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.

    @47 – Your mom does not think it is too tiny. She is sucking mine right now.

    I respect Oprah’s decision to support Obama, that’s her personal choice. However, she has had Obama on her show and provided the platform for him to speak to the largely female audience of her show. Yet she refuses to have Palin on? Oprah I would have expected you to at least show some unbias on your show and provide equal air time. This latest action just solidifies my previous notion that you only care to showcase individuals that help to further your own personal liberal causes and viewpoints. And of course with this being your show, you can certainly do that.

    But know this, you have turned off a great many conservative female viewers by refusing to have Palin on. In addition, it makes you irrelevant.

    It’s obvious you are scared of Palin and what she stands for. Shame on you Oprah! I will no longer be tuning into your show.

    racist nigger bitch

    Are you all really that stupid. If Palin wrote a book 2yrs ago worth reading maybe she would have been on her show. Dumb@sses that was what Obama was on the show for. She does promote reading try it. He has not been on her show since entering the Presidential election and will not be. You fart head republicans are always twisting sh!t. Oprah doesn’t have to answer to your ignorant @sses.Your foolishness is why Obama/Biden will make it to the whitehouse.

  5. She's a HIPPO CRITE

    You Oprah loving fucks – we know it’s her show, we know she’s successful and we know Palin won’t get on. It’s just the Hypocrisy that is numbing. Look hard I know you can see it…..Oh and #18 Nor Cal……you scare me.

  6. Alicia

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Check out the crackers bustin out cryin! Can’t deal with the powerful black woman. Boo-hoo boo-hoo it’s not fair boo-hoo!!!

    LMAO!

  7. cyelsm

    Oprah is a billionaire and you ingrates are minimum wage tards. Please don’t hate her success. As a matter of fact you are the dumb@sses that made her so rich. Irony is a b!tch.

  8. Pat

    Good point – she was, in fact, discussing one of Obama’s books.

    If Palin writes a book, maybe she’ll can discuss it on the show.

    Wait, no…Palin only tries to BAN books (as mayor of Wasilla).

    Of course, that’s only when she gets the time for that – you know, when she’s sufficiently stolen her daughters’ childhoods by making them take care of the younger kids. No wonder the 17-year-old rebelled. (it’s a conservative family, folks, forget about “dad can take care of the baby” – he’s a champion snowmobile racer in his free time – no joke – how do you do that with 2 working parents and 5 kids? – so obviously he’s one of those too-familiar never-grown-up boys, not a mature father)

  9. obammy

    If Palin was a pork chop then the Big O would have her right away

  10. havoc

    Two words.

    Dr. Phil.

    Oprah’s full of shit.

    .

  11. She's a HIPPO CRITE

    Pat – Get your head out of your ass! Honestly, as a liberal dem your gonna lecture us about having a father in the house? The shit just gets deeper and deeper with you fools. The Dems should have just rolled to victory…most of us conservatives had just assumed this election cycle was a loss….but you morons are actually gonna blow a sure thing…..I can’t stop laughing.

  12. Dr. Phil

    No, Oprah’s full on money.

    And you are not.

  13. Bemused

    Why would anyone assume Sarah Palin wants to be on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’? She probably thinks Ms. Winfrey is a self-infatuated TV gasbag, and would rather spend her time wiping the floor with Joseph Biden.

  14. Actual news

    The unemployment rate just jumped to 6.1%, and the forecast is for continued increases through at least the beginning of next year.

    There will be only one issue at the polls this fall. It’s simply the wrong year to be following this Republican president.

    I know everybody here is really really really smart…but it’s time to realize, if you haven’t already, that the “horse race” mentality is for entertainment purposes only, to generate excitement in a race that’s already decided. Barring any monumental collapse by Obama, he’s the next president, just as Clinton followed the first Bush. Palin is irrelevant (all VP choices are, as Dan Quayle showed), but she’s definitely a gift to the 24-hour cable news shows, and they certainly seem appreciative.

