Sarah Palin Fires Back At Katie Couric

Sarah Palin leveled a highly charged blast at CBS anchor Katie Couric during an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Monday night. Palin, who was made to look ridiculous in a parody of the interview by Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live , was asked whether she would grant another interview to Couric if she decided to run for president. "As for doing an interview, though, with a reporter who already has such a bias against whatever it is that I would come out and say? Why waste my time? No," she replied. She then went on, "I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism, who, what, where, when, and why of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us. So a journalist, a reporter who is so biased and will, no doubt, spin and gin up whatever it is that I have to say to create controversy, I swear to you, I will not waste my time with her -- or him." During the course of the interview, Palin also shot back at critics of her daughter Bristol's success on ABC's Dancing With the Stars , saying, "Haters are going to hate." She added that despite the negative comments, she and her family have decided just to "dance and fly and soar and serve and speak about issues that are important to this country."
