Toby Keith also unknowing participant in Palin's Fox News show

LL Cool J wasn't the only one surprised to see that he was part of Sarah Palin's upcoming Fox News program, "Real American Stories."

A representative for country star Toby Keith told CNN that she too was unaware that Fox News was using an old interview of Keith's, conducted sometime in early 2009.

"I had no idea Toby's interview was going to air on Sarah Palin's special. I found out after the press release went out and was contacted by a reporter asking about the show," Keith’s publicist said. "It is an old interview….I was never contacted by Fox requesting permission. I still have not heard from Fox."

Calls to Fox News for comment have not been returned.

    Did Sarah use Toby Keith's video Trailerhood? Her supporters could certainly identify with that. Speaking from a bipartisan perspective, everyone should watch Trailerhood. It is funny! And while I am invoking popular culture to try to understand the current political climate, everyone should watch Raising Arizona. Great insight into the current state of Arizona and Alaska, for that matter, can be gained into the present American mindset.

    I wonder, does Palin even know. I always thought it was the producers, editors and all those ptb that determine who, what, when and how things get used and the actual person gets a memo about it all. Nice going folks trying to pin the whole of it on Palin.

    Apparently none of the left-wing wackjobs that only watch CNN and MSNBC never watched the show.
    Sarah Palin does not interview any of the people on the show. She is a HOST highlighting American heroes. Some of those highlighted are intereviewed LIVE. Most of the stories are voiced-over by Sarah Palin. At no time has it been protrayed that she would be interviewing the people.

    Take a liberal break and watch a real news channel, FOX NEWS.
    Then, get the facts...don't let the Obamamachine dictate what are the 'facts' are to you.

    people aren't 'afraid' of sarah palin, they are appalled that anyone would consider mentally fit enough to want to listen to her speak, let alone run this country. she continues the lying cheating complaining whining, while doing whatever she wants ... yes, the same things to other people that she doesn't like being done to her. in short, she's a republican.

    Leave it to Fox to manipulate the truth and take things out of context. Like when they used footage of a large angry crowd protesting outside Congress last summer for a story on a much smaller protest outside Congress last fall. (Jon Stewart and The Daily Show had a field day with the footage.)

    Unlike the rest of us who interpret the George Orwell novel "1984" as a frightful warning of what might be if evil politicians successfully manipulate the media to distort the truth and re-write history, Fox and Palin and every other right-wing propagandist think of "1984" as a How To manual.

    I studied journalism in college and this isn't right. FOX may own the rights to the footage, but this is clearly misrepresentation. What is it that she actually does? Is she just a host for a clips show? It doesn't matter that it's Sarah Palin's show. If Anderson Cooper or Katie Couric or Glenn Beck did it, it would still be wrong. Why didn't FOX News just advertise her show for what it is? If the higher-ups didn't think that was good enough, why should I?

    I'm an attorney, and whether or not Fox has the right to air the interviews entirely depends on what the agreement that was signed by the interviewee states. Considering the ability of the media to twist their reports, it is likely that Fox was only permitted to use the interviews for their original intent.

    The best thing about you conservatives is your blind love for certain politicians. I hope you give Palin the nomination.

SARAH PALIN and FO.X NEWS ATTEMPTED TO MISLEAD AND MANIPULATE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC ONCE AGAIN! As scenes of GOP reps shouting "you lie" & "baby killer" echo inside the halls of Congress. We've stooped too a new low when "TEA PARTY" zombies begin hurling the "N" word B*CTH & F*G at elected members of congress & start making direct threats at elected public officails who supported the historic health care legislation. These and other radical statements from Republicans & conservative talk show (shiilS) like Beck, Limbaugh, Coulter & "TEA PARTY" zombie threats are drawing ideological lines that revive our worse fears and divisions!

    I feel sorry for Palin because she her intelligence is so shallow..... she's so gutsy ....... she does and say things without giving it first a thought. Intelligent (or at least average) people think before they speak, but Palin talks first then later thinks, at which time the damage has already been done.

    Fox Noise has jimmied footage recently before:

    Remember Michelle Bachmans rally reqst to stop health care reform in DC? Fox spliced footage from an Aug Tea Party rally to enlarge the crowd. The problem was her rally was in the winter & depending on the shot some trees were bare & others were lush & green. Fixed News for sure! Signs and banners were exactly in the same place from both telecasts. Fox knew the typical right viewer wouldn't notice.

    Sean Hannity this week was saying John Kerry would be shocked at Barack Obama's flip flopping. He showed The President on the campaign trail saying he would draw down the Iraq troops right away. He also flipped to the President's recent visit to the troops in Afganistan where he said he supports the mission. Last time I checked Iraq and Afganistan were 2 different countries.

    Perhaps if Bush paid more attention in Afganistan in 2002 thru 2004 we could have gotten Bin Ladin. He wanted to go to Iraq to clean up his daddy's leftovers and line Halliburton's coffers.

    Kudos to Bill O'Reilly for stepping up for the military family and paying their legal fees( he will get it back, the appeal court decision was stupid).

    I watch Fox, CNN & MSNBC for a 'Fair & Balanced' view.

    Everyone should take a look at Frankity's post and ponder on it a bit.

