I guess Palin has come out of "hiding" in Alaska. According to Sarah Palin has granted her first interview to Charles Gibson and the interview will occur later this week. It appears Gibson's decision not the question McCain about Palin's personal family life during the feeding frenzy last week led to him getting the interview. Gibson interviewed McCain during the convention and never gave asked about Palin's family, although he did ask about Policy positions and experience. It looks like the interview will take place this Thursday.
I have no doubt that Palin will handle herself very well in these interviews. She is very intelligent and should have no trouble answering policy questions. I'm also sure this interview will get huge ratings so probs to ABC for that.
I'm expecting a fair interview from Charles Gibson. I've never known him to be unfair to either party. I'm sure all the other media hounds are second guessing their attempts to belittle her and her family.
I would not expect to see Palin on NBC, or CNN due to their bias coverage of her right after the annoucement. I also don't think the American people will have a problem with her skiping those forums as long as she does interviews on the other networks, and answers questions at some events. Palin has bought life to the McCain campaign. If McCain wins this election I believe this pick will have a lot to do with it.
