New York, Sept.9 (ANI): Republican vice-presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has indicated that she is ready to be grilled by what the McCain Campaign refers to as media piranhas.

Palin will sit down with ABC News for her first press interview at the end of the week, reports the New York Daily News.

Keen to tone down increasing criticism that Palin is being kept on a short leash while feeding off her crowd appeal, the McCain camp relented Sunday and said Palin will have her first press interview at the end of the week with ABC News.

Since her nomination, the popular governor has attracted the large crowds that John McCain was never able to draw, and she is scheduled to continue pulling them in this week.

According to the New York daily News, McCain senior adviser Rick Davis bristled at the criticism, saying: “Why would we want to throw Sarah Palin into a cycle of piranhas called the news media that have nothing better to ask questions about than her personal life and her children?”

“Eventually, she is going to have to answer questions and not be sequestered,” responded Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden. (ANI)
