Was Tina Fey Censored by PBS?
Tina Fey accepted a Mark Twain award with her signature sense of humor, but why was only part of her speech was aired on PBS? INSIDE EDITION has the story that is raising questions.
Tina Fey accepted the Mark Twain prize for American humor at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
"I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn't thank Sarah Palin for helping get me here tonight," said Fey.
It sounds like a gracious acceptance speech, but did it get a little political airbrushing before it was aired by PBS?
Here's what Fey said that didn't make the Sunday night broadcast.
"The success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women. Except of course for those who will end up paying for their own rape kit. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know what? Actually, I take it back. The whole thing is a disaster."
PBS says it was not censorship, just routine editing caused by time constraints. PBS later posted her entire speech on its website, and released this statement.
"It was not a political decision. We snipped from everyone." (Source: Peter Kaminsky, Executive Producer)
