ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY

Sarah Palin said she would never be a part of the “lamestream” media, but this week she’s using her political clout to choose sides in a different kind of war: morning news ratings. NBC’s Today Show announced Palin will be a special one-day co-host on Tuesday. Palin weighed in on the announcement.

“No matter what it is that we discuss, somehow it’s gonna kind of turn into a bit of a political discussion. It’s just absolutely paramount right now that people pay attention to what’s going on in our country.”

But the Twitter buzz isn’t exactly in Palin’s favor:

@Justin_Stangel BREAKING: “Sarah Palin to guest host NBC's Today Show.” Man, I hope that’s an April Fools joke

@JuceeRob Sarah Palin will co-host "Today" this Tuesday. Is that one of the signs of the apocalypse?


The move puts Palin in direct competition with Katie Couric’s weeklong guest-host run on Good Morning America. Couric will be keeping the desk warm for Robin Roberts. A blogger for the Washington Post says Today Show producers must be...

“...working madly to keep [Couric] from breaking their more than 16-year weekly ratings winner streak.”

Palin says she’s up for the challenge. The former Alaskan governor and current Fox News contributor told Breitbart News:

"I see this as a good opportunity to bring an independent, common-sense conservative perspective to NBC. We’re 'going rogue' and infiltrating some turf for a day.”

The competition is even more heated considering Couric’s infamous interviews with Palin during the 2008 presidential election. CNN reminds us:

“Among the details revealed in the course of those interviews was the fact that candidate Palin could not name a single newspaper or magazine that she regularly read.”

As if having Palin on the show wasn’t shaking things up enough, NBC also announced Ryan Seacrest will join the program for a special announcement Tuesday. Media outlets speculate he could be replacing Matt Lauer as co-host.
