Governor Sarah Palin in an early morning Facebook post… gave a shout out to grassroots supporters, and in particular Conservatives 4 Palin.
The book tour starts this week, and I look forward to it! I’m most looking forward to meeting many of you, shaking your hands, and telling you,"Thanks for loving America." I’ll give you a scoop here and tell you what’s on the book’s Dedication Page – it’s dedicated to you – Patriots – who love the U.S.A. as much as I do.
Amazingly, but not surprisingly, the AP somehow nabbed a copy of the book before it was released. 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! Imagine that – 11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to "fact check" what’s going on with Sheik Mohammed’s trial, Pelosi’s health care takeover costs, Hasan’s associations, etc. Amazing.
We’ll keep setting the record straight, and we’ll keep reminding some in the media that Americans are very tired of their non-objective reporting. A great, recent post that accomplishes this is a Conservatives4Palin post. It’s got some nice fact checking included. As always, they did a great job holding some of the media accountable for spreading more misinformation and for making things up. You can read it here. Enjoy!
And I can’t wait to see you! God bless the fight for freedom! Keep up the great work, Patriots who love this country.

Conservatives 4 Palin certainly deserves the recognition as they have been extremely diligent in correcting misinformation and getting correct information about the Governor out there. Their takedown of AP’s “fact checking” piece last week was exemplary. As I’ve mentioned before AP’s handling of this book has been awful, and even Ben Smith at Politico notes that in the AP’s takedown of her book, “at times blend the notions of fact-checking and analysis.”
Keep up the great work guys!
Also, a side note, the grassroots recognizes her as well, as she’ll be keynoting at the First National Tea Party Convention.
