Sarah Palin may not have banned books — critics, on the other hand …

Does Sarah Palin have her own enemies list? You betcha:

Approximately 1,000 people attended former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s book-signing event in her hometown of Wasilla, AK …

Not every attendee was welcome. Dennis Zaki, an Anchorage photographer and videographer who until recently ran the Web site Alaska Report, checked in at the media table and was told by Wasilla Recreation and Cultural Services Manager James Hastings that he wasn’t welcome.

“He said because this is a paid event, they can ban anybody they want,” Zaki said. He didn’t fight it, he said.

Zaki said he was told that he and a couple of Alaska bloggers were on the list, with photos to identify them.

Hastings defended the move, saying:

… it wasn’t in his (Zaki’s) best interest to be here. He and others could have found themselves in a negative situation.

Apparently there were fears that someone might ask Palin what newspapers she reads. Also.
