I can see Russia!… or in the alternate… Did ABC do a hit job on our Sarah?

[BTW, you can see our house on the left in this pic… [Maysman & Fuanglada]

—-Here is a taste of what ABC edited out of the initial Charles Gibson interview with our Sarah…

—There are some 300 islands along the chain that extend 1,200 miles from the Alaska Peninsula towards the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.  [Bet you did not know this little stat]

—-GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?

—-PALIN: They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska….

[Note: Joke alert… our Sarah is making a joke… ] [Note… THIS is where the editors at ABC cut… thus making our Sarah seem to make a naive silly remark… while if you listen to the rest, our Sarah is making a point about how small the world has become in this age… ]

What was cut follows…

GIBSON: What insight does that give you into what they’re doing in Georgia?

PALIN: Well, I’m giving you that perspective of how small our world is and how important it is that we work with our allies to keep good relation with all of these countries, especially Russia. We will not repeat a Cold War. We must have good relationship with our allies, pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it’s in their benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be getting along.

We cannot repeat the Cold War. We are thankful that, under Reagan, we won the Cold War, without a shot fired, also. We’ve learned lessons from that in our relationship with Russia, previously the Soviet Union.

We will not repeat a Cold War. We must have good relationship with our allies, pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it’s in their benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be getting along. [All cut from the initial interview clips]

—-You make the call if ABC did a hit job… You can see what else was cut at Newsbusters

  1. You know, I was NOT aware of all of this. Thanks for posting it, and the associated links – I’ll have to look at the full transcripts. (You might want to clarify in your post whether the bolded portions were edited out.)

    By the way, if you watched Larry King Live last night (Wednesday, 17 Sept) you would have seen the resident libs (Paul Begala and some other silly person) doing there best to make the quote about Russia being visible from parts of Alaska out to be demonstrable of Mrs. Palin’s complete incapacity to deal with foreign affairs.