    "It's such an interesting time. So much hate in the air, so much of it on these bulletin boards. So much ignorance, so many of us acting like we're "in the know." But how do you know? Where is your information coming from? News? News is skewed and spun, no matter which source. Paper? Every single one of them has a bias. Talk radio? Oy, don't get me started.

    The whole truth and nothing but the truth cannot be found anywhere. Don't pretend to know Palin, Obama, Toby Keith, or anybody else. That is simply impossible. Know yourself and be happy with that. This is just muddy water. All of this is just muddy, muddy water. But you can be a clear pool. Just sit still, get quiet, and breathe.

I tried to watch this show and had to drop out after about 10 minutes - her empassioned discussion about people fleeing their country in boats leaving all their possessions behind to come to land where they were not ruled by tyranny and were free to make a new life for themselves and their families .... was all in the 'past' and excluded the thousands of Cubans and Haitians that have done just that in the last 40 years. Of course they are reverred as true "American" immigrants are they?

    While you Palin-hating morons are out, don't visit these extra seven States the US had and we didn't know till BHO came to Washington to tell us about them, in Austrian; and that the HC Bill will save 3,000% to employers. And stay away from overpopulated islands, because they may tip over and capsize. These are the new brilliant leaders of this Nation, all elected, appointed, and awarded trophies and Nobel prices by affirmative action.

    It's such an interesting time. So much hate in the air, so much of it on these bulletin boards. So much ignorance, so many of us acting like we're "in the know." But how do you know? Where is your information coming from? News? News is skewed and spun, no matter which source. Paper? Every single one of them has a bias. Talk radio? Oy, don't get me started.

    The whole truth and nothing but the truth cannot be found anywhere. Don't pretend to know Palin, Obama, Toby Keith, or anybody else. That is simply impossible. Know yourself and be happy with that. This is just muddy water. All of this is just muddy, muddy water. But you can be a clear pool. Just sit still, get quiet, and breathe.

Sure you have to play hardball when you live in politics, but not acknowledgeing what is well done and just criticizing constantly is playing politics and disorting the truth and not moving issus forward.

    I don't get any of you Palin bashers. It is as simple as this...Fox doesn't need permission, Sarah Palin's book was and is a best seller for a reason, Quit thinking of Tina Fey you idiots, Palin would be a great, if not one of the greatest presidents due to the fact that she is real, she has lived in the REAL world with a real job, a real husband, and real children, that like most kids doesn't always make the best decisions at the time. She has a way of getting our nation back to the USA we all can be proud of and not trillions of dollars in debt...and NO, Obama you can quit saying it was because of Bush. I am 100% for her and will gladly campaign for her. She is not a quitter or she would be laying around in Alaska playing with her children and grandson.
    And, by the way...how is Obama working out for all you supporters?
    And, one last simple fact is that if you don't like her change your channel you freaks! They have remote control now and with a click of a button you can be on your Obama lovin' channel...CNN and Joy Behar will gladly answer all your questions and comments with the vast knowledge of what her weird questionable brain can hold.

    Another quick thought...has Obama pulled Pelosi out of his butt yet? Has Biden made any sense at all since the day he was sworn in? I think not and I am sad to say Hillary would do better than all three combined until Palin can finally step in and do what is right. I can't wait to see her and visit Alaska because I can quarantee that it will be nothing like Washington D.C. right now with all the crooked methods Obama is using to meet his own WICKED agenda. I believe with him, that we are headed straight to being a communist country with a dictator and he thinks he is the man for the job.

    I believe there is a defect in some human minds that drive them to particular sites or blogs. For instance, this website tends to draw people who are extremely hateful, angry and intolerant, yet tend to mask or compensate these traits by claiming to be compassionate or progressive. Step away from the hate and intolerance, and look at the story objectively. Palin likely had absolutely nothing to do with this promo piece, and very likely the top management at Fox had no knowledge of it either. The person to blame is likely an independent producer paid t o put the promo together. Yet look at all these hateful posts!

    TOM: The reason why it is so underhanded is that the show and many pundits promoted the particpants as "Sarah's guests". In fact, before it aired a popular conservative blogger said liberals will be "shocked to find the alleged Grand Dragon of the tea-party movement making chitchat with a hip-hop legend." While the show itself was wonderful, it certainly made it appear as though Sarah Palin met the participants, and the fact that certain famous people would choose her to tell their "story" indicates that they support her in some way. The show itself was great, but Palin was clearly using it to promote her political career. Palin has the right of free speech, but the participants also have the right to choose how their images are used.

Do you suppose that controversy is the most effective, free advertising available. If CNN isn't chargingFox for running this story, they should. Truth be told they probably have some kind of barter system where Fox will run an article next week about how Rachel Maddow ate a fetus on air. And speaking of advertising, who do you suppose they are catering to...all the folks on this post ranting about the unfit Mom on Faux News.

Curiosity got the best of me. Thing about Palin that many people will not admit is that she is making people think about what is going on, I have to give her credit for that. She has gotten much better in national politics, but I wouldn't vote for her mainly because there is so much hatred for her in Washington that she could not get anything done, just like the problems she had in Alaska when her critics dug to find anything they could to get her out (and it worked).

