The New Yorker‘s Steve Coll spends a column today blasting ABC News over a variety of issues relating to Charlie Gibson‘s interview with Gov. Sarah Palin. But the overriding theme — that ABC attempted to turn the interview into an entertainment event — appears factually incorrect.Apparently the decision to air the interview in three parts wasn’t just a ratings ploy, it was ABC’s way of turning “the material as fast as we can. There’s a real overriding public interest in hearing from Gov. Palin.” Uh huh. Also, there was no collaboration between ABC and the McCain camp. Also, ABC is not happy with Coll’s column. Of course, tomorrow this could all just be conversation for the soup kitchen line-up. Stay tuned!
