Back to Jezebel (you can watch the video there, I don’t have the stomach for it):
In Ziegler’s new documentary How Obama Got Elected, clips of which just went up online, the “Mama Grizzly” bitches and moans about everything from her disastrous interview with Katie Couric to Tina Fey’s portrayal of her on SNL. Palin believes that she is still subject to unfair press coverage, and asks “Is it political? Is it sexism? What is it that drives someone to believe the worst and perpetuate the worst in terms of gossip and lies?”
Palin also says that Tina Fey and Katie Couric have been “exploiting” her and “capitalizing” on her fame.
Palin goes on to blame even the (air quotes) mainstream media in Alaska for unfair treatment of her. She trumpets her status as a reformer, but blames the media for being too fickle and turning on her “the minute that is, that I have done something, that is, you know, back to the conservative roots… that’s when even the mainstream media in Alaska, they turn on ya. There’s so much hypocrisy in it all.” […] “Had I been chosen perhaps to run as a reformer on the Democrat ticket, we would have seen an absolutely different, and I think, if you will, a much prettier profile of Sarah Palin and the Palin family.”
(CNN) […] Palin also faulted the McCain campaign for agreeing to a series of sit-downs with Couric after the first one appeared to go so poorly.
“I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that,” she said. “And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more…going back for more was not a wise decision either.”
During one of those follow-up interviews, Palin took heat for appearing to be unable to name the newspapers or magazines she reads: “Um of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years,” was the Alaska governor’s response.
In the interview with Ziegler, Palin called that answer “too flippant” and suggested the question itself offended her.
“To me the question was more along the lines of, ‘Do you read, what do you guys do up there, what is it that you read?’”
“…Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe,” Palin added off-handedly.
Palin, who has long criticized media coverage of her campaign performance, also said she is interested to see if reporters are equally tough on Caroline Kennedy as she pursues the appointment to the likely-vacant Senate seat in New York.
“I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled, and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” she said.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here, also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be,” she also said.