Well, I hate to burst your bubble but they are both card carrying Republicans, along with a slew of popular celebs like Angie Harmon, Meatloaf and Kelsey Grammer, just to name a few. These guys are not saying anything bad about Palin, they are only saying that they had no knowledge that their interviews were being utilized. I see no harm or malfeasance in this.

    Sarah Palin is damaging the Republican party. She is a loose cannon that is only interested in her own fame and fortune. She is so transparent that it is simply amazing that anyone with two brain cells should be able to see it. She should get out of politics and embrace show business as it suits her much better.

    For all of you who have no clue understand this.

    Once an interview is granted and conducted by any news agency it then becomes the property of said news agency to use as they feel fit. So if FOX did the interview they are allowed to use and reuse it as many times as they like. Despite your desires to suppress conservative views.

    It's funny how liberals talk about equality and help to the needy but they are the first ones to spew hatred and vitriol at anyone or anything they disagree with. There is a special place reserved for you when the time comes. Dress appropriately.

    Working for a REAL NEWS OUTLET, if we use old video, we always put "FILE" on it, so people are not confused that it is something that just happened. It is not "liberal" to do so, it is honest. That's what you should expect from a news organization.

    Go watch "Good Morning Vietnam" and listen to the interview with former VP Richard Nixon. A little editing can make you laugh or cry. Fox may own the tape of an interview with Toby Keith, but who is going sign up for interviews in the future if Fox is going to pull it years later and edit it for use in the way this is being the to Toby Keith, LL Cool J and others? I watch news programs from around the world and a lot of people would better informed if they did the same. I just keep my mouth shut to stop the laughing from being heard by others.

    That's why it's called Faux News; they fabricate everything: stories, statistics, facts, history, and most noticeably, context for footage. Then they pretend it was all a big mistake and try to carry on as usual. They're like that kid in school who was a terrible liar but rarely got in trouble because their antics usually weren't heinous enough to warrant any actual punishment, but when called out on something couldn't play the martyr quickly (or dramatically) enough.

    Neither party is perfect. Overtime they change. In fact we can all see that politicians make bold claims when they run for office and then once in...fail to act. More importantly is that there is a cultural change going on in America. It happens every decade as we as a nation grow. The pendulum swings liberal to conservative and back again as we evolve. It's a good thing. Liberals have some good ideas as well as conservatives. Sometimes we as a nation realize that some ideas have gone to far and we put the breaks on, other times we look for more change and speed it up.

    I believe the growing dicontent with Congress is going to result in voter backlash. It happens and is a good thing. Change is a good thing. I think many are looking at career politicians in a new light and are going to send a few packing, from both sides. Ultimately we are their employers, and if they don't cut the mustard, see ya!

    I don't hate the Tea Partiers....I encourage them...even if I support some of their views and not others. I think it is great that people are taking an interest in politics.

    I think overwhelmingly the people of America want to be heard...not just used to vote people into office...and then let them do what they want.

    The Republican Party is searching for it's voice and redefining its values. The Democratic Party is suffering due to a diconnect with the people and will reinvent itself eventually. Independents are probably the ones looking for that real person that is committed to the people.

    Congress makes the laws and has the real legislative power. The President only has power of influence behind him. Words mean nothing without action.

    So I encourage all opinions from the left and right...because somewhere in the middle we will make the majority happy and move forward.

    copt right??? I think you meant copyright. Actually a interview is the property of the organization, network, etc. who conducted it. A release is signed by the person who was interviewed, that explains ownership. People are often paid for interviews, thus selling their time. However, there is something that basically does say "fair representation" in which it is expected that a interview can not be edited, to viewed out of context. Unless, of course, proper disclaimers are presented in the show's credits, etc. Often if someone's past interview is shown, a courtesy call is given to their representation ... but not required, unless in original contract. So basically, it is not all about a copyright.

I stopped supporting the Dems once I found out they are only in it for the money and they say they are for minorities but turn their back on them after they get their votes. After the last election we are now stuck with a party in power that cares not what the people want but only themselves. I'm changing parties and voting them out in November. There seems to be a growing wave of realism to undo the mistake of the last election. We voted for "Change", and got more of "exactly the same". I think it might be time for a fiscally responsible person to take the reins. Any Boy Scouts out there, or even a mother that struggles to make ends meet every month and actually can manage money?

    RE: Palin's mothering abilities

    To those of you who think Palin is a "wonderful mom" I say she doesn't automatically get that ovation just because she has a baby with Down Syndrome. How can she be a good mother or know anything about having a baby with Down Syndrome if she runs for the Vice Presidency after having her baby? She used and uses that baby to sell herself to be a leader in what it takes to advocate for the needs of the developmentally disabled which is alarming to those of us who do know, put in the time and have lived a life to be there and support our children with special needs. She tries to get the sympathy vote to the detriment of her little one. She hasn't been with her baby on a constant basis, the only way to learn what his needs are and even if she were, he's a baby, you can't know unless you gain some experience with your child and the systems in place to support developmentally disabled children/teens and adults in our world. It takes hours each day and involvement in your children's lives to know what their needs are and where the holes are in the system. As a parent of a grown son with Down Syndrome my opinion, which is shared by all of my friend's who also have adult children with Down Syndrome: she's clueless and a complete hypocrite. I wouldn't want her advocating for my son's needs if hell froze over. I feel sorry for her baby who is the one who loses here. He cannot be all that he is capable of if his Mommy is not available to help him get there on a daily and hourly basis.....

