Viewers watching PBS’s broadcast of Tina Fey’s acceptance speech for the Mark Twain prize may not have seen her full comments, reports New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.
According to the blog, viewers didn’t get to hear her make some additional comments about Sarah Palin, beyond her thanking Palin for her "partial resemblance and crazy voice." What the show cut out was Fey’s comments saying that the success of Sarah Palin and "women like her is good for all women — except, of course — those who will end up, you like, like, paying for their own rape kit ‘n’ stuff," the story notes. "Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years – whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know – actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster."
PBS said it had to edit out some portions of the awards ceremony because it ran 19 minutes too long, the article notes.
