Palin accuses the AP of doing 'opposition research' in fact check By Michael O'Brien - 11/15/09 09:40 AM ET Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) went after the Associated Press on Sunday, accusing them of engaging in "opposition research" in fact-checking her forthcoming book. Palin blasted the AP's fact check of her new book, "Going Rogue," which says the former governor had gone rogue with some of the facts. "Amazingly, but not surprisingly, the AP somehow nabbed a copy of the book before it was released," Palin wrote on her Facebook page. "They're now erroneously reporting on the book's contents and are repeating many of the same things they spewed during the campaign and afterwards."