    I never read this stuff but for some reason it has caught my eye. Maybe because I like Toby Keith. I have been a fan of his since his first release. I like some songs better than others but it's his choice what song he wants to sing. I try to believe that's why our troops are over seas fighting a long hard battle (choice and freedom). Not the fact that they were lied to and sent off by their boss to sacrifice their lives. I never knew that Toby was a Democrat until I watched him a few years ago on the Glenn Beck show on HLN. I must say I was suprised. I naturally thought he was a Republican since he didn't speak out against the Cowboys from Texas and Wyoming who thought GOD had put them on the earth to rule the world. And yes, I did vote republican in the election. I feel that John McCain has paid his dues to this country and if anyone is deserving to occupy the greatest home in America, it is him. Palin however, was different. When your'e in an interview and can't name a single newspaper that is written in this country, Well, I have to tell you I begin to wonder. Yes, I did watch her on TV the day that John McCain announced her as his running mate and I for one was very excited but, the more she talked, the less enthused I became. If everyone would stop making a fuss over her just maybe she might go back to Alaska and meet some of the prople she once represented. Yes, I also saw the interview of the people in Alaska would had no idea who she was. When people were shown a picture of her, they didn't know her and they had never heard her name as their governor. How ironic that we would know who she is, but people in her own state didn't have a clue. Now all of a sudden people are wanting her to represent this country in the highest office.
    Folks, whether you are Republican or Democrat it's time we get back to the basics that our forefathers fought for. How "PROUD" they would be to know that we have thrown their ideas out the window and are
    actually tearing this great nation apart. So sad!

    And maybe it is "legal" to use old interviews at Fox Spews.. but it certainly isn't journallisticly ethical (one second..

    If Sarah Palin (affectionately called Failin' Palin in earlier comments...love it) really thought LL Cool J and Toby Keith wanted to be on her show and supported her and her cause, she would have invited them to conduct new interviews rather than stealing old footage to use out of context for her own purposes. How unethical? If she can't even be an honest t.v. host, why would anyone think she would be an honest governor, senator, president or person for that matter.

    Maybe Fox News producers didn't see anything unethical about implying in the promos that Keith and LL Cool J would be featured interviews, when they hadn't even contact either of them to get their agreement first.

    Does anyone here know exactly what "old" interviews Plain was/is planningto use? It's certainly not stated in this article. Does anyone know who actually did the interviews way back when? No, because it's not stated here. I would deduce the Toby Kieth interview was not originally done by Fox as Kieth's publicist said she was not contacted by Fox for permission. That's the one person in this article who is mentioned that would ahve knowlege of contractual terms.

    Have all of you forgot what your Mom's and Dad's probably taught you when you were little? "You can't believe everything you hear or read". That said, here's an undeniable fact – Sarah Palin has quit MULTIPLE jobs. This is not opinion or hearsay, this is a matter of record. That said, why would anyone in their right might support/endorse a quitter as the potential leader of our country. Sarah Palin is nothing more than a side show bob. 10 years from now, when we all look back to now, she will be a nobod – because of her own penchant for quitting anything she starts.

    – Bleach blonde
    – Seated between two tools/guys
    – Situated on a couch or short chair
    – In a skirt to show off their legs

    Have you actually SEEN the commercials on Fox News? I've never seen a station that relied so heavily on partisan political ads as they do. Clearly you miss my main point, anyway. Obviously YOU are aware of the internet and the fact that there are news sources on it. What you do NOT seem aware of, based on your trying to claim that Fox News is the #1 news source solely because of TV ratings, is that the reason right-leaning television and radio news/political opinion programming has higher viewership number than their left or (allegedly) neutral counterparts is that most of the younger (and generally more left/center leaning) crowd has abandoned TV and Radio for the internet. Why? Because on the internet we can CHOOSE which articles we think are important, instead of relying on other people to tell what is important.

    Therefore, Sarah Palins show, "Real American Stories" is not REAL current nor REALly done by Sarah just MADE to appear so. Does this mean that EVEN Fox is scared of her inability?

He said before he was elected the 44th president of the USA, that it was going to get worse before it got better. But what the problem is, is that white people fear him as well. They figure a black man can't contribute to this country let alone do something to make a difference. Bottom line, white people don't want a N***A telling them what to do.

Most people who don't want to work are not affiliated with any political party. They are just lazy. Most of the young people are the ones getting the few jobs out there because they are willing to take entry level positions with little pay. Laid off older folks have a harder time because they made more money and no one wants to hire them because of that plus their age. I have always worked, have health insurance through my job, a retirement plan and two 401k's. I think everyone should at least have the opportunity to have that. That was how America worked when Clinton was president. Bush has put our country in so much debt it is pitiful. Obama is doing what he can to fix the mess Bush and his cronies made.

