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.

    What an idiot! How can you even bring up that Asshole John “Flip Flop Disgrace to our Country’s Armed Forces” Kerry? And YES we did go to Iraq to help people you asshole!

    With her show being a private enterprise, Oprah has every right to pick whomever she wants to be on the show and also who she won’t allow on. But stopping right there misses the point that Oprah is a complete hypocrite with her statement that Obama hasn’t been on since before he declared.
    SHE INVITED HIM TO DECLARE ON HER SHOW AN HE DECLINED. Now all of a sudden she’s against showcasing candidates? Ridiculous.

    Also – Oprah is risking actually helping McCain/Palin by alienating her own open-minded viewers who would like a chance to judge for themselves from a Palin appearance on her show. Look at the comments section on her website, they are 90% anti-Oprah.

    Just as Oprah is free to tell Palin to take a hike, her viewers are free to tell her she’s a hypocritical ‘feminist’ who doesn’t practice what she preaches.

  7. ummm...yeah

    First of all Oprah hates black people, being one herself go figure…she has nothing but white people on her show and she never interviews blacks if she can help it.
    Fuck Oprah and and her whore mother who bore her…
    Who the fuck cares about that nigger bitch and what she thinks?

    God made us all, think about it ‘Mr. or Ms Big Bang theory, its ovious that you have some unresolved interpersonal relationship problems. You may want to start out by getting you a bible and reading matthew 8:28, and also (read it) John:10:10..

    I am continuing to pray for you

    I am sitting here reading all of these comments and they are ridiculous…First of all, we know by these comments that racism still exist big time in America. Why is it such a big issue that she does not want to interview Palin at this particular time in the campaign…….whether you think it’s racist are not, it’s her show and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Don’t be mad because she is the richest woman in America and she just happens to be BLACK! Let’s not forget, you Obama/Oprah haters……I know all of you have watched her show sometime or another, please ask yourself, or let me candidly jog your memory….there are more WHITE women who sits in her audience then there are black women – but you say she is a racist. Let’s be honest, most of her “sheep” as someone stated earlier, are white women. Coodos to #131……It’s all about FEAR of the unknown. The majority of the people on this website are probably low to middle class Americans who Republicans don’t give a damn about, but you still want to support them because they are considered “white America”. If you want gas prices to remain high, and the economy to remain in a recession…damn near about to go into a depression then vote for McCain/Palin and see where you are in 4 years, problably broke and homeless, because nothing will change. YES, Palin has made history just as, Hillary Clinton did as well….but voting for her just because she is a working woman does not mean she can run the country – let’s be real! And for those of you who want to use the “N” word on here…..spell it correctly, don’t replace letters, and be real about who you are and post your real name. You all must lead miserable little lives and are not of any importance to anyone if you have to come on here and degrade someone that you don’t even know. GO OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. You Make Me SIck

    Awww, you poor racists are sooooo jealous Oprah went from being dirt poor to a billionaire. Don’t hate so much, it’s bad for your skin. Go Obama. Interestingly enough it probably would be to Oprah’s advantage to vote for McCain since she is probably wealthier than he is and he’s all for giving tax breaks to the rich, but she’s smarter than that and willing to have her taxes raised so the majority (the non rich for the slow ones) can benefit. I have a low tolerance for ignorance and you people are pissing me off. Think BEFORE you type this irrelevant, racist, hick sounding GARBAGE! No wonder people in other countries hate Americans. Why should they like us if we refuse to like each other?

    I am Black but a decent one? What idiot would believe this came from a Black person. I do not like Oprah”s show and I am Black but it’s like everything else it’s her’s and she has the right to do what she wants. Would you invite Obama to your house, since it is your’s, other than to do the dishes or mow the yard? Racism is the root of the very destruction of this country. It is coming apart at the seams, should I say, racist hiding behind the internet to post hate mail. If you look in the dictionary, a racist is a person in a superior position (ruling class) that uses their position to discriminate against someone of a perceived lower class. It is no mistake that Palin is from a state that has virtually no Blacks, and I won a bet on the RepubliKlans choosing a woman because of the hate Hillary projected during her campaign. Hillary turned the election into men hate women movement. All in an attempt that Obama loses by such a margin that she would be guaranteed nomination for the next election.

    Fuck Oprah. Just another worthless, slovenly, fat-ass akin to Micheal Moore and Dr. Phil. Make no mistake – these people are enemies of America. They fear the real populace – and they are cowards. They are shit. They are nothing more than maggots in the feces of degeneration.

    They exist only as useful idiots of the left.

  13. jesus

    oprah has been making fools (and millions) out of white women for decades. then she turned on them and chose oblamer over billary. HA HA HA

    yet the angry white women still fill her audience like the dumb kunts they are.

    Oprah’s ego is so monumental, I can’t believe she has room for anyone else on her show. Her magazine has been on the stands for a few years now and she is the only person who’s ever appeared on the cover; I predict that that the day will come when Oprah will cast all pretense aside and interview herself on her show every day.

  15. daguuch

    Oprah did not have Palin on her show because she said she would not allow any of the canidates to use her show as a political forum. No running politician has appeared on her show. And besides its the Oprah show. She can have whoever the hell she wants.

  16. daguuch

    Obama was on Oprha before he was the nominee check ur facts racist. and saying racial slurs dont bother people as much as u might think with the hehehes that s#$^ is retro. Yeah dont vote for Obama… cause Bush has done wonders for the country. I would be offended being white on account of him! just kiddin. Hi Haters!

    This is a stupid conversation.

    Oprah stated early on her show would not interview the candidates – any of them.

    Two: Who gives a crap? Oprah is just another Hollywood freak drunk on Obamaide.

    C: I hated Oprah way before her love of Obama.

    4: WHO CARES???

  18. No one ever said she was fair. She is clearly only for Obama because he is black. She never once came out for Hillary. For more discussion of his campaign: http://www.niggermania.com
