Robin Roberts Snags Rare Non-FNC Sarah Palin Interview

By Alex Weprin Comment

Because she is a paid contributor to Fox News, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rarely gives interviews outisde of the channel. An exception was made last week, when ABC’s Barbara Walters interviewed Palin as one of her “Most Fascinating People” of 2010.

Now, Palin is set to do another interview with ABC, this time with Robin Roberts at “Good Morning America.” Roberts will travel to Alaska and spend a “day-in-the-life” with Palin and her family, and will talk to her about her new book, as well as the political news of the day. The interview will air on “GMA” this Friday, December 17.

Paid contributors and anchors at news channels are often given permission to appear on competing networks when they have a book to sell. Palin is no different, though she has been outspoken about how she believes she has been treated by the “lamestream media.”
