McCain, Palin grant first interviews

Fox News, 'Tonight Show' nab sit downs

John McCain and Sarah Palin have slated their first post-election television interviews.

Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren snared Palin’s much-sought-after first sitdown. Van Susteren headed to Alaska this weekend for an interview that will air today on 10 p.m. interview program “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren.”

McCain will visit NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Tuesday, which is Veterans Day and also one week to the day after his loss to Democrat Barack Obama.

McCain has been a frequent guest of Leno’s, before and during his run for the presidency on the GOP ticket.

Palin’s interview is likely to draw big numbers, as the Republican veep candidate has been dogged the past few days by rumors about her behavior and intellectual shortcomings coming from McCain campaign staffers.

Palin, in remarks made Friday after returning to the governor’s office in Anchorage, has vehemently denied the allegations of profligate spending on clothes, among other criticisms, and blasted as “jerks” those staffers who spoke anonymously to media outlets.

Among the many reports that have surfaced since the election was decided on Tuesday, Fox News got a lot of attention earlier this week when correspondent Carl Cameron reported that campaign staffers had told him that Palin thought that Africa was a country rather than a continent.
