At the behest of the McCain campaign, Matt Drudge is trying to make an issue of forcing Oprah Winfrey to put Sarah Palin on her show. As is usual, Drudge becomes a way for McCain to get it onto the MSM, including ABC.
The item in today’s ‘Drudge Report’ is categorically untrue,” Winfrey said in a written statement provided to ABCNews.com. “There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show.
“At the beginning of the presidential campaign, when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates,” Winfrey wrote.
How could she possibly bring Palin on after she has publicly declared for Obama? If she asked the hard questions which Palin has been avoiding, she’d be accused of an Obama hatchet job.
Drudge is such a Karl Rove apparatchik.
