She still thinks Katie Couric was the problem…
Speaking to Fox New’s Sean Hannity in an interview to air Monday, Palin said she wants nothing to do with Katie Couric, the CBS Evening News anchor who’s line of questioning facilitated one of the most memorable political foibles of the 2008 presidential campaign.
“As for doing an interview, though, with a reporter who already has such a bias against whatever it is that I would come out and say? Why waste my time? No,” Palin told Hannity of Couric, according to excerpts obtained by Time’s Mark Halperin.
“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,” Palin continued. “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.”
“Does this reporter make my ass look stupid?”
“No, your stupid ass makes your ass look stupid. And so does saying stuff like, ‘I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism.’ Also.”
