| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Some 24,199 e-mails from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin--who may / may not be mulling a 2012 presidential bid--will be released on Friday morning. The e-mails will cover most of her tenure as governor--with no redactions. Several news outlets bought copies of the e-mail files and will be posting and analyzing the contents.

The Palin Alaska e-mails will be an experiment in on-line pro/am cooperation. Professional journalists--and citizen researchers--will be "crowdsourcing"--sorting and trying to make sense of the e-mails, starting as soon as they are released. Check out the Washington Post and Mother Jonesto track Friday's Palin e-mail developments. NBC'S Mike Isikoff is reporting live from Juneau this afternoon on MSNBC.
