Obama-backer Oprah says no Sarah Palin on her TV show

Oprah Winfrey, the billionaire TV talk-show diva who is supporting the Democratic presidential nominee, says she will Oprah Winfrey supports Barack Obama for the presidency and campaigned for him but now prohibits the Republican female vice president Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska from being on her widely-watched TV shownot allow the Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin on her daily show, which is widely viewed by women.

The 44-year-old Palin is the first female nominee on a Republican presidential ticket in the party's 164-year history, though she is little-known outside Alaska, where she was elected a reform governor in 2006.

Palin, a former high school basketball star and beauty pageant contestant, is the mother of five, an outdoorswoman and part owner in her husband Todd's commercial fishing business.

This past year Oprah endorsed Barack Obama for president. It was the first time she bAlaska Governor Sarah Palin the first female on a national Republican Party ticket in historyecame publicly involved in politics.

Oprah emceed numerous rallies for the freshman Democrat senator in key caucus and primary states, drawing large crowds, donations, media coverage and many new volunteers. She also hosted a lucrative fundraiser at one of her homes, near Santa Barbara. But she has so many we can't count 'em.

Oprah's political involvement, as noted previously by...

...The Ticket, hurt her in TV ratings, though she remains clearly the most-watched such show.

Many commentors on Ticket items expressed resentment that Winfrey, who made her fortune off appealing to women, would desert the first serious female candidate to vie for her party's nomination, Hillary Clinton, another Democrat, in favor of a male candidate, Obama. She also did not have Clinton on her program during the campaign.

TMZ, the widely-read celebrity website, asked Winfrey about having Palin on her program to describe her life and views to other American women.

In a post earlier today, TMZ said Winfrey replied, "There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show."

According to TMZ, Winfrey also said: "At the beginning of this presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates."

Winfrey also said she would "love" to have the Republican candidate on her show, but only after the Nov. 4 election, which pits the Illinois Democrat Obama against Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain.

Winfrey has had Obama on her program two previous times, in January 2005 and again in the fall of 2006 shortly before he announced his presidential candidacy.

What do Ticket readers think? Is this fair? Would you watch an Oprah show with Palin and/or Obama? Do you still watch Oprah's program in the first place?

Looks like Oprah is just another bigoted racist black like Barack Hussein Obama.

Oprah's fifteen minutes of fame has lasted longer than expected. I expect however that after the election and her buddy Obama is whipped, she will be begging for Sarah Barracuda. But Sarah will blow her off as insignificant and Oprah will have to settle for Ellen.

Hey! Oprah has entered politics and endorsed Obama. She and the stars are in the game. And the game is get Obama in the White House. It doesn't matter to her that she professes to be for woman. She has shown what her agenda is. Come on Opraha, quit the charade.

Kudos to Oprah for having the integrity to not allow this woman on her couch. She (Palin) condones the aerial slaughter of wolves, which in itself should show any intelligent person that she is totally off the mark in terms of being in touch with life.She ridiculed Obama in her speech when he had enough integrity no not dis her daughter when given the chance..
She is a heartless, dangerous person. A step backwards for women and the country. Shame on McCain for choosing a trophy running mate.

Having Palin on her show doesn't mean she endorses her, it just means she is willing to interview or just talk with the first female VP candidate in how long????? Say what you want about Palin, but I think she's very dynamic and can definitely get the job done, How many woman can say that? I think the only ones that don't see her as a valid candidate are jealous or envious or whatever words you want to use. I would like to hear a valid reason why not Palin. People are always going to find something bad to say about anyone running for President, VP or any other office of this significance. I say if you think you can do it any better, you run.

I'm actually surprised that Oprah is not willing to have Governor Palin on her show. Why wouldn't she want to participate in this historic election? She should have all of the candidates, not their spouses, on her program.

It's great that she openly supports Senator Obama, but to be considered anything more than the anti-O'Riley, she should give equal time to equal candidates.

I'm just surprised a woman who has built an empire taking advantage of the ignored masses, would squander this opportunity to ask (or have her audiance ask) the questions they want to hear the candidates answer.

If you ask me, if I were in Oprah's audience, I'd rather be surprised by an impromtu Q&A with Governor Palin than a free D&G handbag. But then again, I'm one of those community organizers Governor Palin spits on, so I have a ton of questions.

