Will They Claim: “What Newspapers Do You Read?” is a “Gotcha” Question?

As Governor Palin is sequestered at John McCain’s Sedona estate prepping for the upcoming debate, CBS released her latest Couric segment.


COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this – to stay informed and to understand the world?


PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media –


COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.


PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.


COURIC: Can you name any of them?


PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.


Palin also spoke with Republican radio host Hugh Hewitt.  Among the highlights:

SP: John McCain’s got some great ideas on granting authority, for instance, to the FDIC, making sure that our deposits are insured. He wants to increase that deposit insurance cap of all of our money, our savings, from $100,000 dollars up to $250,000 dollars, so that families like mine, so that we don’t have to worry about our money being safe or not under FDIC.

Uh, that’s a plan also offered by Obama.  Also:

HH: Do you think the mainstream media and the left understands your religious faith, Governor Palin?


SP: I think that there’s a lot of mocking of my personal faith, and my personal faith is very, very simple. I don’t belong to any church. I do have a strong belief in God, and I believe that I’m a heck of a lot better off putting my life in God’s hands, and saying hey, you know, guide me. What else do we have but guidance that we would seek from a Creator? That’s about as simple as it gets with my faith, and I think that there is a lot of mocking of that. And you know, so bet it, though I do have respect for those who have differing views than I do on faith, on religion. I’m not going to mock them, and I would hope that they would kind of I guess give me the same courtesy through this of not mocking a person’s faith, but maybe perhaps even trying to understand a little bit of it.


So there!
