Professor Stacy McCain presents a textbook example of Palin Derangement Syndrome, Hollyweird style:
Kyle Massey, 19, is an ex-child star best known for his role as the pesky little brother on the Disney Channel sitcom, That's So Raven (2003-07). Bristol's new reality-show gig with Massey should be good news for her and her family, but Palin Derangement Syndrome dictates otherwise. A National Enquirer story that got picked up and elaborated by the London Daily Mail this week carries the headline, "Mama Grizzly strikes again: Sarah Palin 'furious' at Bristol's new Disney Show star boyfriend."Props to Rumor Fix for exposing that particular race-baiting leftist lie for what it is. I had never heard of the site before, but it makes sense that a "GossipBusters" would be needed to watchdog the exploitainment media just as NewsBusters exposes lamestream media lies. A salute to Stacy as well, for getting the truth out to The American Spectator's readers.
As might be expected, this rumor-mongering story cites unnamed "sources" about an alleged romance between Massey and Bristol: "Sarah is furious at Bristol for going so quickly from man to man. She is doing her best to prevent Bristol's new relationship from being featured in the reality show."
Which would be very interesting, if true. But it's not true, according to Massey's mother, Angel Massey:"They are not dating," she reveals while laughing. "They're good friends. I understand the media wants to push sales or whatever, but no, they're not dating.""Funny, nice and genuinely warm"? No wonder the liberal media ignored Angel Massey's denial. It would ruin their anti-Palin narrative.
Angel goes on to say, "Both of our families gelled during Dancing with the Stars. Sarah would be in the audience cheering for Kyle, and we'd be in the audience rooting for Bristol. We all became close."
Mama Massey adds, "The Palins are really funny, nice and genuinely warm to us."
