USAT | Paper is mum on plans for Palin's e-mail

USA Today notes that The New York Times and The Washington Post are among media outlets planning to use reader crowdsourcing to examine more than 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin's e-mail from her tenure as Alaska governor. They're to be released in paper form today at 9 a.m. local time in Juneau.

In a post this morning on its On Politics blog, Gannett's marquee daily did not say how it will handle the e-mail trove, however.


  1. USAT: DON'T DO IT! This is a circus - steer clear!

    What a disgusting obsession with Palin. On what grounds are they combing through her emails? Is she being accused of a crime? She's not even running for anything, as far as I know.


    Republicans should ask to go through Obama's emails but, of course, they won't because they are too classy.

  2. Funny how no one else is commenting on this. Oh, I forgot, 99% of the media are liberals so I guess it's not so surprising.

  3. I guarantee you that should Obama's e-mail becomes available under the Freedom of Information Act, the news media will be all over it.

    Certainly, everyone will be going through his papers when they become public at his presidential library to be build, I imagine, in Chicago, after he leaves the White House.

  4. 7:04 p.m., thanks for my morning laugh. Republicans "are too classy."

And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
