Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin continues to insist her bus tour throughout the Northeast does nor mean she is running for president. Palin also said Tuesday on Fox News the mainstream media is making more of the trip than it is.
 
“Well, you know, I know that many in the mainstream media are looking for kind of a conventional — a campaign-type tour,” Palin said. “And I’ve said from the beginning this isn't a campaign tour, except to campaign on our Constitution, our charters of liberty. And they want kind of a conventional idea of, We want a schedule. We want to follow you. We want you to bring us along with you.
 
“I’m, like, A, I don’t think I owe anything to the mainstream media. I think that it would be a mistake for me to become some kind of conventional politician and doing things the way that it’s always been done with the media in terms of relationship with them,” she said. “Tell them to come on along and then we'll orchestrate this, we'll script this, and we'll basically write a story for you, media, about what we're doing every day.

“No, I want them to have to do a bit of work on a tour like this, and that would include not necessarily telling them beforehand where every stop is going to be,” Palin said. “You know, if they — we'll do a stop. We’ll do a lot of OTRs, off the records. We’ll meet a lot of great Americans. And then I'll write about that at the end of the day.”

Palin said she is not on a publicity-seeking tour.

“It’s about highlighting the great things about America. And the media can figure out where we're going if they do their investigative or they are going to keep kind of , as you put it, going crazy trying to figure out what we're doing,” she said.
