Sarah Palin Explains Her Decision Not to Run, And Katie Couric Reflects On Her Interview

Former Vice Presidential nominee and Fox News contributor Sarah Palin appeared on “On the Record” last night to explain her decision not to run for the GOP nomination in 2012:


In addition, given the news, it was no surprise that Palin would come up during a conversation with Katie Couric at The Atlantic Ideas Forum. Couric was anchor of the “CBS Evening News” at the time, and has since left to join ABC, where she contributes to ABC News, and is preparing to launch a daytime talk show next year.

Our sister blog FishbowlDC has Couric’s comments:

Couric reasoned at that point Palin hadn’t done much press. “Charles Gibson got to go to Wasilla,” she said. “I was terribly jealous.” FNC’s Sean Hannity snagged the second interview and Couric the third. “When I asked the question about what do you read, I was curious. It was just kind of a spontaneous question. I thought, gee I’m interested. She has such strong political views. Her ideology is so [dramatic pregnant pause] specific. I wanted to know what she read on a regular basis that helped shape her world view.”
