Palin Joins the "Lamestream" Media; What Do SarahPAC Fans think?

Not on FAUXNews, CBN, but the "liberal" NBC.

What is she up to?


How can she do this with straight face after she tells the SarahPAC fans to never trust the main stream, or should I say "lamestream" media.

Did she do this, because she is thinking about her own career, (which will NOT be in politics) and wishes to broaden her audience.

She has realized having Greta van Sustern following her with camera as a personal viedographer will not help, os sitting on FOX & Friends in orgy of Obama bashing, however appealing to her it may be, might not do squat for career, which will NOT be in politics, but entertainment.

Sarah Palin joins “lamestream media” at ‘Today’; going head-to-head with Katie Couric



By Lisa de Moraes

Sarah Palin joined the “lamestream media” for one hour at 8 o’clock as “guest host” of “Today,” rivalling the week-long hosting stint of Katie Couric at “Good Morning America.”


Thus far, she opened the show under a pile of newspapers, told Matt Lauer any candidate would be better than Obama and said no matter who is the GOP nominee, they would be “clobbered” by the “lamestream media.” Follow along with her hosting gig, here:


9 a.m.: “We’re enjoying the last couple of minutes with guest host Governor Sarah Palin,” Matt says. “So how have you enjoyed being part of the lamestream media?”
“Orchestrated chaos,” she responds, dodging the question. “If everything is under control, you’re going too slow,” she added, saying “it’s been a great morning.”



Matt points out she was going to wear a different outfit than the all-black pants and shirt outfit she’s worn all hour.
“I didn’t want to go all Johnny Cash on you,” Palin said, but explained she discovered at the last minute that the “pink jacket from the consignment shop” she had planned to wear was the same one she’d worn four years ago when Matt interviewed her.
The “Today” gang standing with her outside agree she looks fabulous.





“Thank you – you guys are awesome!” she said, shaking everyone’s hand.

8:40:
Ann, Palin and some experts talk about teenage girls. The problem is, there’s too much focus on reality TV stars, they decide.
Psychiatrist Dr. Janet Taylor says teenage girls need to be taught the ratio of success to expectations.
Palin wants the marketplace to somehow make the American viewer want to see reality TV series that are the antithesis of the current crop of reality docusoaps. (Palin’s daughter is going to star in a reality docu-soap).



Fathers play an important role in how girls feel about themselves, says Dr. Taylor. Girls learn most from what they see at home and we place too much emphasis on the power of television, not the power of the home.
Palin says there’s a fine line between a parent wanting to be their children’s friend and wanting to be a parent. Kids inherently want boundaries she adds.
Ann has to work hard to cut them off to throw to commercial.




8:30: Tori Spelling, avid crafter and pregnant with fourth child, comes to talk about appetizers, etc. Ann Curry is doing the interviewing with Palin at Tori’s other side.
“How do you have the time to do it Tori?” Palin asks. Palin notes she usually does pot luck parties at her house.


8:18: On Ashton Kutcher cast to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in a new flick: “Do any of you have experience of people being paid a lot of money to pretend they’re you,” Palin asks the other panelists, deftly changing the subject to — Palin! She boasts, again, that she has not seen HBO’s “Game Change” in which she was portrayed by Julianna Moore, because “I don’t want to waste my time on…lies.”
“But Tina Fey has been pretty clever,” Palin adds, in re Fey’s portrayal of Palin on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”





8:17: On the new Facebook app that lets people list their enemies and see who shares their enemies. “It’s all about tearing people down,” Palin says. “I don’t see anything positive about this.”
Negativity is what politics is all about, counters Donny.
“It’s not just political. Look at the Bill Maher’s of the world,” Palin counters. “And when there is an app to…demean somebody and take them down it adds more darkness to our world.”





8:16: On Jessica Simpson and her pregnancy weight gain and media criticism thereof. Donny asks her how she’d feel in the same boat. “I would have wanted to punch them in the neck. It’s not anybody’s business….Hollywood image is full of itty bitty people, unrealistically tiny, I think.”
“Once you go on the cover [of magazines] it’s everybody’s business,” Donny counters.


8:15: Palin joins Star Jones, Donny Deutsch and Dr. Nancy Sniderman to discuss this and that — but not as host. She’s one of the panelists. Is this right?
They talk about Oprah Winfrey’s appearance on “CBS This Morning” Monday in which she said she would have done Own differently, or maybe not at all, had she known back then what she knows now.



“More power to Oprah,” Palin said of the woman who was one of President Obama’s biggest supporters when he ran for president and who also said on “CBS This Morning” she supports his re-election and loves him.
“She’s showing the guts and grit it takes to succeed. She’s representing what makes America great. You have the opportunity to succeed and fail and try again and that’s what she represents.”




8:02: Palin, outside Rockefeller Center with the “Today” gang,” says she’s not nervous. “I’m very excited to be here with all you New Yorkers and all you tourists” she tells the roaring crowd.
“Today” weatherman Al Roker points out she is not wearing a coat in the windy weather. Nor is he. Matt and Ann Curry are coated — wimps.


Lauer points out Palin used to be a sportscaster so this is like getting back on a bicycle. Wait — did he just say “falling off a bike?”
Palin tells viewers she’ll be talking about whether schools “and government” should be able to tell high school students what kind of prom dress they can wear to the school prom.

Err, um, let's see...

Uh... yes.

Besides, morning TV isn't so partisan, especially on the networks. Plus on cable news then, MSNBC has the bi-partisan Morning Joe, and CNN has the MILF in my present avatar.

And Sarah is strictly West Coast (AK is 4 hours earlier, even her 2nd home in AZ 2 hours) so she ain't gettin' up that early all the time, 2B ready to appear @ 7 or even 8 AM Eastern Time.

Anyhow, may the Hockey Mom sing:

This just proves how lame she and The Today show are.

What kills me is how her stallwarts all call her Governor Palin. Should be former Half-Term Governor Palin.

She's getting better ratings than Katie Couric, you have to love that.

I just watched Game Change over the weekend, so anything about Sarah Palin seems so surreal to me. Everyone should check it out! Julianne Moore was phenomenal!

I just finished shooting a Revlon ad with Susan Sarandon and Julianne Moore entitled, "Legends." I kept looking around trying to find someone else to merit that being plural.
