katie couric sarah palin Katie Couric, Alec Baldwin respond to Sarah Palin's 'Going Rogue'A representative for both Katie Couric and Alec Baldwin has responded to Sarah Palin’s characterizations of them in her upcoming book “Going Rogue.”

In her memoir, Palin talks about her guest-starring role on “Saturday Night Live.” She was in an episode that included Alec Baldwin, and says all her skit ideas were shot down. One idea was to do a skit based on how Alec Baldwin was supposed to leave the country after Bush was re-elected.

Baldwin’s rep Matt Hiltzik tells EW, “They nixed the joke because the underlying premise just wasn’t true,
because he had never said [that he was leaving the country].” Hiltzik also reps Katie Couric, whose September 2008 interview with Sarah Palin is largely regarded as the exposure that Palin was ill-informed and unprepared to hold the office of the Vice President. Hiltzik’s response that Katie Couric was “badgering” and had a “partisan agenda?”

“The interview speaks for itself.”

It most certainly does.
