New York, April 1 (ANI): Sarah Palin's TV debut as the host of a new interview series will not use footage of rapper LL Cool J, it has been announced.

Palin, 46, will be seen hosting the premiere of "Real American Stories," Thursday night.

The first episode was to air some interviews with celebs along with the stories of "ordinary Americans that have led extraordinary lives".

However, Fox News has decided to cut the interview footage of LL Cool J after he complained the channel was recycling an old interview with him for the show.

Earlier this week the rapper Tweeted that Fox News was "misrepresenting" him by using a 2008 interview in its promotions and adverts for the show.

Publicists for the country musician Toby Keith, also listed as a guest for Palin's show, made a similar charge.

"I have no idea what interview they are using. Toby's talked to Fox a number of times, and I had no idea that this was going to be on Sarah Palin's special. Fox has never contacted me - not now, not when they were putting this together, not at all. I have no idea what they're using," Keith's rep Elaine Schock, told New York Times over the telephone.

According to Schock, Keith had not been interviewed by Fox News since 2008 or early 2009.

Asked if Mr. Keith was ever interviewed by Palin, Schock replied: "Absolutely not."(ANI)
