CNN host Carol Costello can barely contain her excitement over hearing the new audio of the ‘brawl’ in Alaska that involved Bristol Palin a few weeks back.
She started the segment by claiming it was possibly the best audio CNN had ever gotten:
“Okay I’m just going to come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across.”
Costello then proceeded to describe the “massive brawl” and before playing the audio she told her viewers “so sit back and enjoy.”
After the audio concluded, Costello said “I think that long beep was my favorite part,” referring to the beep that replaced a long string of expletives from Bristol Palin.
Costello then quoted Sarah Palin’s Facebook post where she had remarked how proud she was that Palin defended the family, noting that it made her heart soar. Costello ended it by saying smugly “You can thank me later.”
What’s so disturbing about Costello’s smug excitement over this audio is the actual content of the audio, in which Bristol Palin is incredibly upset as she describes to police how she and her sister were assaulted by someone at the party. I’m not sure how something like that can excite someone so much. Costello clearly has such contempt for the Palins that she apparently gets off on harm coming to the Palins.
I suspect if these were Barack Obama’s girls in the same situation, Costello would be defending them instead of laughing at them.
