19 Year Old Bristol Palin launches a PR firm

Bristol Palin

Ok, I’ve just stopped laughing about this, but 19 year old Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, has launched a public relations firm.  Most young women interested in public relations are in a college program learning about media, writing for the media, communications law and the art of persuasive writing.  But launching a PR firm? 

I’m eager to see her clients who are not hiring Bristol so much for her talents as to curry favor with her mom, especially if she decides to run for President in 2012.

Bristol, mazel tov to you. I’d love to know what your hourly rate or monthly retainer is for your sage advice.

    Bristol Palin probably got her training/education at the same school, (University of Political Connections), where former political consultants Forde & Moolrich were trained. Of course Bristol doesn’t have the “Great Pork” in her back yard or King Larry, as a best bud. Bet she won’t be getting any “No Bid” contracts, can you same the same about Agran’s associates? Dan, you should stick to writing about your basketball coaching, it is much more enjoyable reading.

      Don’t know about Forde. Mollrich has a degree in Communications from the University of Southern California.

    Pat — since this is MY industry, the folks at F&M are well-respected and do tremendous work. There is a considerable amount of work they do on the Great Park that I’m not sure you (nor Shea & Choi) could comprehend nor value. If you’re judging them soley based on coverage the GP gets from the Register, you only have a small window as to what they do.

    Likewise, I would have no appreciation for everything a cop does on the beat or on the job, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to question their salary compared to the work they do.

    Open your mind a bit and know one of the best firms in the world is working for the Great Park.

    And my girl’s team is doing just fine; we had to cut practice short Monday because the lights didn’t come on at Beckman High.

    Sounds like a front for Mommie dearest. Barf. Bristol needs to move out on her own and raise her kid. Doubt that’s happened yet.

    About the only advice that KID can give anyone is what NOT to do.

    I understand everyone has an opinion. This is America, anyone can start a business. I do not mean to sound rude, but I’ve never heard your name before. Does THAT make your article funny? Actually, it makes me sad that the news media has nothing better to report on then a teenager in Alaska. Good luck with finding real news worthy reports.

    Well, complain to the folks who reported the news on YouTube. And you’re right, anyone can start a business. But just as her mom lacks the experience to be a heartbeat from the presidency, Bristol Palin lacks the education, training, and experience necessary to be successful. But if her mom is her client, she’ll make some money from it. Good luck getting other clients though. I get resumes daily from professionals and college students much more qualified than Bristol for a career in PR. And while I’m not saying she’ll never be successful in PR, Bristol ought to go to college and study PR and spend some time getting experience.

      Good for Bristol engaging in a little economic stimulus. There are many successful individuals who are self taught, perhaps she decided not to go to college in order to avoid liberal brainwashing.

      Obama became president with 51 days of experience in the senate and a community organizing background. Sarah Palin has executive experience as a mayor and governor in Alaska. Only in America can people with diverse backgrounds become successful given the ability to pursue the freedom of liberty and happiness.

    Rachel Maddow covered this story earlier in the week…she spoke with B. Palin’s attorney and basiclly B. Palin is setting up a legal account to get paid as an independent contractor as a apokes person for the abstience orgainization she helps out. According to Maddow’s show, the same IRS paperwork for spokes persons also is applied to PR persons…so basiclly B Palin is just a paid spokes person…not a PR Firm.

    Thank you, Orange Reader, for bringing us information beyond what was posted to YouTube. When did YouTube become a viable source for professional journalists?

    Colony –
    the YouTube report is a video clip from Bloomberg; a news service run by professional journalists.

    I’m now laughing at the prospect of Bristol Palin being paid to promote abstenece, since she was so good about practicing what her mom preached before.
