Army keeping media from Palin event

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - November 19, 2009

Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollum told The Associated Press on Thursday that Army officials had decided to keep media away from Palin's book promotion at the North Carolina base.

Other members of the public would be permitted to attend, however.

McCollum said the Army did not want the event to become a platform for Palin supporters to express political opinions "directed against the commander in chief."

The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate began a promotional tour this week for the memoir "Going Rogue."