Oprah is showing her true color for all to see. How we all view her from now on has changed. I predict her ratings will drop as she loses some of her audience. I also predict her staunch supporters will get louder. Did she come out and back a politician for colorful reasons? Was she racially motivated? I don't fault her if so...but she needs to get real about it.
Most white people think OJ was guilty while most of our black people say he wasn't. We defend our own but we fail to realize that our own is more than black it is American. In this upcoming election we have more white people crossing over the race line and showing support of Obama than we have black people stepping over and supporting McCain. Granted most brothers and sisters believe the Democratic party was annointed by the Lord to help black people whiel the devil is funding the Republican party...but this is hogwash. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.
Martin Luther King said he was longing for the day when we will judge someone by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. I am ashamed that black people are showing stronger bias than many white people. I say this because many want a brother in th White House more than they want the right person. Sure i would like to see a black man in the White House...but a qualified one. To support Obama is to show ignorance of what is really important. This half-brother is not qualified and will make us look silly so lets wait for a better option and then we can rock the house. Wake up brothers and sisters...it ain't just about color anymore...its about our country!

Please pray and ask the Lord who to Vote for this election as it is important. I'm an african american female and I am voting for McCain and I am in favor of Palin as well. I think they are better suited for the job and the proof is in the pudding. Too many african americans are voting senselessly for O'Bama simply because he's black and for no other reason. I am choosing to use my head and sensitivity to the Lord this election and not be driven by emotions. Please do the same.

Blessings~

SHAME ON YOU, WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT YOU HAVE BECOME.
IT IS SO SAD THAT WHEN A PERSON LIKE YOURSELF HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO UNITE ALL PEOPLE FROM EVERY WALK OF LIFE BY BRINGING FORWARD, VIA
THE VAST VIEWING AUDIENCE OF A HIGHLY RATED AND RESPECTED TV SHOW, INSTEAD DECIDES ONLY TO
USE THE INFLUENCE OF YOUR SHOW AND EVERYTHING IT REPRESENTS MERELY TO EXPRESS YOUR OWN PERSONAL VIEWS (OF WHICH YOU ARE ENTITLED TO AS A VOTER ) BUT SURELY SHOULD NOT BE USED TO DESCRIMINATE AGAINST SEX, RACE , COLOR OR CREED.
I REALLY THINK YOU HAVE FOGOTTEN WHERE YOU HAVE COME FROM AND WHAT YOUR YOUR SHOW IS REALLY SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT WHICH IS MUCH BIGGER AND MORE IMPORANT THAN ANY PERSON AND ESPECIALLY THEIR PERSONAL BELIEFS.

I TRUELY THOUGHT YOUR SHOW AND WHAT YOU REPRESENT WAS REALLY FOR ALL OF THE PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND WOULD NEVER BE USED MERELY FOR POLITICAL EXPRESSION.

RESPECTFULLY VERY DISAPPOINTED,

R. J. MOORE,SR.




Oprah has been using her stage for her own personal platform for a while now. The only thing she is committed to is having the world embrace her opinions weather political, religious, or personal as their own! Wake up Oprah it is NOT all about you. Go back to doing a showand a magazine and all the other things you do, in a way that presents all opinions not just your own. Sadly you have turned out to be what you despised in others. You had such a chance to make a difference and you did for so long, but then you got FULL of YOURSELF so we will stop listening to you just like we have the others before you!

Sarah is the real deal. A person of integrity who walks her talk. No one will agree with everything any candidate says, but for Opra to use her show to support the black candidate and to tell another candidate, a woman no less, that she can come on the show AFTER the election is a racist and anti feminine declaration. This is just annother example of the fact that the Democrats OWN THE MEDIA.
Notice how the media avoids all the informaiton we have on Obama and his years of work with Willian Ayers and Bernadette Dorn, admitted USA terrorists.
Notice how the media ignores Obama's 20+ year relationship with Super Racist Reverend Wright
notice how the media focuses on Sara's 17 year old daughter.
This can only be ansered by a boycott of the show and of her sponsors.
hit her and them in their pocket book where it will hurt.

Oprah is a talk show host. She has the right to choose who she wants to endorse, support, whatever. Oprah is a woman, and yes she is black. but I'm sure she's done her homework and didn't support Obama solely on race (this election isn't about black or white, man or woman, its about the LEADER OF OUR COUNTRY!) Palin is a joke as a VP candidate. McCain could have chosen many other more qualified women (they do exist, Hillary isn't the only experienced female politician) but he didn't because he figured any old woman would do, and that the women of America would be stupid enough to buy into it. Stop being mad at Oprah and her personal choices, be mad at McCain for insulting your intelligence! Palin is not a feminist, she doesn't support women's rights, family's rights, etc. Ladies, lets do our homework on Palin before we jump behind the 1st set of ovaries on a ticket, and condemn anyone who doesn't do the same.

