Mayor Palin and The Press

Something I learned from Newsweek’s Sarah Palin (“Palintology”) cover story:

As Mayor of Wasilla, Palin “imposed a gag order to keep city personnel from talking to the press.”

(Oh, and also, as Palin studies up on what a McCain aide calls “McCain World,” Palin “likes to get her study points on large index cards…”)

Has America ever needed a media watchdog more than now? Help us by joining CJR today.
