Palin: Couric Had Low Self-Esteem

We have details! In her new memoir, Going Rogue, Sarah Palin says that Sen. John McCain's aides kept her “bottled up,” that Katie Couric was “badgering” and biased, and that Charlie Gibson wasn’t interested in “substantive issues.” Palin claims that she went on as a favor and that Couric suffers from low self-esteem. She also complains that the McCain campaign charged her $50,000 for the vetting she received. According to the Associated Press, “she was told McCain’s camp would have paid all the bills if he’d won; since he lost, the vetting legal bills were her responsibility.”
