Sarah Palin is coming to Chicago. But unless reporters want to shell out up to $297 a seat, we will not be in the audience.
Good for Sarah Palin!
If journalists won't voluntarily stop giving Palin's nonsense all that inexplicable coverage she has received since she lost the race for vice president of the United stated, 18 months ago... well, she's going to put an end to it herself.
“An Evening with Sarah Palin” will be at the Rosemont Theatre, in northwest suburban Chicago, on May 12. Her performance is sponsored by Chicago radio station AM 560 WIND. The outlet is one of 99 owned by Salem Communications. The fifth largest radio station operator in the United States, Salem specializes in evangelical Christian and conservative political talk.
Locally, Salem's lineup includes the likes of Glenn Beck, Dennis Miller, Michael Medved and Dennis Prager. (The latter two being conservatives, but not Christians.)
Dan Nelson, marketing / promotions director for Salem in Chicago, confirms to me that the Sarah Palin event “is closed to the press.”
I am so damned proud of these guys and gals, I just may start listening to WIND radio myself. You betcha!
