Oprah won’t interview Sarah Palin until after the election

September 5th, 2008 // 174 Comments

The Sarah Palin News Vortex has bagged another celebrity. And this time it’s a biggun’. Oprah Winfrey was ensnared in controversy this morning when the Drudge Report posted that the Big O, a vocal supporter of Barack Obama, is refusing to have Governor Palin on her show. Oprah fired off a statement to TMZ this afternoon denying the claims:

“The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.”

Behind closed doors, Oprah then demanded the head of Matt Drudge on a silver platter before the sun sets. And maybe some onion rings.

    Oprah won’t interview sarah pailn means mccian and palin won’t stand a chance to obama and biden (oprah surports obama)

  6. Dirk the Magnanomous

    After the election, Sarah is going to be too busy either being vice president or being governor of Alaska to waste time visiting Oprah.

    Oprah’s loss. It would have been interesting.

  7. Uh-huh,

    It’s her show. It’s like Ron Paul whining Oprah won’t have him on her show.

    Oprah is a typical liberal. She isnt about supporting blacks or noting the acheivement of women, she only wants to help people or advocate for those who have the liberal beliefs. Feminism and Civil Rights are movements to benefit liberal people not all women and all blacks. If a conservative such as Palin shows the characteristics that feminists should be proud of she is shunned by people who act hypocritically about the succees of women. Its no different then with Clarence Thomas and the black community.

    Iraq war protests and hating Bush are just covers for the hypocrisy of people like Oprah. Sometimes it just takes someone like Palin to destroy the stereotypes and show simple minded people what liberals are all about.

    Good for her. Oprah kiss my white conservative ass.

    Just shows how completely scared sh!tless and panicked the Obama cult has become. Watch her try to distance herself from Obama when he loses by the greatest margin in history.

  14. beyonce

    ok… i don’t like Sarah Palin, but Oprah is a complete asshole. That TMZ statement sounds like i came from Mingey and Gary (see South Park ” A Million Little Fibers”.)

  15. havoc

    Oprah’s full of shit.

    .

  16. truth

    It’s HER show – she’s not just the star, she’s the producer, and the show is owned by her production company. It’s broadcast on commercial TV. In America, that means you get to call all the shots. Why do supposed capitalist-free enterprise conservatives have a problem with that? Are you confused, thinking that because she’s a black women, it must be something on public television? Looks like the 93% white Republican convention is still distorting your thinking – although you couldn’t tell it from watching the TV coverage, even Republicans can’t own slaves anymore.

    Ummm, dumb question: Doesn’t the Earth need the oil? It’s there for a reason, no? Maybe to fuel the fire/magma at the Earth’s core that w/out the oil that we’re drilling at a trillion gallons a second will vaporize us in to a micro dust explosion at some point? Will the Earth’s surface be littered w/sink holes? Why are we toxically extracting this oil, toxically refining it, toxically charging an arm and a leg for it and toxically burning it in our over sized cars that an epidemically fat nation drive but needs to walk and bicycle more anyhoo? Old argument, new answers please?

  18. JimmyBachaFungool

    Fat racist pig that she is. Blacks are just as guilty of racism as the people they have been whining about all these years. Doesn’t really matter. I know SO many people that never voted before that are making sure they get out to vote for McCain and the hottie.

  19. Erica

    Why do people think she they have any say over who she has on her show?

  20. bootlips

    Neegers vote for neegers. They don’t care if it means chaos, violence, disease, poverty, and starvation. They want monkeys in charge.

  21. Spanky

    Now that the second coming has officially gotten the democratic nomination I don’t think she can have him on the show anymore without allowing McCain the same pleasure. Something about all the candidate have to be giving the same access.

    If Palin offered her a plate of ribs I bet the cow known as Oprah would let her on the show.

  22. Samantha

    She’s worth over $2.5 billion, the richest self-made woman in America. She can do whatever she wants. Clearly some people find that impossible to accept. Too bad – your opinion is irrelevant.

    You coons would be the first to cry racism if Leno had McCain on his show and not Obama. You see, little nig, it’s called fairness. A talk show host isn’t allowed to be one way. This is America, not Zimbabwe, where you monkeys can’t even run a lemonade stand.

  24. Tracy

    #17. It’s not the fact that she won’t let her on her show that irks people….and it sure doesn’t have anything to do with her color….what is so bullshit is she is trying to say she won’t let her on because she goes to the trouble of making a statement saying she won’t let any political candidates use her show as a platform when everyone knows that she just had Obama on twice! People would respect her fat ass more if she would have just come out and said I don’t want her on because I am pulling for Obama and I don’t want to hurt his chances…..You know that as well as all of us but what do you do? You go with the old democratic stand by…lets call republicans racist….do you make squishy noises when you walk? You should because your full of old bullshit.

  25. OprahsAWuss

    Way to go! Nothing like choosing a political candidate, gleefully announcing it to the world, fawning over him on the show, and then saying “my show isn’t a political platform.” Yah, if you believe that one. Hypocrite.

