Read this: Sarah Palin, 'Precious'
Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to a late-breaking edition of Read This.
If you haven't already, enter the fray of leaks from Sarah Palin's upcoming memoir, "Going Rouge." We've got drama! We've got intrigue! We've got a lot of dislike for Katie Couric ("badgering" and a sufferer of low self-esteem) and, more generally, John McCain's presidential campaign:
In the book, Palin accuses the McCain campaign of leaving her a $50,000 bill, the amount, she suggests, that her vetting cost the campaign. She asserts the thousands of dollars in clothes purchased from some of the country's most exclusive department stores was explained to her as all "part of the convention." Palin also says she carefully revised a statement about her daughter Bristol's pregnancy, with her teenage boyfriend, Levi Johnston, the father, only to see the campaign's less delicate version distributed to the media.
A spokeswoman for McCain's Senate office, Brooke Buchanan, declined to respond to the charges.
Elsewhere in today's Style section: Ann Hornaday calls "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" the "most painful, poetic and improbably beautiful film of the year." DeNeen Brown says minorities are finding their voices on Internet television. And Howard Kurtz reports the latest from the Washington Times: top editor John Solomon has resigned.