  15. cyelsm

    After over 20yrs she still has a talk show, production company, magazine, school for under privledged girls, billions of dollars and you have…….. a doublewide parked in a trailer park. Boy I see why you all hate her so. She’s better then you.

  16. CJ

    So what? Oprah is just one woman…and regardless the amount of sunshine blown up her azz by azzkissers…she still inserts that tampon one at a time (or one leg at a time into her bladder pad) just like any other woman. Big whoooooooop!

    She’s in menopause asshole!

  18. She's a HIPPO CRITE

    Hey Actual News…….If you really believe everything has already been decided before its really been decided then you are “actually” an idiot. Just sit back and watch this thing unfold….it’s gonna be priceless when Obama loses

  19. Mike Sandleburg

    There’s already a petition and website up about this.

    http://getsarahpalinonoprah.com

    I urge everyone to sign it, Oprah needs to know the way we feel.

  20. Jaime

    Oh it’s been decided all right. Two-term presidents who leave the country in an economic recession/depression always give way to the opposition party. The only exceptions are when a war is begun at the end of the term, and of course if the opposition candidate gets mired in an extreme scandal. Palin’s the only one who’s got potential scandals going on, and Iraq has quieted down quite a bit, at least from the perspective of the American public. Meanwhile, economically things are getting worse not better, with no end in sight. Inflation and unemployment are both going up, together referred to as the “Misery Index”. That combo makes ordinary citizens acutely aware that the economy is going badly, unlike other times when, say, huge debts are accumulating in some seemingly abstract way. A high misery index drives incumbents out of office by putting voters in the mood to blame and punish. McCain voted with the incumbent president 95% of the time, so he can’t escape the blame. The misery index is a monster. There won’t be any other issue big enough to counteract it.

  21. She's a HIPPO CRITE

    um…..no recession/depression yet..check the definition. Strengthening US dollar, oil retreating in a big way, looking good in Iraq, unemployment at 5.8 but still better than 60′s, 70′ s, 80′s and 90′s……don’t count you chickens before they’re hatched…this one is still in play baby!!! Believe me…I didn’t think it would be, but we are all gonna be up late election night! The Dems just plain picked the wrong guy…not being racist…but Hillary was the no brainer.

    ———-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.———–
    Then leave companies alone who don’t want to hire negroes. Stop bitching about tv shows with no porch monkeys. Stop complaining about people who refuse to rent to negroes. It’s their property.

  23. Danny

    Sound like she is racist.

  24. The JuRK

    I’ve hated Oprah since she made such a spectacle of herself during the whole US Meat Industry vs. Oprah court case.

    That cow lumbered out to the microphones and bellowed, “Free speech rocks!”

    Just after that, news leaked that she makes every employee sign a lifetime agreement (probably in blood) that they can never, ever say anything about working for Oprah. LIFETIME agreement.

    Yeah, Free Speech Rocks, you egomaniacal cow, for everyone who doesn’t work for you!

    I got too excited on that last one, misspelled the “punch word”, my fingers were flying. :)

    “Then leave companies alone who don’t want to hire negroes. Stop bitching about tv shows with no porch monkeys. Stop complaining about people who refuse to rent to negroes. It’s their property.”

    Wow, it’s always depressing to read what “real Americans” think the laws of the land are. “bitching about tv shows” = consumer boycott, to try to force changes by decreasing profits. Has everything to do with the wallet and nothing to do with the Constitution or any other element of the rule of law. On the other hand, access to jobs (hiring) and housing (renting) are basic aspects of life that the government tries to ensure are not subject to bias and discrimination.

    You would have thought that a grade-schooler would show understanding of this distinction. You would have thought wrong. Education in America is on an astounding decline.

  29. Jonesing

    Oprah’s a fucking bitch.

    She gives away cars on her show, but in the end, GM gave the cars away.

    It just made the richest woman in the world “appear” charitable.

