(Newser) – A speech Sarah Palin plans for later this month in Hong Kong won’t leave the room, CNN reports. Not only will reporters not be allowed in, but they won’t even know what they’re missing. “We are not disclosing the topic of Sarah Palin's presentation at this point,” says a rep for the 4-day event. As for the former Alaska governor's fee, rumored to top six figures, mum's the word. “We never disclose if, or how much, our speakers are remunerated,” says the spokeswoman.
