Bristol Palin Has Had It With Media Bias: ‘Let Me Tell You What Actually Happened’

Bristol Palin has had it with what she calls the media’s “bias against conservative women.”

In response to the recent coverage of what has come to be commonly called the “Palin Brawl,” which occurred last month in Alaska, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, has taken to her blog to set the record straight.

Earlier this week, Bristol Palin wrote a post on Patheos, entitled “The Truth about the ‘Palin Brawl’ – The Media Reveals Its Bias Against Conservative Women Once Again.”

Bristol Palin starts out the post by reminiscing on past aggressions imposed on her family by the mainstream media.

“First, the media said Trig was not really my mom’s kid.

Then, they claimed my mom said ‘I can see Russia from my house.’

Recently, they said my parents are getting a divorce.

And now, they’re saying my family started a ‘drunken brawl.'”

Breaking these down, the claim that Trig Palin is not Sarah’s son, but rather her grandson dates back to 2011 as reported by the Business Insider.

“I can see Russia from my house,” is the famous phrase Tina Fey uttered when playing Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

The prospect of Sarah Palin wanting a divorce from Todd dates back to a 2007 email that Sarah sent herself when she mentioned it. The Huffington Post reported that a Palin aid sent them an email stating that the comment was “tongue-in-cheek.”

Bristol Palin continues the blog post saying why she wants to address the most recent allegations, that the family “started a ‘drunken brawl.'”

“That’s why, after a month and a half of hearing rumors about myself and family, I’ve finally decided to comment about the situation. Instead of listening to all the people who weren’t there — people who claim they heard this from their cousin/brother/sister-in-law/step-daughter/long lost little brother – let me tell you what actually happened.”

Bristol then describes her view of the incident with a play-by-play commentary. She says that the Palins’ friend “got knocked out from a cheap shot from behind,” requiring ten stitches.

Palin says that the man who delivered the “cheap shot” was on Twitter before the incident, stating that he was “about to get famous.”

Willow, Bristol Palin’s sister, told the man’s mother that she should “get a hold of your son.” Bristol then reports that the mother pushed Willow to the ground.

Palin then sidetracks a bit, saying that “Next to God, family is the most important” thing to her. She goes on to talk about how the next day after the “drunken brawl,” they celebrated her father’s birthday. They even waited in the garage for him to yell “surprise!” and they even bought him a new truck…

Bristol even offered a video of the event.