Well how soon the chikens cme home to roost. If the great one was on what happens to being fair I guess wh you are afraid the truth comes out. I do not think it is a matter of reading a tleprompter what happend to Obamma when his went out AH AH Wll Ah Ah I did not hear that from VP Elect Palin HA HA the day is going to come in November when you can cry in your own defeat America has made many rich that hate America Funny how that is.............

It's her show. If she doesn't want to use it as a political platform, so be it, but don't try to make her out as an antagonist. She hasn't had any political guests throughout this election process, so she is being fair.

I'm glad that Oprah decided not to have Sarah Palin on her show. It just shows her up for what she reallly is. She doesn't really care about women's issues. She's made millions and millions off of white women, yet she doesn't have the nerve to have a strong white woman on her show. It's her right, but it's my right to have an opinion about it. Sarah is too good to be on her show. Thank God Oprah is showing her true 'colors'.

So Palin cannot win votes for McCain without Oprah. These people is making Palin looking stupid that she wants to be in the show no matter if they harass the host.

The Show is not a political show. She endorsed Obama as a person not as a host of the Show.

She doesnt want any politics in her show especially now that it's campaign months if that was the case Obama should have been in every Oprah show until election day if she wants her show to be politicize.

Oprah is truly a racist. She's made her living mostly off middle class white women. I THINK EVERYONE WHO THINKS OPRAH IS TREATING SARAH PALIN IN A RACIST MANNER SHOULD CONTACT HER SPONSORS AND DEMAND THAT THEY DROP THEIR ADVERTISING FROM HER SHOW. THAT IS MOST DEFINITELY MY NEXT E-MAIL, CALLS AND LETTERS.

LET'S DO IT!!

I will never watch Oprah again.

I will never watch Oprah again.

Just goes to show you that Oprah is more racist than people know, why else would she have been a member of Jeremiah Wright's church. She let the Obamas both on her show but says no to a white politician, right out of the Wright playbook

I don't understand what this has to do with racism. Not only is that line a lame one, it's unfounded. Oprah endorsed her support for BHO early on and has campaigned for him. So she reserves the right to use her show for whatever platform she desires.


Furthermore, Pitbull needs to make her rounds on the Sunday shows so we know where she stands on issues out side of Alaska. But we know the real reason why, her lack of domestic and world affairs will be under scrutiny, vetted and questioned, and her lack of qualifications will be on display.

Having her near the white house or on a ticket is an insult to the USA. she's a joke.

Someone said its not like oprie is a political show, so why should they have Palin. Interesting logic to say the least. How about oprie not use her show as a political tool for the democrats? And if she chooses to do so then give Palin equal time? On second thought, why would Palin want to be on a soap opera anyway. I'm just glad the public is finally seeing thru oprie. She is flaming lib who pretends to be a Christian. I say she is a phony.

Oprah is not a racist. She is proud to be black but there is a difference. She doesn't want Palin on her show for political reasons, and yes she is using her show as a platform. I am extremely confused on how she gets the basis to say she is not. It is her right to exclude anyone from her show. That is just the way it is. I agree with Oprah if she doesn't want to deal with this, however she has probably gone about this political situation all wrong. However you know Palin will probably be on her show and the ratings will be through the roof.

There is just one thing in common between Sarah and Oprah, the letter H at the end of her names and that's it. The media is fighting for having Sarah and Oprah says I don't want to have a political game in my program, and for me and everyone that's the famous BS

I am like most women I know. I would not kill my child because it had down's. I believe that my marriage is Godly and I do Not support GAY marriage. I hunt and have a loaded 38 in my house for protection against crack heads who may decide to kick in my door in the middle of the night. These are REAL women values. None of which Oprah will have any part of. If you are not gay, black, or think God Fearing is weak, then Oprah doesn't want you. Palin would only degrade herself by going on such an immoral show. Please people, leave it alone. Palin deserves better.
Where was Oprah in defending Black Women when Whoopi acted then, which Mrs. Obama laughed at?? I bet Gov. Palin would have stuck up for women instead of what Michele did.

Who is Oprah?

