Palin speech in SW Mo. closed to media coverage

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- There will be no seat for the media when Sarah Palin speaks next month at the College of the Ozarks in southwest Missouri.

College public relations director Elizabeth Andrews says the media exclusion was part of Palin's contract for speaking at the private school on Dec. 2.

Andrews says members of the media can attend the event with the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate only if they got some the free tickets previously distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Before her speech, Palin is to sign copies of her new book, "Going Rogue," at a Springfield book store.
