Want to see an awkward question? Here’s one now.
We get why he would WANT to ask such a question, especially in light of the recent Shake-up.
But did it seem a little bit leading to you? Almost like he was hoping to dig up some dirt on Fox?
At one point, he even said ‘I don’t want to be a jerk, but –‘
(Pro-tip: Generally, in life, if you have an urge to apologize for what you’re about to say BEFORE you say it? It’s a good idea to LISTEN to that voice of caution.)
Let’s get to the meat of it.
Jake gave Sarah the boilerplate praise of being a strong woman as a segue into the fact that she was a Fox News Contributor.
He asked if there needed to be a change in corporate culture.
Seriously Joe? At this point, would ANY guest on your show answer a resounding ‘no’ to that question?
He asked if she had ever been harassed like others have claimed to be.
“Did you ever witness or experience, God forbid, anything like that at Fox?” Tapper asked her.
“I, wouldn’t put up with anything that would be perceived as intimidating or harassing,” Palin replied.
“But you said your ‘former,’ so was that part of the reason you left?” Tapper pressed.
“Uhm,” she paused, “you can ask them why I’m no longer with Fox, uhm, y’know I’m not gonna speak for them. My contract wasn’t renewed, that’s um, that’s the line.” — Blaze
