We have actually already covered this interview on Tuesday, but it is interesting to see it on video.
Not only does she fake cry towards the end of the interview but if you pay close attention around the 46 second mark you can see that once again they suggest that Bristol is pregnant with Dakota's baby.
"Then the tabloids went into overdrive when the long awaited marriage of her twenty five year old daughter Bristol didn't happen, even though she's pregnant."
If that does not give the impression that this kid is Meyer's I don't know what would.
They changed the comment in the text of the interview from "Then, the tabloids went into overdrive when the long-awaited marriage of her 25-year-old daughter Bristol didn't happen, even though she's pregnant with her ex-fiancé's baby." to "Then, the tabloids went into overdrive when the long-awaited marriage of her 25-year-old daughter Bristol didn't happen. Bristol was pregnant, but the father's identity has not been determined," which is actually worse, but left it much more accusatory in the broadcast.
I'm telling you I think they still want to give the impression that this is Dakota's kid, and are going to let the public hate on him for not stepping up to the plate.
Update: Palin took to Facebook to admit that she exaggerated her "cancer" scare:
Anyway, in this particular interview when recalling a few potentially disconcerting times, I poo-poo’d the cancer scare because in the grand scheme of things, it’s no big deal. In fact, I didn’t even remember the technical name for my diagnosis. That’s why — when the interviewer interjected, “It was melanoma?” — I mumbled, “Something like that.”
Then, I moved on to making my point about others dealing with tremendously more burdensome issues than that.
So to clear things up and avoid any “woe-is-me” narrative, know that I’ve never used the word “melanoma” to describe my condition. I wasn’t trying to be evasive in not using the correct medical term “squamous cell carcinoma” either. It’s common. It’s treatable. Again, it’s no big deal.
Actually it kind of is a big deal because a LOT of news outlets focused on this part of the interview, and it attracted some completely undeserved sympathy from their readers.
Palin can try to minimize this, but I think we all recognize it as yet another lie that she was called out on.
