Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and a former Republican nominee for vice president of the United States, has launched an Internet TV channel.
“The Sarah Palin Channel, which costs $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a one-year subscription, will feature Palin’s commentary on ‘important issues facing the nation,’ as well as behind-the-scenes looks into her personal life as ‘mother, grandmother, wife and neighbor,’” reports Todd Spangler for Variety, adding that “Palin serves as executive editor, overseeing all content posted to the channel.”
Spangler notes that Palin’s comments were made in an introductory video on the channel itself. Palin also said in the video, “I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be.”
Palin added: “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
The article also notes: “Palin is producing the channel in partnership with Tapp, the online-video venture formed by Jeff Gaspin, former chairman of NBCUniversal Television, and Jon Klein, former president of CNN U.S.”
Spangler reports: “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. Active U.S. military members can subscribe free of charge, according to Tapp. The site includes a national debt ticker, and a countdown clock showing the number of days left in President Obama’s second term.”
