Sarah Palin Tells Sean Hannity What Newspapers She Reads
Over a year after she infamously stalled on Katie Couric's question about what news sources she reads, Sarah Palin has told Sean Hannity what's in her media diet.
"She asked about what I read, and I read," Palin told Hannity in an interview to air Wednesday night on Fox News. "I read Newsmax and the Frontiersman and Wall Street Journal and everything online. I absorb the news via many, many sources."
Newsmax is a conservative news website, while the Frontiersman is the local Wasilla, Alaska newspaper.
In one of the more memorable moments of the 2008 campaign, Palin did not name a single publication when Couric asked, "What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?"
Palin has said that she was offended by Couric's question because it implied that Alaskans couldn't stay informed like people in the lower 48 states.
In her interview with Oprah, Palin said the question annoyed her.
"I was already so annoyed, and it was very unprofessional of me to wear that annoyance on my sleeve," she told Oprah. "To me it was in the context of, 'Do you read? How do you stay informed? You're way up there!' It seemed like she was discovering a nomadic tribe."
Palin also told Hannity that she believes the Fort Hood massacre was an act of terrorism and that Major Nidal Malik Hasan should have been "profiled."
She also spoke out about David Letterman, saying she wouldn't go on his show and give him that "ratings boost." She described President Obama as "very charismatic, quite articulate" and "very, very talented as a politician," but said she would "not hesitate to say that his associates have been extremely radical."
The interview airs on Fox News' "Hannity" at 9PM Wednesday.
