Sarah Palin’s FOX News career was set to start with a bang:
Sarah Palin’s media domination continues this week with the debut Thursday of “Real American Stories,” a new series on Fox News hosted by the former Alaska governor about people with “real-life tales of overcoming adversity…”
The premiere episode also boasts an eclectic trio of celebrity guests. Country music star Toby Keith will discuss his song “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American),” while rapper LL Cool J and former General Electric Chief Executive Jack Welch will discuss their professional successes in a segment called “In Their Own Words.”
Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW
At first I thought Mr. Smith simply was objecting to use of stock footage to promote his upcoming appearance, but visiting his Twitter feed showed that he was responding to any and all mentions of his appearance with a link back to the tweet, making me think that the G.O.A.T. really was denying such an appearance. So I tracked down the FOX promo in question, and something struck me:
The promo never says that Palin interviews Keith, Welch, or Uncle L – never even says she “profiles” them. Unless I miss my guess, “Real American Stories” (or at least the segment involving these famous people) is going to consist entirely of previously existing footage, cut together with America’s sweetheart giving folksy interstitials in front of a bluescreen. It’s extremely lazy television, and happens all the time – just not usually with this much fanfare.

WATCH: Trump reveals how he can manipulate Democrats to help him put Ted Cruz on the Supreme Court
President Donald Trump spoke about his plans for the Supreme Court during a Friday night campaign rally in Bemidji, Minnesota.
Trump took the stage before news was announced that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died and appeared to not know of the Supreme Court vacancy.
Trump explained to his audience why he had put Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on his shortlist for a Supreme Court nomination.
“I said, you know, I have to have someone that we’re going sure we get approved and the only one I could think of is Ted, because he’s going to get 50 Republican votes and he’s going to get 50 Democrat votes — they’ll do anything to get him out of the Senate," Trump said.
