During the 2008 campaign Sarah Palin’s ignorance was exposed when she could not answer basic questions related to public policy during interviews with network news anchors. Katie Couric especially deserves credit for asking follow up questions when Palin tried to avoid answering questions. Since then Palin has avoided Couric as well as the rest of the news media.
In an interview tonight, Sarah Palin states she will not do further interviews with Couric. Needles to say, this statement came in an interview on the house GOP network, Fox, conducted by Sean Hannity.
Should Palin decide to run for president in 2012 it will be interesting to see if she can get away with avoiding any legitimate news interviews. To this day she has never appeared on the major network Sunday interview shows, which tend to lean conservative but which still would not be likely to allow Palin to get away without being able to answer basic questions.
