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

Yahoo News’ Olivier Knox Offers Look at President Obama’s ‘Secret Schedule’

whitehouseWhile much – or some – of the President of the United States’ daily schedule is listed online for public consumption, his private schedule, detailing a more minute-by-minute look at Obama’s day, was the focus of a recent piece by Yahoo News’ Olivier Knox.

“It’s a document so closely held that Obama aides, like their counterparts under George W. Bush, are expected to dispose of it at day’s end in ‘burn bags’ typically reserved for documents so sensitive they cannot be consigned to mere shredding,” wrote Knox.

The private schedule is delivered in hard copy form at 7am to the desks of senior aides and includes a disclaimer showcasing the sensitivity of the document – “This schedule contains sensitive information and is provided for your information only. It may not be distributed, forwarded, or printed without the express written permission of the Director of Scheduling.”

Obamas Talk ‘Learning to Drive’ as First Daughter Malia Obama Turns 16 on July 4th

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 13.40.02America’s birthday is not the only celebration today in the nation’s capital – it’s also Malia Obama’s birthday. And for the eldest First Daughter, it’s not just any birthday, it’s her Sweet Sixteen.

The Washington Post’s Pamela Kirkland put together a video report for the occasion, which includes appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama on “The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” and “Live! with Kelly and Michael.” To host Kelly Ripa, Michelle Obama said, ”I think our agents don’t want us driving with teenagers…Especially the President’s detail, I don’t think they want him in the state when she’s learning how to drive.”

It also includes footage from an ABC News special in which President Barack Obama said, “We’re going to have to figure out the logistics of that, but I promised her, she will in fact, be able to learn how to drive.”
