Move over, Oprah! Sarah Palin has launched her own network – and yes, it’s rogue. The former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate has started her very own subscription-based online network, according to a report on Monday by People.
The Sarah Palin Channel, which went live on Sunday, will connect supporters, fans, and probably a few haters, directly to Palin, with none of those pesky media filters.
"We'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about," Palin promises of the site, which out prices Netflix with a membership fee of $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a year.
According to the New York Post, Palin’s website will feature her take on political events in a segment called “Sarah Says.” Sample topics will include “Obama’s Addiction: OPM (Other People’s Money) and “The Solution to Putin’s Aggression: American Energy Development.”
The site offers viewers the chance to send Palin questions and to be on the show, and there’s also include information on her family and links to daughter Bristol’s blog, as well as running tallies of the national debt and how many days (down to the second) are left in the Obama administration. (As of this writing, there’s 906 days left, if you’re keeping track.)
Palin will oversee all content on the site, and if you’re still unsure if this is your cup of tea (pun intended) she’s even offering a free trial at sarahpalinchannel.com.
Of course, talk of a Sarah Palin network has been going on for years—at least in a fictional way. In 2010, “Saturday Night Live” alum Tina Fey reprised her role as the former politician with a hilarious sketch about a faux Sarah Palin Network. The comedian introduced a lineup of shows that included “Are You Smarter than a Half-Term Governor?" and "Tea Party Wheel of Fortune."
In real life, Palin isn’t the first TV personality to recently take on the Internet. Former CNN host Larry King has an online talk show produced with Ora.tv, and Katie Couric joined Yahoo earlier this year as a global news anchor.
Palin’s channel is part of the TappTV network.
