Saradise Lost - Book 4 - Chapter 24 -- Going Rouge Table of Contents

On Saturday, December 12th, at 1:00 p.m. Alaska time, the blog firedoglake (where I occasionally write) will host a book salon session with Richard Kim and Colin Robinson, the editor and publisher of the new book about the Crazy Woman, titled Going Rouge: Sarah Palin - An American Nightmare.

The book has chapters by Alaskans
Jeanne Devon (AK Muckraker), Elston Lauesen and Shannyn Moore. Additionally, there are several chapters written by national or international reporters who came up to Alaska in 2008, and were provided assistance by Alaska's progressive blogging community.

Essentially, the book is a large collection of articles and essays about aspects of why Palin is an American nightmare. Here is the Table of Contents:

The editors and reporters at the ADN didn't deserve to have an article included in this, or any other Palin expose book, because they had months and years to show us Alaskans that they would treat Palin like any politician needs to be treated by the press - with actual questions and reporting of issues of importance; and on this, their one job, they have been nothing but an abysmal failure.

The ADN is what gave Palin to the State - and they are what helped give her to the nation - with their refusal to do little more than print large photo after large photo of Palin.

For much of the Alaskan and apparently American public who doesn't care to read - but just likes to look at pretty pictures, the ADN was a God send.

Yesterday when I grabbed my copy of the paper from my newspaper box, and marveled at how thin it was, I couldn't help but long for the day when they turn the lights out at the ADN for good. It will be good riddance for a journalistic paper that didn't think (still doesn't) that asking the former governor obvious questions about her many lies has merit.
