CNN was invited to cover Sarah Palin's book-signing event in Iowa, before they weren't:
"There was no opportunity to follow up on Palin's comments at the book signing. This CNN crew was informed our allotted time to cover the event was up. The event itself was tightly controlled. Customers were told no cell phones or cameras. Representatives of the media were escorted in to Palin's book signing station, three at a time. As for that music, Palin asked us if we had turned it off. 'Because that wouldn't be cool if you did. These Iowa people, they got my back. And I got their back,' Palin said after one of her handlers put her hand in front of our camera."
CNN did manage to fire two questions off when Palin's music died — one question dealt with her decision to run for President, the other was about some remarks Mitt Romney made on Jay Leno regarding her quitting as governor.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
