Sarah Palin accounts for the controversy she attracts by saying her opponents don't like the "commonsense, conservative solutions" she represents.
Debuting as a Fox News analyst, the 2008 vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor was the guest of Bill O'Reilly on Tuesday's edition of "The O'Reilly Factor."
During the interview, Palin said sinking approval numbers for President Barack Obama reflect "an uncomfortableness" some Americans feel toward his administration.
She told O'Reilly she hadn't seen a recent "60 Minutes" report about her, explaining she was warned it contained "a bunch of b.s."
O'Reilly invited her back any time she wants to set the record straight.
Palin's multiyear deal with the network was announced Monday.
