Fox News recently announced that the first installment of its Real American Stories series hosted by Sarah Palin, will air on April 1st. The series will feature interviews with Toby Keith, Jack Welch, and rapper LL Cool J. Wait, what? LL on Sarah Palin’s show?
Well it turns out that uncle Todd never gave Palin an interview. The interview was from 2008 and for a completely different purpose, according to LL’s Twitter page:
Let me guess, the producers of this series realized that the lineup was all lily white and decided to at least pretend that they care about minorities. No worries. “Hey intern, run to the basement and grab the first black person Q & A reel you can find.” Problem solved.
In the spirit of fairness here’s Fox’s slightly retarded response:
“Real American Stories” features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith’s interview fit that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career.
