'Truly sick': Palin rips CBS for mocking disabled vets

Sarah Palin Lashes Out at 'Evil' Sacha Baron Cohen Over Prank Interview for Showtime Series 'Who Is America?'

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said she had been "duped" into traveling "across the country" for a spoof interview with British actor Sacha Baron Cohen, calling the act "evil, exploitive, sick".

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, is on the warpath against funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen over an upcoming skit that will show the "Borat" actor pranking her while pretending to be a USA veteran.

She wrote: "Yup - we were duped".

'I've got some business idea that I'll just want to tell you about and I would be a fool if, ' begins Cohen in the interview.

Palin took to Facebook on Thursday to blast Showtime and CBS for enabling Cohen's "evil, exploitative, sick "humor" she says was disrespectful to the US military and middle class Americans.

Showtime had no comment when contacted by the Press Association and Cohen's representatives were also asked for a comment.

"Borat" star Baron Cohen is making a return to television with the satirical series called "Who is America?" premiering Sunday, the premium cable network announced this week.

Former UCLA player Billy Knight found dead
Knight broke out at UCLA in 2001 - when he started all 33 games and averaged 14 points on 46 percent shooting from the floor. Former UCLA Bruins basketball player Billy Knight was found dead in Phoenix on Sunday after apparently committing suicide.

Showtime is an American entertainment company owned by CBS and behind Who Is America?.

So far, Palin is the only person on Drudge's list who has confirmed her appearance on the show, aside from Cheney, who appeared in promotional footage for the series. "Feel better now?" Palin said on Facebook.

In a final indignity, Palin accused the production team of "purposefully" dropping her and her daughter off at the wrong Washington airport, "knowing" they would miss their return flights back to Alaska.

According to Palin's post, she agreed to the interview because it was advertised to her as an opportunity to honor American veterans. By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of **** [sic], Sacha.

"Every honorable American Vet should feel the same", she wrote.

Now the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has set his sights on the U.S., duping high-profile politicians and celebrities into embarrassingly candid conversations.

Palin is reportedly not the only politician to be tricked into appearing on the show - former United States vice president Dick Cheney is shown in teasers for the show signing a "waterboard kit".
