Fox News host Greta Van Susteren has landed the first post-election interview with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the network said Friday.
The host of "On the Record" flew to Alaska Friday, where she'll interview the onetime Republican vice presidential nominee on Sunday and Monday. The taped interview will air on her Monday program.
Palin is granting the interview after being been pummeled in the media for the last several days by unnamed aides to Sen. John McCain, who claim that she made exorbitant clothing expenditures beyond what had been previously reported and lacked basic knowledge of world affairs.
Van Susteren has come to her defense, objecting to the anonymous bashing of the Alaska governor. "The sniping at Gov. Palin after the election by 'anonymous' sources is rotten," she wrote on her blog Friday.
