Stage management

What a pathetic collection of interviews! Greta Van Susteren at home with the Palins was so staged it was painful to watch. (Update: I found out it was not at home, but at a hotel room!)

Then they moved on to the finishing line of the Iron Dog and Sarah spoke about the stimulus package, the gas pipeline, hungry markets blah blah blah.

Towards the end of the segment "The Governor's View" Sarah Palin mentioned the Fairness Doctrine and went on to say that it would shut down voices that are asking the tough questions: Greta, Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity ... if there were attempts to quash these voices that would be very dangerous for our democracy.

The Fairness Doctrine would require broadcasters to air both sides of controversial issues. Can you imagine Fox News trying to do that?

It would be even more painful to watch!
