Carol Costello could barely contain herself on the 22 October 2014 edition of CNN Newsroom, as she touted the recently-released audio of Bristol Palin giving her account of a fight involving her family to the police: "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 – well, come across in a long time anyway."

Costello hyped the "massive brawl in Anchorage, Alaska reportedly involving Sarah Palin's kids and her husband." Just before playing the audio, the anchor proclaimed to her audience, "Sit back and enjoy."
