CBS To Air More Footage Of Couric Interviewing Palin This Week

TPM - Greg Sargent

A CBS source confirms to me that more footage of Sarah Palin being interviewed by Katie Couric will indeed air this week, in advance of the debate.

The question of whether there's more footage of Couric talking to Palin arose this morning after Howard Kurtz published a column with this buried at the end:

And the worst may be yet to come for Palin; sources say CBS has two more responses on tape that will likely prove embarrassing.

The CBS source clarifies to me that these taped responses from Palin are not a part of the big trainwreck interview that aired last week.

Rather, the source says, in addition to the big interview, Couric also interviewed Palin as part of its Vice Presidential Questions series, in which the same questions were also posed to Joe Biden.

Couric's interviews with both Veep contenders will air on Wednesday and Thursday. I couldn't verify Kurtz's contention that Palin's answers will "likely prove embarrassing," but we now know that they will definitely air.
