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.

    There’s actually no difference between NYT and Post and TPM and Kos. They’ve morphed into one. Imagine that.

      Remember when the press got all up in arms about Sarah Palin’s aerial wolf hunting program in Alaska?  Now Australia is doing the same for camels under the banner of "reducing climate change."  Read about it here: http://bit.ly/kMt0XG  Maybe that’s the line we should say for Palin if that comes up again ;-)

        Last week it was California with  similar program — areal wild pig hunting.  where’s PETA on that?

        • Guest

          Man! I’d love to eat some wild pig and camel meat. I hope the kills are clean so the entire animal can be used.

      Just think about your own emails and what sort of info people will find out about you. I’d wager that they’ll find a big hot cup full of nothing.

    What is more interesting than this is the fact there is not a breath about anyone asking for the e-mails of Obama, Pawlenty, Romney, ect. 

    And why is that? The left is totally lasered on one objective and the right is still wandering in the woods, lost.

    No weapon formed against Sarah or her family will prosper….let all the arrows shot at Sarah and her family be turned around on those shooting the arrows…..

    They will hate Christians because they hate the Christ….

    All those who follow Christ, boldly, are hated by the Left……because they hate the message…..they want to destroy the messenger…..

    They know their days of trying to bring America and Israel down, are numbered….they know any true Christian who gets the top job in the WH will return the government back to We The People and their power grabs, corruption, schemes will be laid bare and come to naught.

    Last year the AP combed through about 12,000 pages of emails, and found less than pocket lint.  I suspect these 24,000 pages will add up to nothing.  Oh, they’ll try to make mountains out of molehills, just as the AP tried to make a big deal about Palin asking her husband his opinion on pending legislation,even that didn’t gain any traction, even among the hardcore Palin-haters. 

    • WilliamShipley

      Anyone complaining about Sarah talking to Todd should have it pointed out to them that Hillary Clinton ran a presidential campaign based entirely on the premise that as spouse to the president she was sufficiently involved in the job to be considered experienced in the office.

      I didn’t really buy it, but obviously the Democrats thought it reasonable that she be involved.  She even ran the disasterous health care reform committee.

    I just visited the Post and the Times, and suggest you all read the comments at these sites. They just jumped the shark!!!

    They are getting slammed more than Bachmann’s face book page….LOL

    This is a gigantic error on their part.. Be like Paul Revere, and spread the news!

      Yes, just got done reading the times comments too and not very positive responses.

    This is unprecedented in American history. Calling for citizens to investigate other citizens.

    • Anonymous

      Actually no.

      Woodrow Wilson had 1000s of folks investigating other folks. The American Legion actually started somewhat like this.

        Yes, you are right.  I also recommend Liberal Fascism.  The part about WWI and Wilson is frightening

    • MaMcGriz

      I think it’s not unprecedented, but it’s certainly a chilling prospect, and one that should be taken very seriously.

      I pray this backfires and blows right back in their faces.

        This will…NOW people will understand better why Palin resigned for her State’s sake as well as her family’s sake.  This will be a plus for her.

        • FlAli

          Didn’t one of the AK anklebiters request emails before and did she not ask for people to send her upwards of $5,000 so she could get them?  What happened to that?  Look, Gov. Palin is not worried, if she was she would not have slammed BO in Facebook today. 

          On another note, dear Chrissy Matthews lambasted Gov. Perry, Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin about their knowledge of history.  Michelle Bachmann because she said about slavery being abolished in the 1700′s, Perry about secession and Sarah Palin about Paul Revere and when she answered that ten year old girl about what the VP did.  Of course, he seemed to have forgotten about our Constitution being written 20 centuries ago though.  Or the Selma march, or Auschwitz being liberated by the Americans.

    Governor Palin,
    We all know there is nothing in those e-mails to hurt you, but, I can’t help but think that you must really, really be doing something right to get this type of attention and this much attention.:) We know what you and your family have gone through these past 3 years, that it must be incredibly crushing at times, yet, you continue to wade through the muck with God leading you every step of the way.

    We continue to lift you and your family up in prayer, and know because God is your shield and your strength, you will continue to smile, because greater is He that is in you.
    Jeremiah 29:11 says: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    God keep you protected physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
    Thank you for your courage and strength that comes from the Lord and shines through to the world.

      AMEN!!

      Amen, Nancy…Couldn’t help but pray for the gov and her family while I was out running today. I was thinking how few people living today could identify with King David like Palin can right now. God uplifted and vindicated David when haters came after him– He’ll do the same for Sarah. May God be gracious to her and bless her and cause the light of His face to shine on her and her family.

    The NYT was infamously referred to as a "Useful Idiot" by Josef Stalin for their help for knowingly NOT reporting the fact tens of millions of Russians were being killed by Stalin.

    The NYT (and their ilk) continues to push their traitorous pro-socialist agenda.

      The New York Times record of veracity is well documented.  Never so much more so than when  they told the American people that Castro had tens of thousands guerrila members in the hills when at any one time he never had more than 3500.  The way that Castro accomplished this was to make sure that the NYT reporter saw members of his guerrillas.  Of course, the reporter did not realize that these men that were being paraded in front of him were the same men who would change clothing and wear hats in order for the reporter to think that 100 men equaled 1000.
