The stipulation is part of Palin's agreement with the Missouri school.

Don't expect to read any reports about Sarah Palin's visit to the College of the Ozarks in Missouri. The former governor of Alaska's agreement with the school stipulates that no media members are allowed to cover her December 2 speech, the Springfield, Mo., News-Leader reports.

Elizabeth Andrews, public relations director for the college, tells the News-Leader that the agreement was mutual. There may be a few members of the Fourth Estate in attendance, however: Members of the media could cover the event if they acquired free tickets to the speech in October, when they were made available on a first-come-first-served basis. No video or audio recordings will be made by an independent news organization, the report says.

Palin will be signing copies of her new book, Going Rogue, at the Borders store in Springfield before her speech. Maybe the media can catch her there.