    It is interesting that the right confuses disgust with fear. The only ones that should fear Sarah Palin are the wolves that she enjoys shooting for sport from Helicopters. Because you KNOW Jesus, given the chance would summarily execute animals from Helicopters... ya know if he could afford it.

    If the loons on the right can assemble enough nut cases to vote for Palin for President I am sure the likes of Newt Gingrich and Dick Cheney wouldn't let her within 50 miles of the nuclear missle codes. Oh the loons will have their teabagging parties and all but when the uproar dies down she'll be relegeated to rolling out the first tire at NASCAR events or what ever the toothless wanna see at those things.

    What I find real humourous here is how the Fox fans, think because since they have more viewers, its more accurate news. All that really means is that, people just go to where the story is told the way they like to hear it. So there is only one option for the right extreme. the other optinos are more for the left side. Furthermore considering the population of the US, it pretty much says, most people arent watching. Why? They realize its a bunch of bias entertainment propaganda designed to turn a buck, and arent interested. A number of those who do watch, are just out to see how backwards and gulliable either side is to this stuff. And boys and girls there are a lot of suckers out there on both sides.

Also Fox personalities support the military much more than you hear from CNN or MSNBC, so it only makes sense.

    I'm with many of the other posters, I sincerely hope Palin gets the nomination for Pres. in 2012. I'm going to go a bit farther though. I almost hope she wins. While I'd hate to have to live through the serious mess she'd likely make of things, the good news is that the aftermath would be like Bush to the tenth power- by the time she was done, it might be centuries before any American even considered electing another fringe nut job with more voice than brains and a sincere desire to return this country to the 19th century.

    " the truth is, it is down right misleading for her or the tv execs to be running those interview clips since they have nothing to do with her show."

    Do you even know what her show is about or how the interviews are intro'd?

    The show is about inspirational Americans and is semi-biographical about each of the people. That would include using old clips, footage, and interviews. The show does not pretend that Palin is conducting to interview.

    Fox owns the rights, and again what people are overlooking, this isn't a "Palin Rally" show, it's a show about people who have made great accomplishments in their lives, in lots of industries, these stories should appeal and inspire everyone, no matter what your political affiliation is. If anyone but Palin was doing this, no one would say a word. By the way, all CNN is doing by stirring this up is upping the ratings for her show because now more people will turn into Fox to see what all the hubbub is about, and won't CNN be shocked if people actually decide they like Fox better?! The problem here is that obviously Palin (who by the way I am no big fan of) has people on the left scared, so they look for any reason to tear her down and discredit her. I didn't see gripes when Obama used canned interviews and statements during his campaign, so what's the difference?

We used to be a proud country that most others looked up to. During the 2nd Bush administration, we lost that respect and were the butt of jokes in Europe. When Obama was legally elected ( not court appointed – by the way I voted for McCain) Europe felt maybe we had not become of nation of folks auditioning for Dumb and Dumber, but then the crazies came out of their closets.

    We need someone who is intelligent, caring and can be respected on a world stage. We need to regain our reputation as being an intelligent society. In case you haven't noticed, we have become a county where the dumbest, the most racist and the biggest bigots get the most press. WHAT HAPPENED??

Majority of voters watch cable news, majority of those watch Fox, majority of people voted for a liberal, democratic president and congress in the last 2 elections. Seems to me that Fox shows that it is in fact fair and balanced and appeals to both dem and republican, as every survey ever done proves.

Obama will not win the nomination or will he become president of the United States now or later. Hillary will win the nomination without a doubt and might become the first woman president. Obama couldn't win over Guiliani or Fred Thompson even if he won the nomination. America is not ready for him and may never be. Wake up!! If he won the nomination most democrats would vote republican. He may win in Illinois and a few other states but that's all. All Obama has is a big smile and big teeth, but he doesn't know politics as well as Hillary Clinton, Rudy or Fred Thompson. He's not capable of discussing matters with world leaders and you can tell that by the way he campaigns. World leaders would laugh at him."

Perhaps not the stars she wants but certainly there are celebrites who are ultra conservative who would eagerly accept a request for an interview. Or maybe not, I don't know.

You won't have to do any research, prepare questions or sit down and talk with anyone. Are you interested?

    Networks re-use old interviews all the time. ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, etc. all do it.

    And technically the network owns copyright of the interview unless there was a special agreement before hand and therefore can do what they want with it.

    The big outrage is that Fox and Palin are doing it. If it were CNN and Anderson Cooper or Christiana Amanpour, no one would even blink about it.

    I'm so sick of the "omg the left does this" "omg the right does that" bullcrap. Why can't we focus on the topic at hand instead of getting into some idealogical war. Labels don't allow people to think straight. It automatically turns into an "us vs them" situation when people throw around labels. And honestly, the only "us vs them" we should see is "us vs the government". Politicians on both sides are corrupt and money hungry. Instead of spewing hatred at each other and listening to talking heads on T.V why can't we think for ourselves and use actual respectful talking with evidence backing up what we believe.

    Here are what I believe is relevant to the article:
    -The people running a show said they had interviews from various celebrities.
    – Whether or not they need permission, it looks a bit shady (in my opinion) when they use interviews without informing the interviewee. When the host is a political figure, it almost seems like they are trying to trick the viewer into thinking the celebrities support the politician and that goes for both a left leaning or right leaning network.

