Seems Sarah Palin's new show Real American Stories is advertising things that just aren't so. Rapper-actor LL Cool J says his participation in the show was bogus and because of a twitter Posting the actor made, Fox news has elected to take him out of the advertising of the show. That twitter stated "Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palin's Show. WOW."
"Contrary to what was reported, LL Cool J was never scheduled to be a guest on 'Real American Stories' with Sarah Palin this week," Rhett Usry, the artist's spokesman, said in a statement on Wednesday. "The show had planned to use an interview from 2008 that was being reproposed without LL's permission."
"This statement is not a reflection of any feelings LL has toward Fox News or Ms. Palin, whom he has never met, rather a clarification of what we have seen published in the media."
Fox news did say in a statement released to the media "'Real American Stories' features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith's interview fits that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith ( LL Cool J) 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."
Ummm yeah. I would want permission too before a News channel re-released an interview I did.
