Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin did not rule out hosting a political talk show and even suggested that mainstream shows like The View could use someone like her who is willing to “go rogue.”
Palin made her remarks in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter when the outlet asked if she had an “interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet”:
Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.
Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd recently exited the show after Barbara Walters retired, which left Whoopi Goldberg as the only permanent host remaining on the show.
