Palin speech at southwest Missouri college closed to media coverage

Monday, November 16, 2009 | 6:24 p.m. CST

SPRINGFIELD — There will be no seat for the media when Sarah Palin speaks next month at the College of the Ozarks in southwest Missouri.

College Public Relations Director Elizabeth Andrews said the media exclusion was part of Palin's contract for speaking at the private school on Dec. 2.

Andrews said members of the media can attend the event with the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate only if they received free tickets previously distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Before her speech, Palin is to sign copies of her new book, "Going Rogue," at a Springfield bookstore.