    To me this isn't a right vs left thing...this is a "I think network X behaved in a slightly shady manner" thing. I'd think the same if MSNBC did it.

    The left and the right refuse to engage in a factual discussion here, so I'll do it for both of these bonehead groups.

    Point 1 the Interviews:

    If you sign a release when doing an interview for a given news provider they can use it for whatever show they like. If they choose to use said interview without at least letting the person know ahead of time, it simply shows they are of poor character and provide little courtesy for others, but its not criminal.

    Point 2 the Context:

    If the show's promo (which I have not seen) says something to the effect of "On the Sarah Palin Show, interviews of amazing americans Toby Keith and L.L. Cool J" It has not stated that Palin interviewed them, but it is implied, and this speaks to how sensationalized and dramatized news has become, it's about ratings and advertising dollars, and illustrates that the network executives and marketing team are of bankrupt moral values, but it's not criminal.

    This is the problem with this country, everyone left or right slants their argument to what benefits them, and their perspective rather than looking at objectively.

    Reading this blog is what's wrong with American Politics. Left wingers aren't inherently ignorant and neither are right winger's. They just hold different points of view on a given issue. To get a real preception on what's going on is hard.

    News agencies used to be more ethical and that's why this story popped up. Fox is right, MSNBC is left, and CNN plays the guidance counselor by asking their viewers how they feel about a story. The common American is the victim, because they don't know better.

    You really have to take a look at each to get an overall unbiased report.
    Fox News is pretty much full of shi*. But at any given time you can find plenty of liberal examples. I personally don't like Fox News for the most part because their anchors are too opinionated. Same goes for MSNBC.

    Still the left-wingers try to bash and dumb-down Palin. Quite amusing actually. I think some of these posters must be brain dead to think that the Democrats are doing a bang-up job. LOWEST approval rating in the history of our country. I can't wait 'till November!!! 🙂 BIG SMILE!

    I doubt that Sarah Palin had anything to do with it personally, but I do find it amusing that when the same thing was done to her (think Newsweek) she made big noises about being exploited. Unfortunately, she doesn't feel the need to set higher standards.

    This is a typical Sarah Palin trick – using old outdated interview segments out of context and without permission.

    If this airs, Toby Keith (a true patriotic American) should sue Palin, Fox News, and whichever shows this airs on (including repeats).

    I hope he gets a bagfull of cash – knowing what kind of guy Toby is, any money he collects from this would probably go to a veterans' charity.

    Oh for god's sake. I agree that the people who were part of the special should have been told that old interviews were going to be used for this special. Now with that said, it all depends on who owns the rights of the clips, if Fox purchased them then they have the right to use it, if they didn't guess what they will be sued by the owners.

    Once again, people jumping to a conclusioin without knowing any of the facts. As far as Sarah Palin being behind it, without knowing if she was part of the decision process as to get the clips and not tell anyone how can anyone, left or right blame her?

    To Tom – this isn't about being liberal or conservative. Toby Kieth calls himself a conservative. He gave the interview last year and it WASN"T done by Mrs. Palin. Fox is using the interview as if he was just interviewed. Fox did not contact Mr. Keith to even give him the common courtesy to say, hey we're goign to use the interview you gave us last year. The same thing with LL Cool J. He gave his interview even earlier than Toby. Again, Fox did not call LL Cool J to at least let him know they had planned on using it. It has nothing to do with liberal or conservative or anything political. It has to do with common courtesy. How would you feel if you gave an interview to someone, then someone else used that interview a year later in a program....let's say, Keith Olberman...............You wouldn't liket it either.

    Okay, the 95% of the posters here obvously no NOTHING about Television. Fox is doing absolutely NOTHING wrong here. They shot the interviews with the actors permission – so now FOX owns the interviews. Palin is simply hosting a segment where they will be admiring someone who has overcome adversity. To do this they will use interviews, clips, photos etc. This is EXTREMELY COMMON in magazine shows, commentaries, entertainement shows, News, etc. Yes, CNN and MSNBC do this often as well. Look past your hate for the person & look at the facts. This is only news because it has Palins name attached to the show and the subjects don't like Palin. If it was Oprah, they wouldn't have said a word.

    When it was just the networks doing news it was considered a public service and they expected to lose money on it. Now with the 24 hour news channels they need to make a profit instead of provide a public service. Also please keep in mind that commentators on both sides are not news. They pick and choose which facts to display to support their argument. Best way to get the news is to watch, read, and listen to multiple sources. You will find what is common to both ideologies and what isn't go for the middle. It's probably as close to the truth as we are likely to get.

You take a short story and make all sort of assumptions about why she used taped interviews, her legal rights to use it, so on and so forth. It seems like at some point you folks would realize that this exact behavior is why you are in the minority in this country. I thought the election of Scott Brown would have clued you in. And yet, here you are, continuing to criticize Palin and Fox as if they are evil. If Fox is so bad, why is it that they have nearly 3 times the ratings of CNN?

