Palin’s Guest? LL Cool J Says No

Fox had promoted LL Cool J as one of the subjects featured on the debut of Sarah Palin’s “Real American Stories” on Thursday, but the performer says that Fox News is “misrepresenting” and interview he gave to someone else in 2008. “WOW,” he tweeted.

A Fox News spokesperson responds to TV Newser’s inquiry by saying that the interview is being pulled — along with a caustic response.

“Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming
adversity and we believe Mr. Smith’s interview fit that criteria.
However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated
with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are
cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his
fledgling acting career.”

    Palin consistently attacks people and things with her own special brand of tiny mindedness. Look at the backhanded and dishonest way Palin’s show disses a guest who just said no to her brand of hate.
    “…However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career.”
    Palin & Fox (a marriage made in Hell) are shameless.
