Sarah Palin was considered to be the thorn in John McCain’s side during the 2008 presidential election following a series of disastrous interviews. Palin is especially bitter about the interview conducted by CBS News lead anchor Katie Couric, and recently claimed that she would boycott Couric and others in the “lamestream media” if she decides to run in 2012. Palin’s move is an obvious strategy to control her image, but many wonder if it would actually pay off in the long run.

Discussion Questions:

1.  What is the rationale behind Palin’s strategy to boycott certain major players in the news media?

3.  Will Palin’s strategy backfire? Why, or why not?
