Palin a Big Name in News This Week

November 17, 2009 | NeW Staff

Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue, was released today, and naturally, not without major publicity, controversy, and buzz surrounding it.  Yesterday, talk show host Oprah Winfrey interviewed Palin on air.  Winfrey brought up the now infamous Katie Couric interview, inquired about her daughter Bristol’s ex, Levi, and why she resigned from the Alaska governorship.  Watch the video for Palin’s responses.  Winfrey interviewed Palin with “guarded civility and thinly veiled skepticism,” according to The New York Times.

The publicity yesterday was only just beginning.  Today, the controversy surrounding Palin is over the cover of Newsweek.  Palin had posed previously for Runner’s World, and Newsweek used the shot to feature their headline: “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Sarah?”  Many Palin supporters are calling Newsweek’s use of the picture sexist.  

What do you think the future for Sarah Palin will be in American politics?  For many, she has become a champion of their political values and beliefs, and yet for others, she has become a target.  Are the attacks against both this woman and her family fair?  I just can’t help but wonder, why aren’t the modern feminists of today flocking to her aid?  After all, she is a woman being attacked and targeted often on the grounds of being a woman.  Hmmm, some interesting food for thought…
