Following in the path blazed by Glenn Beck and continuing her never-ending quest to bilk as much money out of the few people who still take her seriously, Sarah Palin is starting her own online TV network: The Sarah Palin Channel. Presumably, it’s for those who find Fox News a little too complicated.
The Sarah Palin Channel, which costs $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a one-year subscription, will feature her commentary on “important issues facing the nation,” as well as behind-the-scenes looks into her personal life as “mother, grandmother, wife and neighbor.” Palin serves as executive editor, overseeing all content posted to the channel.
“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” Palin, who is also a Fox News contributor, said in a video announcing the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
Now that’s just funny. As if she has anything to offer other than soundbites full of empty platitudes and catchphrases. And it costs more than Netflix, for crying out loud.
Subscribers to the Sarah Palin Channel will have the ability to post their own videos to the website, submit questions to her, and participate in online video chats with her and other subscribers.
Oh, now that should be fun. Watching videos uploaded by Sarah Palin fans? That’s almost worth the ten bucks a month right there. Watch this video, then imagine the kind of person who would find it anything but incredibly annoying. Rob Tinaisai got off the best line, saying the channel costs $99.95 for a 12-month subscription, which “will actually be 6-month subscription when she quits halfway through.” Ouch.
