UPDATE:McCain and Palin Not To Appear on Larry King Live Or Maybe They Are

BREAKING NEWS 20:30 pm-CNN HAS UPDATED THEIR WEBSITE AND IS NOW STATING THE FOLLOWING:

John McCain and Sarah Palin – are they the perfect presidential ticket or a political odd couple? In a today’s joint appearance, Palin takes questions from voters for the first time! How did she do? Larry’s political strategists with analysis!”

—Confusing writing from CNN marketing department. So the show is just about them. Why won’t they go on Larry King LIve? If Michael Jackson went on the show after the child molestation charges were filed against him, McCain and Palin could face Larry King!
——
All Is Not forgiven

NEW YORK (RUSHPRNEWS) 7:30 pm.  – it’s confirmed, it would have been too great but contrary to an earlier RushPRNews’ report McCain and Palin are not to appear Larry King Live Tonight.  Larry King, the host of one of the most successful and enduring talk show of all times, is hosting an open-mike for callers to discuss the case of McCain and Palin. But no live appearance of this politicial duo.

All is NOT forgiven.  It appears that the reporter was misinformed and that the McCain’s camp has not forgiven CNN for asking the questions that need to be asked during a political campaign for the presidency.  So no chitchat with Larry tonight for McCain and his VP. Stay tuned.

CNN Headline: McCain and Palin on Larry King Live Tonight – Political Hot Ticket or Odd Couple

Angry McCain Cancelled Previously Scheduled Interview

By Anne Howard

NEW YORK(RUSHPRNEWS)09/17/2008Round one: John McCain and Sarah Palin – are they the perfect presidential ticket or a political odd couple? How is Palin, the newest candidate holding up on a national playing field? Will Palin be able to tackle hard political questions? Will they even be asked? Tonight’s appearance by the McCain and Palin duo comes as a surprise following McCain’s previous show of anger at CNN ,for what he considered hard-line questioning about Palin’s political experience.

Round two: McCain was previously scheduled to appear on Larry King Live but cancelled a scheduled interview with Larry King due to an unfriendly segment on September 1 on CNN — the segment we flagged where the network’s Campbell Brown grilled McCain spokesperson Tucker bounds over Sarah Palin’s lack of foreign policy experience. CNN reported that the McCain campaign complained that Campbell Brown’s grilling of Tucker Bounds over Sarah Palin’s lack of foreign policy experience was “over the line.”

One wonders what Larry King’s producers had to promise the McCain camp to make this interview happen. The audience will see tonight if CNN dares to impose some level of journalistic rigor to its news programming, at the risk of encountering McCain’s furor again. The audience is invited to send in their questions by email to CNN.

For 50 years, King has consistently made headlines with such high-profile guests as Tony Blair, Marlon Brando, George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush, President George W. Bush and Laura Bush, Johnny Carson, Jimmy Carter and Roslyn Carter, Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bette Davis, Sammy Davis Jr., Mark “Deep Throat” Felt, Gerald Ford and Betty Ford, Jackie Gleason, Mikhail Gorbachev, Billy Graham, Audrey Hepburn, Bob Hope, L.Ron Hubbard, Michael Jordan, Bobby Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ken Lay, Monica Lewinsky, Madonna, Sir Paul McCartney, Richard Nixon and Pat Nixon, Al Pacino, Marianne Pearl, Prince, Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan, Eleanor Roosevelt, Pete Rose, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Martha Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, Margaret Thatcher, Oprah Winfrey and Malcolm X.
