Sarah Palin Talks Hard Choices, Political Talk Show with The Hollywood Reporter

OrVIIAlaThe Hollywood Reporter’s Marisa Guthrie this morning published a Q&A with Sarah Palin after the Sportsman Channel ordered a second season of her namesake show “Amazing America with Sarah Palin.”

The former Vice Presidential candidate answered questions about the series, which explores “what makes America amazing,” as well as some questions more focused ‘inside the Beltway.’

On whether she’d ever host her own television, radio, or Internet political talk show, Palin didn’t object.

“Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous!” She went on to add, “It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for.” Read more

Sunday Show Notes

• Conflicts between the White House and Fox News remained a topic of discussion on the Sunday shows this weekend. This is after White House communications director Anita Dunn appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” last week and said of Fox, “Let’s not pretend they’re a news network…”

On “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” senior advisor David Axelrod said of Fox News, “It’s not really news. It’s pushing a point of view. The bigger thing is that, other news organizations, like yours, ought not treat them that way… We’re going to appear on their shows, we’re going to participate. But understanding that they represent a point of view.”

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with John King and said, “While it’s clear what the white house and what Anita said, the concentration of the white house isn’t about what Fox is doing.”

On FOX News Sunday former adviser to President Bush Karl Rove said, “This is a White House engaging in its own version of the media enemies list. And it’s unhelpful for the country and undignified for the president of the United States to so do.” (h/t TVNewser)

And B&C‘s Marisa Guthrie weighed in on Howard Kurtz‘s show on CNN: “Fox News doesn’t thrive on access from the administration. They’re the opposition. They thrive on agitation.”

Related– NYT‘s David Carr: The Battle Between the White House and Fox News and AP’s David Bauder: Picking a fight: Obama vs Fox News.

• That was CBS political analyst John Dickerson filling in for Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation.”

• In MTP’s “Take Two” on the web, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Maria Shriver, John Podesta and David Gregory discuss the impact of Gloria Steinem– this convo ties into NBC’s reporting on “A Women’s Nation.” Shriver also addressed her recent apology for being caught talking on her phone while behind the wheel.

• And does MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow belong on “MTP”? Someone certainly thinks so…

What we know and what we’re reading this Wednesday morning…

NEWPAPERS

In WaPo’s online chats yesterday, Gene Weingarten was asked about pre-empted column printed in Sunday’s paper. He calls the editor’s note a mistake, but a well-intentioned one, and a “dismaying overabundance of caution.” He was also posed this question, “Weingarten, you magnificent bastard, you engineered that whole promotion for your Sunday column, didn’t you?” He answered that the column did get 400 percent more online readership than it ususally does.

Heart Corp. announced yesterday possible significant cuts to staff at the San Francisco Chronicle.

Why everyone should care about the future of newspapers, from Paul Starr at the New Republic.

It is the end of an era for gossip columnist Liz Smith. After 33 years, the NYPost will be dropping her column.

TV

Liberal bias? A study at Indiana University indicates the opposite of what most people would think about television coverage of Democrats and Republicans during elections. The three major broadcast networks favored Republicans in elections from 1992 to 2004 and the professor conducting the study says that effect was largely due to journalists censoring their own reporting out of frustration at being accused of a liberal bias.

Broadcasting & Cable’s Marisa Guthrie has Q&A with NBC’s Brian Williams. Among many questions, she asks whether the Obama team has been successful in handling the media since they’re been in Washington? “I get a kick out of the coverage. I heard it as recently as last night on cable: ‘Have they lost their way?’ Now, we might want to remind everybody that the first few weeks of the Bush Administration were no different. It’s our attention span these days. It’s laughable.”

ONLINE

Rachel Sklar at the Daily Beast has the “smart power” list- what she calls “a subtle combination of brains and the wisdom to use them to get things done.” All the rage in Washington. DC journo NBC’s David Gregory makes the cut. Other journso on the list include CBS’ Katie Couric and CNN’s Rick Sanchez. NYT online, the Atlantic online and Politico also get a nod.

NEWS NOTES

Best Actor Sean Penn is in talks to star in “Fair Game,” the story of Valerie Plame, according to E! News. Naomi Watts is already lined up to play Plame.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, KY has Q&A of WaPo’s and MSNBC contributor Eugene Robinson. He talks about the stimulus, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and the difference between his column and cable news, to which he says, “What cable does, increasingly, is blur the line between reporting- which if done at all properly is going to be fair and nonpartisan- and commentary. And in the medium of cable television, that blurring seems to work. I say that only because it leads me to the conclusion that we’re going to see more of it.”

JOBS

News Distribution Network, Inc. is looking for an account manager. From the release: NDN has developed a unique business model to address the challenges of news properties, ownership groups, and organizations not currently equipped with legal, professional video content, advanced multimedia features, or effective distribution. NDN has debuted “Political I.Q.,” the first product in a portfolio slated to include offerings in the business, entertainment, sports, travel and general news categories.” More info and application available here.