  26. Did anyone pass grade school civics?

    “Something about all the candidate have to be giving the same access.”

    That applies only to broadcasts paid for with public funding. So, either public broadcast stations, or blocks of airtime bought from commercial broadcast stations by publicly-funded campaigns.

    All other instances of “equal access” occur solely due to a station’s concerns that an appearance of bias will interfere with advertising revenue.

    It’s called America. Nice place. Read about it someday.

  27. oprah's time is over

    this is the end of main stream media thankfully

  28. Beyonce

    The problem is that Oprah abuses her popularity. She has influence over many weak minds and she uses her show as a political platform, which is manipulative and exploitative. She is an entertainer, not a politician…. she should stick to what she knows, which is bogus diets, her favorite things, and victim-stories.

  29. CAT

    MEOWWWWWWWW……….RHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! I smell a Cat fight coming….PSSSTTTT!

  31. The Clap

    who cares

  32. tango

    Yep, they made a mistake in that statement. “….when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates.” She forgot the word “other” before candidates in the last sentence.
    So it’s her show and she can have who she wants but it sure would’ve been nice to show all the candidates whether you support them or not because it makes for a good show and will increase the audience. But then again, having on McCain or Palin might cause some of her viewers to write her hate mail or even worse, decide to vote Republican so I can understand where she’s coming from!

  33. Sid

    Man, you people are ignorant. Bias, equal access, freedom of speech, etc. – all of that stuff applies to government-funded entities. Oprah’s the most successful *entrepreneur* on television, by far. If she listened to you racist fools, she’d be as ordinary as you are.

  34. Spanky

    @24/25 hit it right on the head. Everyone knows that Oprah is a whore and is for Obabma. But when she pulls this self-riteous bullshit it does not fly. Most of the media being so pro-Obabma to the point that it is not even close to being impartial is going ot backfire. Nobody likes it when supposedly “impartial” groups are so one-sided. Same thing happened to FoxNews when the Republicans were in power.

    Just call it for what it is. The Queen coon does not want to help the white foke at all. If Leno did the same for McCain the Obabma fanatics would be screaming racism and would probably be right.

  35. “I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates.”

    I call bullshit. How many times has Barack been on again?

    Also, that’d be definitely some onion rings. And a milkshake.

  36. john canawati

    Neegers, hahaha.

  37. FACE

    The last post is calling blacks the N word. Oprah is not obligated to have Palin on. Oprah is not news or public television. She supports Obama. She hasnt let any candidate use her show as a pltform and that s keeping it fair. Why does she have to be called n gger for that?

  38. Steph

    When all of you produce your own top-rated TV shows, you can have whoever you want as guests.

    I’m not holding my breath.

  39. FACE

    David Letterman has had McCain on his show but not Obama. Is anyone using a racial slur against him for that?

  40. JimmyBachaFungool

    I may be her show but with a decision like this she suddenly becomes irrelevant. No one will take her serious anymore (if anyone did).

    It won’t matter what she does because McCain will win.

  41. Imagination

    Wow. There are an exceptional number of viewers off their meds today.

  42. Spanky

    #38 becasue she is one and she has let Obama on several times. Even if they don’t talk politics she is still giving him exposure that she is not allowing the other party. It is not fair. It is certainly her right since it is her show just like it is anyone elses right to call her whatever they want. Let the repurcussions fall where they may.

  43. MiMi

    Well I guess Oprah is a “sista” only to her own. Does that make her a racist?

  44. Spanky

    Yes. Finally someone has gotten it. @44 hit it roighto nthe head. All coons are racist and white power rules.

  45. oprahscunt

    Oprah is a cunt. Plain and simple. A CUNT!

  46. Rick

    “It’s not fair”?????

    You’re kidding, right? There actually are white folks here complaining about unfair lack of access to a show owned by a private company?

    In all of American history, one black person – ONE – has achieved this level of clout in television, the all-powerful medium of our culture, after starting out with absolutely nothing.

    AND YOU’RE WHINING ABOUT IT.

    Those really are tiny penises.

  47. billy

    Fat fucking black label ham.

  48. Bikini Girl

    Bad Publicity for Oprah!!!… I sure hope Americans are paying attention to this. Most people say Fox News is the Republican Channel, but O’Reilly had Obama on his show – granted it’s a political/news format. Now everyone will have to swallow that it really is a fair and un-biased channel. Back to Oprah… let’s boycott her! (actually , I haven’t paid attention to her in year, because she is ridiculous).

  49. Ted from LA

    I don’t hate Oprah. I just don’t like her. I can’t stand those egomaniac shows she does where Gayle and her drive around the country seeing what kind of reaction they can get from dumb fuck Americans. Her head is bigger than most college football mascots. Obama is our next president because I am voting for him. Just like the last two elections when I voted for Presidents Kerry and Gore. Wait a minute……………………………………………..fuck.
