Oprah to plug Palin book and maybe placate conservatives

Quote:
Oprah Winfrey, on a campaign to climb back from last season's ratings slump, will attempt to kiss and make up with conservative viewers on Nov. 16 when she has Sarah Palin on her syndicated talk show.

You may have noticed that the appearance by the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate is happening smack dab in the middle of the November ratings derby.

It's also the day before Palin's new book, "Going Rogue: An American Life" is scheduled to hit bookstores.

Oprah's Winfrey's production company, Harpo Productions, claims it will be Palin's first interview about the book. We'll see about that.

More importantly, Harpo also claims it will be the first time Oprah Winfrey will have met and Palin will have met, and Harpo should know.

It's not just another show booking for Oprah Winfrey. She's going whole hog this season to try to recover from the ratings tumble she took last season when her audience slid to under 7 million viewers. And, during one awful week in July, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" suffered its smallest ratings since its debut way back in 1985.

Industry navel gazers speculated Oprah had turned off some of her conservative viewers -- or, more accurately, they had turned her off -- when she not only endorsed then presidential candidate Barack Obama but even campaigned for him. (Palin, of course, was the running mate of Obama's rival, Sen. John McCain.)
This should be fun...

A multimillionaire who wants other people to redistribute their wealth getting a downhome woman dedicated to traditional values so they both gain financial benefit...

What can go wrong?...

eh, I think it's more interesting when folks from different walks of life sit down together. I'm sure this interview will be total "fluff" but I'm not gonna fault Oprah for wanting to increase her ratings. Good for her for interviewing someone who stands for things opposite her own beliefs. Unfortunately Palin is a stinky interview. I don't imagine she'll have anything substantive to say and I don't imagine Oprah will push her too hard so it's likely to be a giant bore.
