Media barred from Palin's Dec. 2 speech at College of the Ozarks
Sarah Palin really is "Going Rogue."
The media will be barred from covering Palin's Dec. 2 speech at College of the Ozarks, according to college public relations director Elizabeth Andrews.
Locking the media out from her speech in the private school's Keeter Gymnasium was part of Palin's contract, Andrews said.
"There will not be a media section," said Andrews, adding that the agreement was "mutual."
Free tickets for Palin's speech were distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis after the college announced she was coming to campus on Oct. 19.
Andrews said members of the media would only be able to cover the event if they got a ticket last month. No video or audio recording by an independent news organization will be made of the speech.
College of the Ozarks, located in Hollister, is hosting the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska governor for a 7 p.m. speech on Dec. 2.
On Tuesday, Palin's new biography called "Going Rogue" hits stores.
Before Palin speaks at College of the Ozarks, she'll be signing copies of her book starting at 10 a.m. at Borders Bookstore in Springfield.
