2008_09_palinabc.jpgABC News has seemingly won the Sarah Palin interview sweepstakes, with the Republican vice presidential candidate agreeing to an interview with Charlie Gibson (timing TBD). The McCain-Palin campaign has denied that it is shielding the Alaska governor from the press, instead claiming that the media has been sexist and unkind in its scrutiny of Palin and saying she would be interviewed when "news media is going to treat her with some level of respect and deference." (Um, McCain campaign--please watch this Daily Show clip!) Related: Some Republican women are upset that Oprah won't interview Palin!
