    Every political book release is fact checked. The more people you put on the job, the faster it gets done.

    2. She did interviews where she was made a fool of due to lack of preparation or whatever.
    3. She was mocked by SNL countless times in skits that are now absolute classics that are being compared to skits from the early days of SNL when the show was actually good and cutting edge.
    4. During the Vice-Presidential debate she ignored questions and talked about what she wanted to talk about.

    Essentially she marches to the beat of her own drum and while that is admirable it does tend to garner attention. If there was a person on the left who had garnered such attention they would be scrutinizing it just as much.
    Obama didn't get as much attention as Palin????

    So does anyone know if this is an unusual number of reporters to fact-check a book, or is this just another hysterical non-issue?

    I can see how it would take 11 though, given Palin and the right wing's penchant for abusing the truth.

    Why are you bringing common sense into this? And why does it matter how many fact checkers check her book...if she was honest, they will declare her so, if not, then 11 will just point out the innacuracies faster. Should books not be fact checked?

    Obama certainly didn't get as much scrutiny, nor was he as much of a polarizing figure. He was polarizing, for sure...but not as much as Palin.

    You must be kidding.

    You want evidence that the media fact-checks books? Do you read?

    You want evidence that the more reporters you assign to do that, the faster it will happen?

    Yes they should... so how many fact checkers checked Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth book when it came out?

    I could care less if they fact check her book. More power to them. I just don't buy this bs about AP picking on her for purely partisan reasons.

    Well, when one makes a claim that all books are fact checked, it should be easy to provide evidence that this claim is fact.

    Provide evidence that all books are fact checked... and when you cannot don't make outrageous unsubstantiated claims. got it?
