Huffington Post – Nov. 16, 2009:

Former Alaska Governor lashed out at the Associated Press Sunday for doing a fact-check on her memoir, “Going Rogue.”

“Amazingly, but not surprisingly, the AP somehow nabbed a copy of the book before it was released,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “They’re now erroneously reporting on the book’s contents and are repeating many of the same things they spewed during the campaign and afterwards. We’ve heard 11 writers are engaged in this opposition research, er, “fact checking” research!”

The AP reported that Palin’s account often contradicted her record as well as current events. Her depiction of the McCain campaign is also frequently at odds with internal campaign emails.

Does anyone else remember the old days when journalists were expected to fact-check stories?

    Dodd, Palin is a litmus test of sorts. The majority of Americans can see what she is. Those of you who take her seriously speak volumes about yourself.

  2. tdkacv says:

    Speaking of facts….I’d just like some please. Rather than opinions like what the frick, I’d like to hear actual facts in this story as to how many fact checkers were put on other political figures books, especially other women.
