About 30 journalists, along with three TV camera crews, had been crammed into a small space in a state administrative building in Juneau on Friday, waiting for the release of boxes filled with 25,000 printed emails stemming from Palin's tenure as governor.
A massive trove of nearly 25,000 pages of Sarah Palin’s emails from her time as governor of Alaska will be released tomorrow, and the Washington Post has come up with a novel way of dealing with them – ask readers to pitch in.
“That's a lot of email for us to review so we're looking for some help from Fix readers to analyze, contextualize, and research those emails right alongside Post reporters over the days following the release,” writes WaPo’s Ryan Kellett.”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 emails.”
Soon after the emails are released Friday morning, MSNBC.com, in conjunction with Mother Jones and Pro Publica, plans to scan them and create an electronic archive. The emails to be released include correspondent that went between the Yahoo account of Palin and her husband and about 50 state officials. When one side of it passed through state mail computers, MSNBC.com writes, it became public record.
