The media will be barred from covering Palin's Dec. 2 speech at College of the Ozarks, according to college public relations director Elizabeth Andrews.
Locking the media out from her speech in the private school's Keeter Gymnasium was part of Palin's contract, Andrews said.
"There will not be a media section," said Andrews, adding that the agreement was "mutual."