  30. DISGUSTED!

    I cannot beleive how personal some of you are taking the fact that Oprah has made an executive decision about “WHEN” to have Governor Palin on her show. She didn’t say never, just not yet. The racist remarks, the degrading insults, to not only her – but also to the American people – especially blacks, is appauling. We still have a ways to go – if we ever get there. I don’t agree or disagree with Oprah, it’s her show and it’s her choice. But I do believe there will be enough coverage of Governor Palin over the next few months that any and all of you can watch! And, if any of you can recall, we – as African Americans recorded musical hits years ago and we couldn’t even be on the cover of our OWN music. So, when you talk about fair……embrace freedom of choice. We didn’t have any before and now Oprah is the HNIC of her platform!

    I can call her a nigger because I am black. Duh!!

  32. nancy

    Wait, she only let Obama on 2 times to help Hillary lose.

    When Obama loses in the fall you can blame Oprah for the democrats losing. what should have been a sure thing for the democrats. If Oprah hadn’t turned Hillary’s base, predominantly (hard working) uneducated white women, toward Obama, Hillary would have been the candidate and Palin would not being having the impact she is having.

    It is hard to say whose ego and messiah complexis bigger, Oprahs or Obamas?

  39. bootlips

    Negroes all of a sudden are for freedom of speech and actions but we can’t say nigger.

  40. ChangeWillCome

    For the record Oprah had Obama on her show before he announced his run for presidency, and also Oprah has the right to do what she wants with her show. All of you racist on here need to grow up. YES WE CAN change America! It will happen. Being racist is really outdated and lame, its time that we learn to stand together and get over all the skin color issues.

    All of you that hate you only hurting yourselves, do something more productive with your life.

    hate is a weak emotion, get over it.

    Obama will bring us together as we should have been from the beginning.

  41. Gina

    Oprah gives advice on relationships, but has a boy friend who is a
    door mat … gives advice on marriage, but has never been married …
    gives advice on child rearing, but has no children … gives advice on
    Obama, but was a member of Jeremiah Wright’s anti-American racist
    church for several years. Now, her white women’s audience, which made
    Oprah rich, wants to know more about Sarah Palin, but Oprah says NO
    !!!

  42. Rex Kramer, Danger Seeker

    NIGGER!!!!

  43. jesus

    jennifer with her 5 duplicate posts claiming to be white. only a nigger would be so stupid as to post the same thing 5 times. back to the cotton patch nigress!

  44. Bob

    In the immortal words of the wonderful DICK Cheney, Palin should go “F” herself.

  45. Haha

    only white folks are racist

  46. bootlips

    Porch monkeys talk about change. The change they talk about is turning good and safe neighborhoods into violent ghettos. All you have to do is go to one of their filthy neighborhoods to see how they change things.

  47. NamesWillNeverHurtMe

    Being a racist is so immature – None of you racist would have the balls to say any of this in the hood, you hide behind the internet. we are so scared of you. Dont be mad that a black woman has more white friends than you racist. Oprah has the right to have anybody she wants on her show.

    She doesnt have to be married, nor have children, she surrounds herself with people that are in those positions and she has the uncanny ability to give advice and guess what people listen, you wish you had that much power.

    Imagine that a black woman, trumps what any of you racist have to say on here, regardless of how pro white you want to be, you can do nothing about a powerful black woman who can have anything she wants and she has all kinds of races working for her, ha.

    keep hating and hiding, the internet is your only outlet, you dont have the courage nor the ability to be in a powerful position like this strong black woman. ha, change yourself, god still loves you.

    Oprah’s TRUE colors and beliefs finally show…. What a prejudice bitch she has become.

    Oprah’s TRUE colors and beliefs finally show…. What a pretty black woman she has become.

  50. TheScatmanReturnsFromTheGrave!!!

    Having an IQ above double digits has kept me from watching the Extra-Wide & Racist Bacon-Strip and her skidmark followers. Anyone that bases their opinion on information via Grimace From The Darkside shouldn’t be allowed to vote by reason of stupidity. Also, all this N-word, F-word and C-word shit is for the weak. The American people have the right to use what ever language they choose and those that hear it have every right to form an opinion based on the use of said words. Grow up you pussies!
