OPRAH will not have GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN ON SHOW AS GUEST

What do you think about that? I thought Oprah was about empowering WOMEN.

Would not this be a ratings coup? Actually- the fact that Oprah has refused may turn out to be even BIGGER FOR PALIN.

Heh. Legendary TV talk-show host Mike Douglas was correct when he remained apolitical on his show, so as not to alienate half of his audience. Yet he had guests from across the political spectrum.

Mr. Douglas was a true professional in his conduct. My hat is tipped to Ms. Winfrey for her overall success and accomplishments, but she fails in comparison to those who created the industry she thrives in today.

I always thought Johnny Carson did a great job of that as well

I bet she will alienate some women fans of hers. They will be even more open to checking out Palin. Oprah doesn't want Palin on her show because she is afraid Palin might sway some of her viewers away from Obama.

Oprah is afraid of hurting Obama's chances, she knows he has a tough fight with Palin on the ticket.

never elect a woman

who's a conservative
she's just a gender traitor

hmmm....
Oprah campaigned for Obama. The FCC has brought down the laws about equal time for both sides (and from that spawned conservative/crazy talk radio.) Oprah has the absolute right to have who she wants on her show. I mean, it is HER show.
Although the GOP and men are hoping to get women to vote because of Palin, most enlightened and educated women see through the sh*t the that Grand Old Party is trying to pull.
As SNL showed last night with their opening skit...it's not about women, it's about creditials. If Obama doesn't have the international experience, what is a woman from Alaska with only two years experience as a governor of a state who's population is that a medium television market going to do if McCain dies?

Swimfish: it isn't about FCC demanding equal time, it is about turning-off roughly 50% of your audience - some of whom may well be inclined to turn her off because of her bias. Yes, Ms. Winfrey is entitled to have whomever she wants on her show; but her viewers may not like her bias.

As for experience, Gov. Palin has more experience than a certain former governor of Arkansas, whom I'll wager you voted for in 1992, 1996.
