The buzz seems to be fading. According to the Guardian, 42% of over 6,000 pages of Sarah Palin's emails scanned as of June 14 are "uninteresting." Over 24,000 pages of the former governor of Alaska's emails have been released for public perusal.
Here are a few mildly interesting ones for business communication students:
- December 6, 2008: Apparently, Palin didn't have access to the email account "Governor Sarah Palin."
- March 10, 2008: Palin seems to care about following up with constituents.
- February 17, 2008: Palin compliments her former director of boards and commissions.
- January, 13, 2007: Many emails are redacted, causing a few questions.
- Why do you think Sarah Palin's email is of such interest to the press? Do you find her communications interesting? Why or why not?
- Consider your own email communication. Have you written anything in the past year that you would regret if you saw it on Facebook?