Also why do you call us liberals as if it were a bad thing? We are all liberal when we want to be, and if not we should be more generous and less hateful. Palin is a sign of a hateful and distasteful movement of extremism in this country. It goes against the grain of what real truth, love, honesty, and morality should be. Stop distorting, stop blaming and why don't you start analyzing yourselves. Palin should be more concerned about her children and that baby that needs more attention. She is more concerned about headlines and making money. She has failed in the test of government service by abandoning her one and only post. Remember, it took 6 years for the republicans to make this #$%^ mess we are all struggling with. It is pretty ugly for Republicans, Palin Failins and the drug induced Rush to wish failure upon the current administration when in fact they had the power for 6 years and almost destroyed the country with risky ventures and a sad war on the wrong country. Our country is slowly coming back to life economically thanks to the Republican loss. And you all hate that so much you are running scared!

    This is how things work in the real world. If a performer does an interview on a network show (fox and friends,gma,today), it entirely belongs to the network. They can bring it out on any other of their network shows at no charge (check out MSNBC on the weekends). It is not a copyright issue because they agreed to the terms of the show. Musical performances are different because they entail copyright issues, but as long as you pay the licensing fee it's no foul. That's how things work in the real world.

    Her very geniune demeanor may come across as unsophisticated and hence unintelligent.
    In the real world, it must take some degree of intellect to become elected as Governor of a state. And to run the state without some sort of crisis.
    The same with G Bush Jr – he is very geniune in his demeanor. However, he went to and graduated from an Ivy League school – sure his family status prob helped him get in.
    Just saying, in the real world, away from eletronic forums and chat – these things would require a reasonable amount of intellect.

    It is no surprise that we are questioning the journalistic ethics of a political "spokesperson" who quit her term as Governor of Alaska in order to speak at $100,000+ speaking engagements for her own benefit and a network who has even stated that their majority of their programming is not actual news during certain hours of the day, but clearly markets the biased inaccurate programming as actual news. What is surprising is that some audiences believe that Palin and Fox are actually in the political arena for journalistic service or patriotic reasons and not just for the ratings and money. As Americans, we should support our President, our government, our military , our troops, and our communities. Not throw our money and time at a network that clearly is just "in it for the money."

    I have been reading through the comments and for the most part I look at it realistically... The interviews are over a year old, which means whatever they were originally recorded for has probably played... I am also sure the contracts were for whatever the original program was, but regardless of that, considering how Sarah Palin was running for VP, and may be running for POTUS in 2012, and how so many people think (for whatever reason) she is so Political savy and smart, WHY, and again I ask WHY didn't she ask if these were verified before she put her name on it... Regardless of who did it she is the one that is in the front of it and if she isn't smart enough to reach out to those people and verify before hand, what kind of decisions/reasoning would she make in a level of real power without thinking about it... That is the thing with it her, it seems she never thinks before she acts, and whoever is running her PR doesn't think very well either... UNLESS she knew what it was and didn't care, either way, it makes her look like the stupid one, and basically, she is the stupid one for getting herself in the middle of it by not verifying first, considering how they made a commercial about it with all of the players in it, so she had knowledge of who was going to be on but it seems as if she either just blindly followed FOX (that is very presidential), or she knew and didn't care (another great political aspect)...

    So however it went down, SHE is the one that was the biggest fool because her name is the one out front...

    Ms. Palin's show is promoting these interviews in such a way that it implies that she actively particpated in the interviews, which is false. The only thing that the two performers have stated is that they did not do interviews with Ms. Palin. That's all. If her defenders are now trashing the performers for speaking out, then they are really grasping at straws.

    It is unfortunate that the Palin fans are spewing words like Marxst, Communist, Socialist, etc. It is likely that they cannot define these words, much less point to specific legislation or executive orders to support their position. It is extremely difficult to have an intelligent conversation with someone who's disagreements are founded on falsehoods. But we are talking about Fox News, and the ignorant viewers who watch.

    Yes, Fox has great ratings, but they are the sole source of the innacurte hateful messages that fuel the Teabagger movement. Those of us willing to calmly listen to all sides have many more choices, including NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN. Stick with Fox, folks, and the rest of us will get the facts.

    I know "news programs" show older interviews from time to time. The problem I have with Palin's show is that she and her producers did not seek permission to use these interviews for her show. Also, the ads appear that she is interviewing them so that is a bit disceptive. If she and Fox "News" want to be taken seriously, perhaps they should respect their viewers and interviewees. No where have I read that LL Cool J and Toby Keith say that they would not have granted permission. What I have read is that they were not informed or asked about using the old interviews.

    Nothing personal against Palin, but many of these comments are absolutely correct. It's all about her and money. She betrayed the people of AK by quitting after only a year and a half. She promotes violence and hate with the fringe part of the right. She can only conduct an interview if she is well scripted and knows the question ahead of time.

    I believe the interview was originally done by Fox News, so they own it. Sarah Palin is now a correspondent for Fox News, so she can use what they own. If the interview was done by another news agency, then this event would be newsworthy.

    I am vehemently opposed to both Fox News and Sarah Palin, but one thing has to be mentioned here: It's not about who you like, it's about what you signed. Here is a partial release form, which is very typical in the industry:

    For value received, I agree and consent that __(Production Co.)__ Inc. and its nominees and assigns may use any motion pictures, still photographs, videotape recordings, magnetic tape recordings, optical recordings, digital recordings taken of _(talent)_____ on ___ of ___, 2010, for ___(Project Name)___ or any preproduction thereof, in any form, style or color, together with any writing and/or other advertising and/or publicity material in connection therewith, including the use of my name, as they may select.

