Apparently the Anchorage Daily News couldn't muster resources to cover Sarah Palin's resignation announcement on Friday. No ADN reporter or photographer was there for the presser. The paper relied on its archives and MSNBC for photos. I guess they used local TV station video/audio from KTUU for reporting the announcement.
I've been told that an ADN photographer and AP reporter arrived at the tail end of the event, but were not permitted access by Alaska State Troopers because they arrived after the presser had started.
On another front, the ADN is making headway on vacating its current newsroom. The paper's offices are being consolidated on the ground floor of its two-story building. The top floor (with a view of the mountains) is being leased out.
I juct checked out the ADN's web site... The only photos from the announcement posted on the ADN's web site are grainy screengrabs from KTVA video.
They're so low quality I don't want to post them on my blog. Click here to see them.
Update: From comments:
"It looks like the AP reporter who missed the event was Rachel D'Oro. She writes: "State troopers blocked late-arriving media outside her home... "
