In this article, Sarah Palin is said to be near reaching terms on a reality show.
The show is meant to be a travelogue of Sarah Palin's Alaska, but I'm cynical about the media's willingness or likelihood to show her as an intelligent person. I also would prefer she kept narrowly focused on things political, rather than currying a hollywood-type persona.
The cockeyed optimist in me wants to think that she can turn around a lot of people's preconceived notions about her as empty-headed, as abetted by the likes of SNL. I suppose we shall see...
There's tons of money, and exposure, in reality shows. I'm sure there will be some snarky comments about the show, but copywriting and other things will prevent the likes of MSNBCBSABCSNL from stealing snippets and using them without permission. It will enfuriate these borgs, although it won't stop them from showing the part of their anatomy from which comes their inspiration.
The war has begun and the enemy is already fighting a defensive war from their ivory towers. Their downfall will be glorius. I wait for the day when Couric is portrayed as a money grubbing wanna-be that makes millions while the dowtrodden reporters suffer.
I don't even want to guess what she will end up with... and yes, they definitely DON'T want to present her as anything positive... dammit...
On the other hand, Ronny Reagan gained a lot of his popularity, and made some political points, by hosting GE theater back in the day. Positive exposure, whether accurate or not, seems to be the name of the game; witness the election of "the one", whose attributes were completely fabricated by a fawning media.
