Despite widespread rumors to the contrary, Bristol Palin will not be attending the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. ...
... TMZ.com reported that Bristol was "telling friends" that she may enroll at an Arizona college. And because Maricopa is "just miles" from the Cronkite School, the website connected the dots and reported that Bristol would soon be a Sun Devil.
Never mind the fact that the Bristol's home is more than 35 miles from the school.
But the Washington Post started repeating the rumor, and the Huffington Post repeated it and the Wall Street Journal got involved.
The problem, of course, is that it was never the case.
"She is not a student. She hasn't applied. It is pure fiction," the dean of the Cronkite School, Chris Callahan, said Tuesday morning. "If anybody had called and asked me that, we would have been glad to tell them." ...
HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively with a representative from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication about how the school would embrace the famous Alaskan if she were to apply in the same field as her mother.
“If Bristol’s application does come across our table we will treat it just like everyone else’s and thoroughly look it over,” the representative informs us. “But we can’t confirm or deny anything right now.”
But GossipGirl, writing for the Cleveland Leader, just stated:
... Bristol Palin is planning to go to college in Arizona and recently purchased a house there. Now, the rest of the Palin clan is hoping to follow suit and permanently relocate to the much warmer locale. ...
What are the facts? Bristol Palin bought a house in Maricopa, AZ. She has not applied to ASU's Cronkite School.
I don't know which Bristol Palin these people are talking about.
