Sarah Palin Has Her Own Naughty or Nice List
Posted on Dec 23, 2009
According to the muckrakers at TPM, some independent media types were refused entry to a “Going Rogue” event in the world capital of Sarah Palin, Wasilla, Alaska, because their names were on a “banned list.”
The list, which is reported to be only four names long, included a videographer, a blogger and a local radio personality. The fourth person is unknown.
The event was held at the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center, the $14.7 million boondoggle Palin championed as mayor of the town of 6,300 (at the time).
We understand why Palin would want to keep hostile press away from her homecoming, but why ban a videographer who insists he has never included commentary with his straight reports of Palin’s speeches? Maybe it has something to do with the crowds that show up to these things and the ability of YouTube to shame them (see below). —PZS
