Redirector The New York Times and Washington Post raised eyebrows this week by hiring a bunch of additional staff to go through every snippet of Sarah Palins emails as Governor even asking the public to help them sift through every last syllable: More than 24,000 e-mail messages sent to and from Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaskas governor will be released Friday. Join The Post in digging through them. We are looking for 100 organized and dilligent readers who will work alongside Post reporters to analyze, contextualize, and research the emails. Think of it as spending some time in our newsroom. Our hope is that working together, we can efficiently find interesting information and extract new stories that will lead to further investigation. The Los Angeles Times announced it would be putting up an online database of this supposed treasure trove of correspondence from 2006 through her naming as John McCains running mate in 2008: Today the state of Alaska released nearly 25,000 emails from Palins tenure as governor. Our team is in Alaska and scanning them in. They will appear on this page through the day. If you find anything we should be writing about, email a tip to firstname.lastname@example.org Curiously though, this same L.A. Times has for 3 years running repeatedly, despite numerous requests, refused to release a video it possesses of Barack Obama reportedly praising Palestinian radical Rashid Khalidi at 2003 Chicago dinner. The same Khalidi who has called Israel a racist state and who called suicide attacks a justified response to Israeli aggression. The same Khalidi who organized a 2000 fundraiser for Barack Obamas unsuccessful congressional bid, and whose Arab American Action Network received a $75,000 grant from the Woods Fund of Chicago, while Mr. Obama served on its board.
