(CNN) - LL Cool J wasn't the only one surprised to see that he was part of Sarah Palin's upcoming Fox News program, "Real American Stories."
A representative for country star Toby Keith told CNN that she too was unaware that Fox News was using an old interview of Keith's, conducted sometime in early 2009.
"I had no idea Toby's interview was going to air on Sarah Palin's special. I found out after the press release went out and was contacted by a reporter asking about the show," Keith’s publicist said. "It is an old interview….I was never contacted by Fox requesting permission. I still have not heard from Fox."
Calls to Fox News for comment have not been returned.

And once again, Fox "News" and Sarah Palin lie in their teeth. Is anyone surprised?
I really like Toby Kieth. I hope he backs out of this. I respect him a lot more than Sarah Palinl.
So in other words Fox pulled out all stops to make it seem like people were part of the program unbenounced to them, and thought there would be no backlash? They are truly as stupid as their commentators and special guests.
I'm confused by this show: is she going to actually interview these people or is she recycling interviews done by other people and just be moderator?
Fox has NO new material; they have become experst at cut and paste. Just ask old Hiney-Hannity about how he increased the size of a tee-bagger rally by showing the news footage from anothe rally. These "fair and balanced" should be called "show and tell."
Not returning calls Fox?
Now there's some real professionalism for you. What are you afraid of?
haha lol what else do you expect from a news channel that does nothing but lie, fear, monger FOX NEWS WHAT A JOKE!
This is dumb, stupid, arrogant and just plain unbelievable. How can you take someone's interview and post it as your own without their permission and/or clearance. My extreme sympathies to the Tea Party and the Republican Party. SP is "going rouge" in new ways and embrassing your efforts in the process. Wow!
....and now Fox will state that Toby Keith only has a fledging music career. ZHis acting may not be great, but he is one hell of a country musci SUPERSTAR. Fox you screwed up, admit it and move on
Toby, you are just another victim in a long line of victims of the propaganda machine aka Fox Noise. They have no regard for truth, honesty, or integrity.
It's amazing they haven't been sued for all they have for lying on air, libel, and copyright infringement.
You Won't Hear From FOX News Channel Because The Hide Their Number Under FOX Broadcasting. Secondly, When You Do Hear From Them. It'll Probably Be On Captain Bill O' (The Ass Clown) Reilly Factor(y).
Hey – personal media release – that’s only a pseudo-legal thing about business ethics or something, right?
Only has to do with personal, individual rights to intellectual property such as use of a star’s name, etc right?
So when did Sarah ever have anything to do with such trivial issues like personal rights and laws?
She is a former governor and therefore clearly above such commonfolk distractions as laws and business ethics…just ask the reverend at C Street Congressional Boarding House here in DC.
Fox promoting Palin by using lies and distorted truth...Is that something new with Fox and Palin? Bothe are liars and distort the truth!
Get real Sarah – surely you can find someone to interview for your show. What next!
Birds of a feather flock together and so are liars and cheaters! Fox and Palin, what a couple?
This proves that Fox News continues to distort the truth and Palin is no better...she is a LIAR herself!
Fox news seems to be the right-wing garbage channel (though Bill O'Reilly – agree or disagree with him – he at least seems to logically construct his arguments, rather than resorting to blindly screaming at the other side) . . .
Gee.....Wonder if Fox is going to say something smart about Toby....They did about L.L. ....Their true colors sure will come thru if they dont
So is Fox going to passively -aggressively congratulate him on his fledgling music career? Or they going to let this one slide because they like him?
this is just sad..
Ahhh, Sour Palin and FoxSpews. The jokes just write themselves.
this is typical of sarah liar palin.
Most likely, as with LL Cool J, the old video taped interview is the property of Fox Broadcasting, subject to be used as they wish.
This is just classic. Maybe John McCain would consent to be on her show?
It's time to change FOX NEWS to " FOX FRAUD NEWS".
