Witness Fired For Talking About Palin Family Brawl On Good Morning America

He says his boss fired him for talking to the media.

The Palins are famous for seeking vengeance against anyone who criticizes or opposes them, but I have to wonder why they still have any influence where they live. I mean, who cares if Sarah Palin is mad at them?

The lurid, stereotypical tale of Sarah Palin and her family entering into an alcohol-fueled melee at a snowmobile party is starting to pick up in the mainstream media, with Good Morning Americadevoting an entire segment to the story this morning. In doing so, they talked to Eric Thompson, an eyewitness who attended the party at the invitation of his boss.

But Thompson, who also gave his account to Alaskan political blogger Amanda Coyne, was fired today for talking to the media.Entertainment Tonight producer Elizabeth Applegate tweeted that she’d spoken to Townsend this morning, who confirmed that he’d been fired specifically for talking to ABC. Weirdly enough, Political Gates reported that Thompson’s former employers, McKenna Brothers Paving, were the hosts of the party where the brawl took place.
