Bristol Palin’s ex-fiance, Dakota Meyer, is criticizing the media for the uproar over Palin’s second pregnancy announcement.
He took to his personal Facebook page to state that the mass media is putting on a “dog and pony show” by putting so much attention on the announcement rather than news stories of terrorism,“Within the past 24 hours there have been three terrorist style attacks across the world. There has been an incident at a U.S. company owned gas factory in Lyon, France Leaving one dead and two injured. Another incident in Tunisia with 28 people lost in an assault on a west tourist, mostly British. And finally, a blast at a Shiite mosque in Kuwait.”
The former U.S. Marine attached a photo of himself along with the Facebook post. The photo shows him in a bathrobe, sitting on a couch, with a smoking pipe in his mouth. The photo also shows him holding a sword in one hand and a Marine handbook in the other, which he appears to be reading. The photo was posted along with a caption that read “Still waiting…” along the bottom.
“All ISIS/ISIL attacks and all overshadowed by the dog and pony show being put on here domestically by some politicians and mass media,” the 27-year-old continued to write. “The news that feeds the ‘inquiring mind want to know’ is inconsequential compared to that which is truly relevant but lost on the back page. I urge you to go beyond what is spoon fed to you and see what is truly going on out there.”
The daughter of former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin, and her Medal of Honor receiving ex-fiancé were engaged in March 2015. Palin announced her pregnancy just weeks after calling off her May 23 wedding to Meyer.
Palin, who is already a mother to her 6-year-old son Tripp, has not announced who the father of her second child is and it seems Meyer is set on getting the media to focus on more dire issues than his possible upcoming fatherhood.
