Sarah Palin Gives Oprah Her Highest Ratings In Two Years reports:

    Oprah Winfrey's interview with former vp candidate Sarah Palin scored the talk show host her highest rating in two years.    Monday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" drew a 8.7 household rating and 13 share -- the best since Oprah had the entire Osmond family on the show in 2007.   That means Palin also topped Oprah's heavily viewed interviews with Whitney Houston at the start of the season.

Confirmed: Newsweek Cover of Palin Is Sexist, So Says -- Media Matters???

I kid you not! Media Matters for America, the left-wing organization that is Soros-funded and Clinton backed, has called out Newsweek on its blatant sexism in putting a cheesecake Palin photo on its front cover:

Sexism and media bias all rolled into one one big stinky ball journalistic liberal activism. The Media Matters story is headlining the links over at memeorandum:

From Media Matters:
There are a lot of legitimate reasons to criticize Sarah Palin, her new book, and her policies, but you don't have to stoop to sexism to do it. Newsweek's November 23 issue, however, does just that by publishing on its cover a photo of Palin in short running shorts and a fitted top, leaning against the American flag. Making matters worse is the equally offensive headline Newsweek editors chose to run alongside the photo -- "How Do You Solve a Problem like Sarah?" -- presumably a reference to the Sound of Music song, "Maria," in which nuns fret about "how" to "solve a problem like Maria," a "girl" who "climbs trees" and whose "dress has a tear."
Like her or not, Palin is a former governor and vice presidential candidate. She deserves the same respect every single one of her male counterparts receives when they are featured on the cover of the magazine. I must have missed the cover of Vice President Joe Biden in short shorts or of Mitt Romney in a bathing suit.
Newsweek's sexist treatment of Palin doesn't get any better inside its pages. The mag ran this photo to lead off its "Features" section, which focused on Palin:

Then, for no apparent reason, illustrating Christopher Hitchens' piece on "Palin's base appeal," Newsweek ran a picture of this disgusting Sarah Palin-as-a-slutty-schoolgirl doll:

What kind of message is the magazine trying to send here?
There's more, but wow. Never thought I would agree, and link, to anything MM has to say, especially in regards to Palin. It is true that even a broken clock is correct twice a day.
