...wouldn't we have justifiably wondered why an appearance by a national political figure at a California university would not have been covered by the media?
It appeared the media were close to not being allowed the chance to cover Sarah Palin's visit to one California higher education institution. But common sense has prevailed. And Ms. Palin, who began her professional career as a journalist, should have defused this situation before it ever started.
It's perhaps unfair to blame her, but she should have known better.