I have watched OPRAH in all the years she has been on television. I have followed her from when she was a newscaster to her own show and have not missed 1 of her shows. I believed that Oprah is a good example of what women could be. But after hearing that she wouldn't interview Sarah Palin for for whatever reason, makes me a NON OPRAH fan. I am dissappointed in her actions and feel that it was "UNFAIR" on her part. Even though she has only interviewed Obama before he was a candidate and not after doesn't make it right. She campaigns for Obama which is obvious, but to be "FAIR" is to give Sarah Palin a voice also. That doesn't mean because she has her on the show, she has to vote for her. This, in my opinion, is wrong. I understand that
it is Oprah's show ans she can interview whomever she wants, but to not give the Republican viewer she has a chance with hear her interview with Palin is wrong.

Oprah doesn't have to vote for Palin, but she should at least give her the respect the she gives Obama.

So moving forward, in disbelief, I now refuse to watch or tape any of her shows.

A now NON OPRAH FAN

-->> OPRAH IS A RACIST! <<--

Won't let Hillary Clinton on her show when she was running against Obama and now, Sarah Palin. Of course, she's gonna favor Obama just because he's black. Oprah is a big time racist!

It doesn't matter though. McCain and Palin does not need Oprah to win.

I have not watched Oprah or supported any of her commerce since she anointed Barock Obama. Oprah is an entertainer, when she took a public political stand on that level I left the Church of Oprah.

Oprah has been out of touch with middle America and women for years. The woman didn't even know how to pump gas!! She now leads an insular life. Entertainers should just entertain and keep their political views to themselves.

Oprah Winfrey afraid of interviewing Gov. Sarah Palin on her show--who would ever have thought? Has she lost trust in the American viewing public that has blessed her with top ratings and her billionaire fortune?

Look inside, Oprah. You know the nanosecond you crossover from this plane what really matters.

Don't your loyal viewers deserve to see Sarah Palin discuss life and politics with you?

It's about trust, Oprah.

Oprah's true color is coming out...

Let's see....Oprah is an advocate for women and their issues, but only when it agrees with her personal endorsements. She is clearly putting race above feminism in this instance. While I can understand that "in fairness" she might not want to have either candidate on her show during the campaign, she has already given too much air time and endorsements to both Obama and his wife so is it really "fair" that she doesn't do same for McCain/Palin. Oprah could and should have at a minimum invite spouse Todd Palin on the show. How fabulous an example is Palin's husband -- a modern man who is supportive of his wife's career and takes responsibility in their household. But Oprah isn't really this forward thinking because she is part of the mainstream media elite. However, in the long run, it really doesn't matter what Oprah or any of the Hollywood stars or media say. My vote will trump them all come election day.

yes, it's her show, but so much for supporting women. not to have Hillary or Palin on her show is a joke. This is a historic election in terms of race and gender. I'm no Obama supporter, but it speaks volumes about how far this country has come. And to have TWO women THISCLOSE to the most powerful office in the world, is no less ground-breaking, yet the queen of afternoon television, under the guise of not using her show as a platform, keeps these two women off. Sure, they can go elsewhere, but Oparh attracts millions of women who, for whatever reason, might not tune into the evening news shows. Sorry, Oprah lovers, if I'm in her shoes, I'm CELEBRATING this accomplishment.

Maybe it hasn't occurred to some, but it's just possible that you can make your choice of candidate to support, not based on the usual loyalties people break their decisions down into: "Gender" or "Race" or even "Party", but decide based on real study of the issues. How many of you actually spend the time to do real research? To weigh the positions of the candidates based on understanding of the facts underlying the issues? Hilary Clinton is a woman, but she is allied with the big Washington Insider machine, with a lot of corporate power behind her. She impulsively voted for a war that has caused the deaths of a lot of our young men, while Al Qaeda still runs around virtually unchecked in Afghanistan. It is important to look at a candidate's voting record and their previous stances on issues too. Sarah Palin, for example, is anti-choice, but she used line item veto to eliminate funding in a bill for a center in Alaska that supports young teenagers while they go through their pregnancies, then get training and support to get jobs. Young POOR teenagers. Bristol Palin has her comfortably well-off parents to support her while she "makes the right decision", but what about poor teenagers? What if their parents are actually not taking care of them, or even beating them, or want them to have abortions? Then where do they go? Sarah Palin and her husband also have a past history of belonging to an Alaskan party that wanted to secede from the US. Is this patriotic loyalty we want in our candidates? Todd Palin is a former Oil Company employee as well. He left his company "on leave" when it appeared there might be conflict of interest issues. Hmmmm...
All I'm saying here is, do a little research, make informed decisions, not ones based on blind automatic loyalties. And consider the possibility that Oprah is actually making her decisions after carefully considering all the positions, and all the available facts, not based on blind loyalties! And of course, she has not had any candidate on the show when they were actually a candidate, and she has a right to decide she doesn't want her show to be a platform!

