Anti-gay slurs[edit]

Removed false claim / BLP violation that Bristol Palin had posted anti-gay slurs on a Facebook page. The source cited makes it clear that it was Willow Palin, not Bristol, who made them. 64.121.177.201 (talk) 07:29, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

The source says that both of them made the slurs: "Bristol Palin took to Facebook to apologize, or not, for antigay slurs she and her sister wielded…"[emphasis added][1]C.Fred (talk) 15:54, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
Reports from many news organizations, including The Associated Press, ABC, MSNBC, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, and The New York Daily News, say that it was Willow, not Bristol, that used the anti-gay slurs. If you have any doubt, TMZ has a screen capture of the comments. The claim is false and is a violation of WP:BLP. 64.121.177.201 (talk) 14:00, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

The Associated Press and MSNBC are very liberal outfits, so they would not necessarily be valid sources for any of the Palins. Mainstream media loathed the Palins and still do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.49.20.187 (talk) 21:21, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Are you seriously contending that she didn't make the remarks and the mainstream media outlets -- numerous networks and newspapers in several countries -- are making this up? "The Palins have always hated when the press report facts and still do"? - SummerPhD (talk) 04:32, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Daughter of Sarah Palin[edit]

Bristol seems to be the daughter of Sarah Palin. --67.81.194.190 (talk) 01:42, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Current Information[edit]

I could swear that I read that she is back living in Alaska. Can someone research and put it in the article? It seems the last bit of information is 2011 and the house she bought that she does not live in. Mylittlezach (talk) 22:41, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Confusing and Unclear in places[edit]

For example: "Palin was born and raised in Wasilla, Alaska.[1][4] She was named "Bristol" after the Bristol Inn where her mother had been employed; Bristol, Connecticut, the headquarters city of ESPN, where her mother had hoped to work as a sportscaster; and the Bristol Bay region of Alaska, where her father grew up.[5][6] — Preceding unsigned comment added by CelestialSpore (talkcontribs) 16:20, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Actually, it used to say, "Her mother was formerly employed", but a couple other editors declared the current usage is an improvement. Similarly, "Her mother named her after" was sacked. Additionally, "had hoped" is accurate in this case because if you read the sources, Sarah allegedly hoped to work at ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut. Dasani 21:22, 1 June 2012 (UTC)


Lede and Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp[edit]

The article Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp was deleted from the lede. As this is her show, it has been added again. Thanks. Ism schism (talk) 13:59, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

I've moved it further down in the lede, no evidence it's significant enough for the first sentence. Kelly hi! 04:03, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
