In an interview on Fox News' "Hannity" set to air Monday, Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. Alaska time, Sean Hannity asked former Alaska governor Sarah Palin whether she will agree to be interviewed by Katie Couric if she runs for president in 2012. Palin -- who has often held up the 2008 interview with Couric as an example of media bias -- replied:

"As for doing an interview, though, with a reporter who already has such a bias against whatever it is that I would come out and say? Why waste my time? No."

"I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism, who, what, where, when, and why of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us."

"So a journalist, a reporter who is so biased and will, no doubt, spin and gin up whatever it is that I have to say to create controversy, I swear to you, I will not my waste my time with her. Or him."
