With Palin basically calling Obama a terrorist this weekend for being a member of a charity board with an old member of the Weather Underground, I thought I should point that the McCain campaign is against free speech.
Why not? One exaggeration deserves another, no?
Reporters weren't permitted to wander around inside Coachman Park in Clearwater to talk to Palin's audience, the St. Petersburg Times reported.
When reporters tried to leave the designated press area and head to where the crowd was seated, an escort would dart out, confront him or her and say, "Can I help you?" and turn the person around, Times staff writer Eileen Schulte wrote on the paper's Web site. When one reporter asked an escort, who would not give her name, why the press wasn't allowed to mingle, she said that in the past, negative things had been written, Schulte reported.
