Winfrey Says There Was Never Any Talk of Having Palin on Her Show

Sep 5, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Oprah Winfrey is strongly denying a story on the Drudge Report Web site that the reigning queen of talk shows was balking at having Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on her show.
“The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue,” Ms. Winfrey said. “There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.”
The report on the popular news Web site noted, “Oprah’s staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin,” with one insider noting, “Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama.”
Sources close to the production struck back, however.
“There was never any chance of her appearing and they knew that,” said one show insider. “This is just another attempt by her party to portray her as a victim of the media. The next thing you know, the same guys who are against equal pay will be calling Oprah sexist.”
Ms. Winfrey’s staunch personal support for Democratic candidate Barack Obama and his appearance on her show last year prompted a backlash from some media outlets.
However, candidates from both parties have previously appeared on other talk shows over the course of their campaigns, ranging from other syndicated daytime fare such as “Ellen” and “Tyra Banks” to late-night shows including “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” and “The Late Show With David Letterman.”


  1. An attempt by “her party”??? This bit of news was initiated by insiders at Oprah Inc. Let’s not spin this back at the Republicans.

  2. I don’t want to be on your DAMN show either.
    There are a lot of Americans that do not want to be on your DAMN show.

  3. Oprah is blatently only interested in helping liberals gain power. I hope she loses her entire conservative and independant audience over this. Maybe she will have a bunch of cancellations of O magazine too. That’s what happened to US Weekly when they trashed Sarah.

  4. Oprah Winfrey is afraid to have Palin on her show. Once the public learns more about the Cuda, Zerobama is finished!!

  5. The story was about the people who run Oprah’s show and fans of the show wanting Sarah Palin to be on. Oprah is trying to make it look like she is being targeted for lying, but what she is saying it true: to her, there was never any question about letting this ‘threat to Obama’ be promoted on the show.

  6. Seems funny how a woman, advocating women’s responsibility,rights, and crashing that glass ceiling, only sees it as plausible if struck by a liberal hammer

  7. It’s tragic that Ms.’O’ after giving Mr.’O’ a block of time on her show. And then pulls up the welcome mat and declares Ms.’Saracudda’ is unwelcomed. Oprah Wormtongue is a fraud her left-wing bias is showing, the preachy inclusiveness she spews is a sham

  8. Oprah doesn’t like white women.
    She did the same insult to Hillary.

  9. So, now it is “Oprah NEVER even talked about having Palin on.” What a RACIST! She is out of touch. She may even announce that she doesn’t even know who Sarah Palin is!! She is doing another Clinton! Never admit anything unless you are CAUGHT! Of course, she NEVER discussed it with her staff. If anyone opens mouth, he/she would be gone. They run an asylum, just like the demonRats party. Of course, Oprah never even considered having Palin on her show, as long as none of her staff speaks up. What a stupidity! Because this woman got bucks, now shw looks down on a working woman who works hard and has lots of kids, member of NRA, and most of all, whipped sorry weasel Community Organizer Obama’s rear end BIG TIME. And, Palin will kick Community Orgazier king Obama anytime. Bring the sorry weasel on. The lady can kick his ass AND Biden’s at the same time. Oh, that hurt Opra’s big rear end also. Revenge is ALL these libs are about! These liberals can’t get out the demonrat mentality. They are grinding blades of REVENGE just to get even ONE MORE TIME. Who watches the GARBAGE she puts on anyway? I know who she can put on EVERYDAY 24/7; Obama and Biden. Libs can have NADA Obama and Joey CorruptBiden EVERYDAY, and they can eat their own liberal vomits.

  10. Oprah is a racist pure and simple. I hope she loses everything including what is left of her mind.

  11. Yep, Oprah isn’t sexist, she’s racist. She is supporting Obam because he is black, and discriminating against a white person married to an eskimo.

  12. Oprah is AFRAID to have Sarah Palin on her show because she(Oprah) is a FAR LEFT WING LIBERAL. Who is AFRAID Gov. Palin will look GOOD & come off as very LIKABLE & down to earth. And that would not be good for the liberals to have that happen on national television. After all, they can not be FAIR & BALANCED like FOX NEWS. The media is very biased. I think Shawn Hannity is right- journalism is dead in this country. These reporters and anchor people lie through their teeth and make stuff up just so they can make someone look bad and discredit them.. What ever happened to HONESTY?? The Liberals are ruining this country!!! The democrats have so many people duped into believing their line of BULL#!@%. I want to go to sleep and wake up back in the 50’s & 60’s when things were alot different. I want to puke when I look back and see how much this country has changed. There is no loyalty. There is no fairness. The democratic party is full of HATE & RAGE. And I HATE them for what they have turned this country into. The democrats cater to the special interest groups, instead of the people of this GREAT NATION. I think it’s time we take it back from them. A vote for McCain/Palin will be a great start. Then toss out all the democrats that were elected to the House & Senate because of FALSE PROMISES. ALL OF THEM NEED TO BE TOSSED OUT ON THEIR BUTTS!!! There is no reasoning with a liberal. Because LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER!!!! Thank You & GOD BLESS Liz

  13. 90+ percent of blacks are voting for Obama, yet 75% of the U.S. population is white, and for Obama to get elected, he must have Whites NOT vote in the same racist manner that blacks are… so by factual number, who are the real racits in this country? I bet if Sara was black Opra would have her on the show, but would later be called an Uncle Tom. Martin Luther King Jr. was a REPUBLICAN, as was Abe Lincoln. And I think MLK would be ashamed of Obama and Opra. Every black person that does not look into the history of the Dems and votes against the Republican is ignorantly biting the hand that freed them, made them citizens, gave them rights, hung on the same noose for doing so! Al Gore’s father voted against the civil rights act, John F. Kennedy voted against the civil rights acts, then filped to become president (say anything to get elected), and Lyndon Johnson stared the welfare system to coax minorites to sell out for a stinking check. Sell out years of oppression, hate, and murder for a stupid welfare check, and it worked! Who’s the real Uncle Tom? Had MLK been alive when L. Johnson proposed the “Great Society” i.e. welfare system, he would have said NO!!! He would have insturcted all minorities to not accept it! Maybe that is why his powerful voice was silenced? Remember it was JFK little brother Robert Kennedy that had MLK followed and wire-tapped… think about that.

  14. I think this is a racist news for reporting all these nasty remarks

  15. It’s Oprah’s show and I think she has the right to let or not let someone appear on her show.
