McCain aides kept me bottled up: Palin

world Updated: Nov 14, 2009 01:19 IST

The rumours are true, according to Sarah Palin.

The McCain-Palin campaign was not a happy family. In Palin’s Going Rogue, Palin confirms reports of tension between her aides and those of the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain.

The vice presidential candidate confirms that she had wanted to speak on election night, but was denied the chance and says she was kept “bottled up” from reporters during the campaign.

Palin also writes harshly of CBS anchor Katie Couric, whom she describes as “badgering” and biased. Palin’s interviews with Couric were widely regarded as disastrous, leaving the impression of an ill-informed candidate unsuited for the job.

The 413-page book comes out Tuesday. The Associated Press purchased a copy Thursday.
