According to a statement released to TMZ, Oprah Winfrey will not be inviting Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin onto her show.
Ms. Winfrey’s statement was made on the heels of a Drudge Report report that “Oprah’s staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin…”
Here’s what Ms. Winfrey told TMZ:
The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.
