WOODBURY, N.Y. (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is stepping into the mainstream media spotlight, agreeing to answer questions posed by a New York business leader with cameras rolling.

Palin is being paid an undisclosed sum to answer questions posed by the president of the Long Island Association at a luncheon Thursday.

The group previously has welcomed former presidents and other national leaders to speak at its meetings, but the meetings are usually closed to the media at the request of the speaker.

Palin, however, who has been criticized for limiting access to her by mainstream media, has agreed to allow cameras and reporters record the conversation.

LIA President Kevin Law says Palin was told of general themes the questions will be based on, but has not been given specific questions in advance.
