<p>Carol Costello could barely contain herself on the 22 October 2014 edition of <em>CNN Newsroom</em>, as she touted the recently-released audio of Bristol Palin giving her account of a fight involving her family to the police: &quot;Okay.

<p>Costello hyped the &quot;massive brawl in Anchorage, Alaska reportedly involving Sarah Palin&#39;s kids and her husband.&quot; Just before playing the audio, the anchor proclaimed to her audience, &quot;Sit back and enjoy.&quot;</p>
