How Sarah Palin ‘spent meetings texting on her two BlackBerries’: Explosive new documentary set to reveal ‘truth’ about Tea Party darling
Sarah Palin will be looking forward to one new documentary coming out next week that’s expected to paint a positive picture of her.
But the half-term Alaska Governor will surely be worried about controversial British film-maker Nick Broomfield’s own film to unveil the ‘real’ Palin.
Mr Broomfield has been speaking to her relatives, friends and disgruntled ex-colleagues to dig up some dirt on her rise to international fame.

Pro-Palin movie ‘Undefeated’ is out Wednesday. But Mr Broomfield will shop his own film in Los Angeles next week, reported Radar Online.
The film to document the politician’s rise from obscurity could even make its première in Canada at the Toronto Film Festival this September.
A preview clip shows her former legislative director John Bitney and senate president Lyda Green criticise her behaviour during important meetings.
‘I never felt that Sarah was ever connected to the business that was going on in the Capitol,’ Senator Lyda Green said in a video clip on Radar Online.

‘It was always, I thought, a rather cursory attendance when she was there, lack of interest and she’d generally have her two Blackberries and was texting most of the time’

Mr Bitney adds in the preview clip that Mrs Palin, 47, was often ‘unengaged’ in conversations.
Mr Broomfield is well-known for his controversial biographical documentaries – such as 1998 film Kurt & Courtney.
The film about the life of former Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain and his relationship with Courtney Love questioned the singer’s suicide attempt.
Mrs Palin is under the impression that she is a potential Republican presidential candidate for 2012. So, Mr Broomfield will shop his own film in Los Angeles next week.
