New York Times: Help Us Investigate the Sarah Palin E-Mail Records
On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska. Times reporters will be in Juneau, the state capital, to begin the process of reviewing the e-mails, which we will be posting on nytimes.com starting on Friday afternoon E.D.T.
We’re asking readers to help us identify interesting and newsworthy e-mails, people and events that we may want to highlight. Interested users can fill out a simple form to describe the nature of the e-mail, and provide a name and e-mail address so we’ll know who should get the credit. Join us here on Friday afternoon and into the weekend to participate.
Washington Post: Help Anayze the Palin E-mails
Over 24,000 e-mail messages to and from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska’s governor will be released Friday. That’s a lot of e-mail for us to review so we’re looking for some help from Fix readers to analyze, contextualize, and research those e-mails right alongside Post reporters over the days following the release.
We are limiting this to just 100 spots for people who will work collaboratively in small teams to surface the most important information from the e-mails. Participants can join from anywhere with a computer and an Internet connection. Read more about how it will work.
Update: Stacy has a great idea:
ATTENTION PALINISTAS: If you have the time, volunteer at WaPo and at the NYTimes to go thru the Gov’s emails. You be the eyes not the haters
Update II: Via Josh Painter:
Wouldn’t it be interesting if some enterprising Palinista volunteered to go undercover and submitted applications to play in the Post’s pool of Palin plunderers? If you’ve always wanted to be a double agent, or if you would just like to bring a little bit of fairness andc balance to WaPo’s
witch hunt fishing expedition, just follow the links.
Update III by Stacy: To get involved in this process, go here to volunteer for the New York Times, and here for Washington Post. ADN has also announced that they will be seeking help from the public to go through these messages, and will release details later today, so heads up.
There will be nothing in these emails for anyone to fear. However, that will not stop unscrupulous individuals from spinning them out of context in an effort to hurt the governor. She needs you guys to be the eyes looking over these, and not people who are determined to destroy her. Please get involved if you can.
