Sarah Palin’s Memoir Move

mc23.jpgToday on the Morning Media Menu, Politico reporter Michael Calderone pondered the future of Sarah Palin‘s memoir in the wake of her unexpected resignation.

“What this really would allow her to do is free her up so she can finish the book that she’s already contracted to write, she can do paid speeches, she can do fundraising and basically take on that national role without the obligation that she still had back in Alaska,” he explained. Calderone also told how he helped break the political story of the week–exposing The Washington Post‘s plan to host a sponsored salons with editorial staff and lobbyists.

While the newspaper has since canceled the salon and apologized, Calderone explained how he helped land the story and explained how other media organization handle similar events. The show was co-hosted by GalleyCat editor Jason Boog and AgencySpy editor Matt Van Hoven.