    This consent and release is given by me without limitations upon any use for projection, playback, reprints, rerun, broadcast, telecast.......

    That is the gist of any release. They may vary, but the point is that if the talent signed it, that's what they have to put up with.

She's not producing the show, except in name only.

    As for Sarah's supposed supporters, Elizabeth Hasselbeck of the view who is ultra conservative said that Palin's went beyond the pale when she suggested all you nuts jobs reload and then put crosshairs over the states where they voted for Health Care.

    Maybe you people should also check out the French President's interview when he said his country (and pretty much all of Europe) don't understand why our citizens do not want the poor and disadvantaged to not have health care, and why they are so bitterly opposed to a basic human right....and down right selfish.

    I suspect a lot of the tea party movement are using health care as an excuse, and it is because of the color or our President's skin that they object to all of his policies they are just too cowardly to admit it in public.

    Unfortunately, FOX did the interviews, which LL and Toby both agreed to at the time, for the very same program indicated. What they didn't tell them was that Sarah Palin was going to be the host. First mistake was being interviewed by FOX!! They should have known better, they should have known what kind of news FOX slants towards!
    Regardless of whether or not we like Palin, LL or Toby, the show will move forward, and draw much criticism. Maybe this is Palin's way of generating media attention. I certainly don't believe that LL or Toby wanted to create this sort of publicity for themselves.
    There is not much either party (LL or Toby) can do at this point. They certainly can't sue, they agreed to the interview when it was taped.
    As unfortunate as it is. The upside is that Palin's attempt at reentering the living rooms of the American people in a really positive and uplifting way backfired horribly. Actually makes me chuckle.

    I majored in Journalism back in the '70's. We were taught that you never wrote a story, quoted someone, ran a broadcast about them, etc. without getting their permission first. If I watched this show, and saw Sarah Palin talking about these "Real American Stories" I would, of course, think that she had their permission to air these "previously recorded" interviews. I don't have a problem with Mrs. Palin having her own show, but do have a problem with her using famous American's stories, without asking them first. It seems wrong to me.

    Removing my opinion about Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals... (the election was a year & a half ago. move on with your life.)

    Regardless of whether or not it's legal for Fox to air those interviews – and I haven't seen the contracts they signed, so how do I know – it's certainly unethical and downright rude not to contact the interviewees before you air them on your show. Whether that was Sarah's decision or some nameless tv exec, it's a terrible idea. Potentially she had a relatively interesting show set up but now, no one will take it seriously. Palin set herself up for this, so I guess it's her own fault, but I do feel a little sorry for her.

    "Head Diva" (how cute) seems to have much more in common with things she attacks then she thinks. Tell me...why is it you would assume Toby would be "more than happy to be part of a Palin special"? That's a rhetorical question....we all know the answer and recognize the hypocrisy (though a liberal likely wouldn't have the honest nature to admit they recognize it). Toby Keith is a lifelong DEMOCRAT. You would know this if you chose to season yourself before popping off....but doing such a thing would mean automatic revocation of your liberal membership card, now wouldn't it?

    Fox is no different than MSNBC, CNN, or any of the other liberal garbage mills....they are just the conservative alternative. You liberals freakin kill me with the proud hypocrit badges you wear on your shirts....right next to the feelings you wear on your sleeves. I don't much care for Palin either – but think big girls and boys should address the lack of integrity in their own house before throwing empty cans at others.

    For the record, Toby Keith (surprisingly) supported Obama during the 08 cycle, and even went on the record with his appreciation for someone to bring about change. He didn't really trumpet his support as this would likely alienate a lot of his fanbase. Sadly, his music appeals to mouthbreathing xenophobes and at least he's wise enough to know that...

    As for Palin: there's nothing wrong with her that I couldn't fix with a time machine and a 5-gallon bucket of water 🙂

Take old interviews that other presidents have done and try to take credit for them???? unreal. And what's worse, John McCain is still trying to use her to win his seat again!

    I think what nobody's mentioned is the fact that the promo was structured in a way to imply endorsement of the show.

    The fact is that Palin is a political figure. I think this would be different if the host of the show wasn't involved in a presidential campaign. Using these interviews, perhaps these people feel that implies endorsement of their political views.

    First, all of you Palin-bashers are misinformed morons. Do you know anything about Palin other than Tina Fey's portrayal? Read her book... if you can't read, there is an audio version. No, she's not a genius, but she has some pretty good ideas about repairing the health of this country and its economy and she has a proven track record to back it up.
    Second, no one has to ask permission to air an old interview. He gave permission when the interview took place and they can run it anytime for any purpose.
    Finally, if you think Nancy Grace and Joy Behar are NEWS, then no wonder you are raking Fox over the coals. You are unaware of what real news actually is.

    This is not "under handed" as claimed by Lenny. It happens all the time in media. This is why some controversial people will not go on certain talk shows for fear that it will be used to put them in the wrong light. Just ask the NY Times.
