In an interview with conservative filmmaker John Ziegler for an upcoming documentary, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin says she was "exploited" by the media and while that wasn't fun, the attacks on her family were way out of line.

She cited, in particular, a "SNL" segment in which Palin-impersonator Tina Fey mocked her beliefs about the sanctity of marriage and motherhood by using Palin's pregnant daughter Bristol and her teen lover Levi Johnston.

"I believe marriage is meant to be a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers," Fey said.

"The mama grizzly rises up in me, hearing things like that," Palin said. "Cool, fine come attack me. But when you make a suggestion like that that attacks a kid, it kills me."

Something else that kills her is how she felt Evening News anchor Katie Couric tried to portray her as a boob in a series of interviews.

"Katie, you're not the center of everybody's universe," Palin remarked.