You bet Oprah can have whomever she wants on show.....
and I can switch her off, never read books she recommends, cancel a subscription to her magazine etc.

bye bye Oprah.
Obama's yesterday's news and so is Oprah

OH, Oprah, You wouldn't be supporting Obama just because he is black, would you? You wouldn't have Palin on your show because you are afraid of her, would you? It is the American people that made you, not Obama. It just shows your true colors - black,ungrateful, and unfair!!

She can't go on there anyway. She can't answer questions. She can only read from prepared scripts. Also Oprah has the right to have or not have who she wants or doesn't want. It is her show.
I don't watch Oprah and haven't for some time. I think she is a good person with a good heart. I love the fact that she is her own woman. I just don't agree with some of her thinking.

Oprah isn't putting Palin on because she's protecting Obama and her own personal interest. Oprah knows that Sarah Palin outshines both Obama and Biden.

I was shocked to hear that Oprah refused to have Sarah Palin appear on her show, or at least not let her appear until after the election. As a 18 year old young woman and a registered voter, as well as a previous Oprah viewer, I feel this is not right. This is the first female nominee on a Republican presidential ticket in the party's 164-year history, a historic event that should be shown to all viewers of Oprah, regardless of political affiliation. As a talk show host, she must realize she has a duty to show the world both sides. I hope she realizes what she has done, because I have now decided to cease watching Oprah.

I think Oprah has the right to have who ever she wants on her show. I won't ever watch her again though. Actually, Palin doesn't need to be on her show anyway. "You go girl" as Oprah would say....I have no respect for you anymore.

Thank God, Oprah don't want Mrs. Palin on her show. Mrs Palin does not need the racist, Oprah, spewing nasty remarks about Palin's family and trying to score points for her racist buddy, Obama. Mrs. Palin has too much class to appear on Oprah's failing program. That would only drag the winning McCain/Palin ticket down to Obama's dirt level.

I think Oprah has the right to have who ever she wants on her show. I won't ever watch her again though. Actually, Palin doesn't need to be on her show anyway. "You go girl" as Oprah would say....I have no respect for you anymore.

Sarah is not going to be allowed to talk to the media so she won't be allowed to go on Oprah's show anyway. If if she were allowed it would take months to prepare her for that and right now they are trying get her prepared for debates, etc. She has a lot to learn since she knows nothing about foreign policy, etc.

Oprah can do whatever she wants--it's her show!

I have not watched Oprah for a long time. I quit when she decided that i should have the same religion as her. It is her business what she does, but don't tell me what to do. I really, really hope that Sarah Palin will not do the Oprah show even if she is asked. There are many other talk shows that would be better for her! As I said I have not watched for several years and i have not missed it at all. Sheis just to racist for me. If palin were black she would have her on in a second!!!
I was sickened when I saw her on the news sobbing and crying for Obama in her skybox at the DNC!!!! She needs to get help!

good for oprah....

It boils down to fear, or hate, to not have Palin on.

If a show host has a chance to invite any candidate for the Vice Presidency, or Presidency of a nation like the United States, they are off their rocker.

The political position is too great, to ignore the opportunity, no matter the party.

It's not identical to a White House invitation, but it remiinds me of how if the President of the United States invites you to the White House, you just don't decline, even if that President is of a different political party. It would be a breach of protocol.

To avoid going the extra mile to invite all 4 main candidates, is also a breach of protocol. It does not matter whose show it is. It's a manners and customs thing.

For that reason, I believe that Oprah either has a fear of Palin, or a hate for Palin. And it may be that Oprah has fear that Palin will overshadow and shine more than Obama.

Fear is sand in the machinery of life.

When Oprah made her statement “I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates” she didn’t know that Sarah Palin would be on the VP ticket. However at that time it was common knowledge that Senator Obama and Senator Clinton, although they hadn’t made the official announcement, were in the race for the 2008 Presidency. Oprah has demonstrated extensive support Senator Obama. Therefore I can only conclude that she has set certain priorities in her life, being that women are second to black Americans.
