Palin: Don't Expect Another Interview with Katie Couric

Monday, 22 Nov 2010 07:13 PM

Sarah Palin says she isn’t planning any more interviews with CBS anchor Katie Couric. In a wide-ranging interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Palin says she doesn’t believe that Couric can be trusted to do a neutral interview, according to Politico. And while she often laments against the “lame street media,” Palin isn’t dodging reporters. She recently sat down with The New York Times Magazine for a lengthy cover story Sunday.

Couric’s September 2008 interview with Palin was one of the few that the then-Alaska governor did with national press ahead of Election Day — and Palin’s responses to questions about foreign policy and her readiness to serve were problematic for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign.

Palin told Hannity she wants to “help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism,” in part by being selective in whom she’ll speak to.

“I have a communications degree. I studied journalism, who, what, where, when and why of reporting,” Palin added. "I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us.”

But that means Palin won’t be sitting down with “biased” reporter.

“So a journalist, a reporter who is so biased and will, no doubt, spin and gin up whatever it is that I have to say to create controversy, I swear to you, I will not my waste my time with her. Or him.”
