interview former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show to air Monday, November 16, 2009. Winfrey and Palin will meet for the very first time on the episode, which will mark Palin’s first interview to discuss her upcoming book, Going Rogue: An American Life and her first-ever appearance on the Oprah show.

Read the full announcement here.

Keep in mind that confirmation from Palin's spokesperson, Meghan Stapleton, is needed before anything is considered official.

If Sarah does make an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, it will certainly drive Oprah's declining ratings through the roof. I will commend Sarah for going on the show on her own terms, and personally, I will be glad that the governor's book sales are already out of this world.

I don't know how I feel about this yet. Oprah declined to have her on before the elections, afraid it might boost Sarah's ratings, but now to boost her own she decides it's ok? I'm not so sure Sarah should go on Oprah. She will do fine without her.

Adrienne, I have read all the varying responses to Palin’s scheduled interview with Oprah (at C4P) and while I understand some supporters reasons for wishing Palin had refused the interview, I think it’s a good idea. Off-late, whenever I visit C4P and I read the POSTS by yourself and the other contributors, I feel a little sad; mostly because with the kind of well written, well researched pieces you guys post, they deserve to be posted or circulated on wider platforms where people who don’t know the real Palin can get to read, know and understand the reasons why some of us love and admire her so much. Most of the people who come to your blog and to C4P are already supporters, so it’s like preaching to the choir. Why not send some of these top-notch posts to some of these main stream papers/media that have a wider platform, and readers who mostly are totally ignorant about Palin?

As an outsider looking in, this point of view (of reaching a wider audience/platform) became more apparent to me when it was announced that the release of Palin’s book had been moved up to 17th Nov. Of course, not wanting to be left out, I asked a medical doctor friend of mine, who until a year ago lived in Boston, to pre-order one for me. I may be wrong but the series of interactions I had with her (published below) clearly told me that for supporters to sell Sarah, there is a need to go outside the ‘comfort zones’ to reach wider audiences.

As can be seen below, from my friend’s responses it’s clear she doesn’t ‘get’ Sarah because she doesn’t ‘know’ Sarah. I found her last response that Joe Biden even champions women’s rights more than Palin, so ridiculous that I just changed the topic after that although I think I may have muddied the waters a bit with the feminist issue. Her knowledge of Sarah is clearly based on what distorted articles she had read from the MSM. And her thinking is no different from my other friends and family who are permanently based in the US.

In a nutshell, that’s why I think Palin made the right decision to go on Oprah. A lot of supporters are making almost paranoid statements about traps and all that, but I know that Palin can completely hold her own. After all the positive and impressive op-eds and statements she has unleashed since August 2009, I just don’t understand why some supporters still have doubts about the person they claim to support. She is a woman of great faith, and I have no doubt she will do just fine. She asked us to TRUST her, and I do.

I will send my e-mail interactions in a second post.

I'm sure you'll be checking this: Go play. And get some help for the victimhood mentality. You do the people you seek to defend no service whatsoever. In fact, you make them look frail, anemic, and downright pathetic--and we deserve better.
