Sarah to Katie "Game On!"
Sarah Versus Katie Part Two: This time it's personal.
Sarah Palin is making clear that she's taking her upcoming battle with Katie Couric personally.
The former vice presidential candidate and current Fox News pundit is co-hosting "Today" on Tuesday, while Couric is guest hosting on arch-rival "Good Morning America" on ABC. It's being billed as the biggest showdown between the two women since Palin's infamous interviews with Couric in 2008, and it's at the epicenter of the raging news war between ABC News and NBC News.
Speaking to Breitbart News, Palin didn't shy away from addressing the Courice-shaped elephant in the room. "Game on," she said simply.
The Palin interviews are the defining journalistic moment for Couric; she won the prestigious Walter Cronkite Award for her questioning, and Palin's somewhat flustered answers are so famous that Matt Lauer even poked fun about them on Monday.
Palin has been very frank about her loathing of the interviews —and, by extension, Couric herself — over the years. In 2010, for instance, she called Couric "biased" and swore she would never be interviewed by her again.
She also mocked Couric when the latter left her post at CBS News.
