LL Cool J Calls Out Sarah Palin, Fox News

by at . Comments

Rapper-actor LL Cool J is far from pleased about what he describes as an old interview of his being lifted to promote Sarah Palin's interview special tonight.

Palin's Fox News special, entitled Real American Stories, features the former Governor chronicling lives of "people who have overcome adversity and more."

Among tonight's success stories: country star Toby Keith, former GE Chairman Jack Welch, a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor and LL Cool J.

The problem LL Cool J has with it? He never sat down with the show. Now the star of NCIS: Los Angeles, LL (James Todd Smith) tweeted on Wednesday:

"Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else and are now misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palin's Show. WOW."

Wow is right.

Real American Story or not, LL Cool J takes issue with tonight's show.

When contacted for comment, Fox News explained that LL Cool J had been informed in 2008 that the interview was planned as a segment for Real American Stories, though and the network couldn't have known Palin would be hosting in 2010.

The Fox spokesperson also said in a statement:

"Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and believe Mr. Smith's interview fit that criteria. However, it appears Mr. Smith doesn't want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, so we're cutting his interview and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."

Fledgling? Cold, Fox. Cold.

We suggest a true American hero take his place: Levi Johnston.


I was surprised and pleased to see she or someone else wrote talking points for her. When McCain selected her for his running mate, I thought he selected her because Hilary Clinton didn't get the VP spot when President Obama was elected. I knew it would back fire. That was a dumb move. Had anyone spoken with her prior to your nomination. I thought, "she is no Hilary Clinton". The woman doesn't have the caliber of intellect and sophistication to be Vice President. I can't stand to hear her speak.


I kind of feel sorry for this lady, although I have to give her credit for cashing on her fame while she can...well, before conservative America wakes up.




I'm not watching Sarah Palin on anything. That's my stance and I hope other will follow. These shows are all about the rating, so don't give them any and she will be gone. Do you really think she is going to have anything intelligent to say? She never has before.


Misrepresent,yeah that's Sarah. The more she talk the less she knows.I can easily believe that Bristol can Not wait for her to leave the house,so that she can breathe without hearing her rhetoric at home.Maybe she can get that old fossil from Arizona out of mothballs long enough to get him to appear on her show, the
two of them were hanging out last weekend like this was an election year. Fox had better have an iron clad contract with this airhead bubblebrain,because she has been known to quit her job with very short notice.


I love LL Cool J. Who doesn't? Good for him for telling it like it is.
