Campbell Brown: Is Sarah Palin A Real Candidate?

Last updated: September 25, 2008

The McCain Campaign has been "hiding" Sarah Palin from the press. Uncharacteristically, the VP nominee is being kept away from the press and refuses to answer any question. She has not held a single press conference since her nomination while the interviews she has given so far were devoided of challenging questions. In this video, Campbell Brown, a prominent American news anchor asks the McCain campaign to stop shielding Gov. Sarah Palin from the members of the press.

Video Transcript

CNN's Campbell Brown: "Bear with me for a short rant on another subject - because frankly I have had it! And I know a lot of women out there are with me on this.

I have had enough of the sexist treatment of Sarah Palin, it has to end. She was here in NYC today meeting with world leaders at the UN. And what did the McCain campaign do? They tried to ban reporters from covering those meetings. And they did ban reporters from asking any Governor Palin questions.

Tonight I call on the McCain campaign to stop treating Sarah Palin like she is a delicate flower that will wilt at any moment," said Brown. "This woman is from Alaska from crying out loud. She is strong. She is tough. She is competent. And you claim she is ready to be one heart beat away form the presidency. If that is the case, then end this chauvinistic treatment of her now. Allow her to show her stuff. Allow her to face down those pesky reporters... Let her have a real news conference with real questions. By treating Sarah Palin different from the other candidates in this race, you are not showing her the respect she deserves. Free Sarah Palin. Free her from the chauvinistic chain you are binding her with. Sexism in this campaign must come to an end. Sarah Palin has just as much a right to be a real candidate in this race as the men do. So let her act like one."
