Palin TV special

After an uproar by two big-name subjects of canned interviews, Sarah Palin's first TV special aired Thursday on Fox News Channel.
During "Real American Stories," the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate narrated heart-tugging profiles of Americans overcoming adversity and helping others.
"Heroism, courage, generosity and a warrior spirit - these are things that unite all Americans," said Palin, clad in a bright red blazer, at the top of the hour.
Stories included that of George Weiss, a wealthy businessman who helps prepare underprivileged students for college and pays for their education. After the profile, Palin introduced her studio audience to a group of grade-school students being helped by Weiss' Say Yes to Education Foundation.
