Former Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin has turned down numerous requests for a sit-down interview on C-SPAN2’s BookTV for her widely read book, Going Rogue.
So far she has agreed only to let C-SPAN cameras follow her through a Cincinnati book signing. C-SPAN is still hopeful she will eventually say yes.
Why would former V.P. hopeful Sarah Palin turn down an interview request from BookTV? It’s not as if CBS’s Katie Couric is making a cameo on the most straightforward channel on television.
The Daily Dish’s Andrew Sullivan expressed annoyance earlier in the day, saying, “Yes, Palin can’t even handle a friendly sit-down with the last surviving reality-based cable news outlet.”

Sarah Palin signs copies of her book, Going Rogue: An American Life at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati. BookTV visits the bookstore and records Gov. Palin’s opening remarks, talks to attendees in line at the signing, and discusses the coordination and preparation for the event with the store’s marketing and event coordinator.
