Sarah Palin has launched her own online subscription-based news and commentary channel that will “go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
Modeled on the TheBlaze, The Sarah Palin Channel is subscription-based ($9.95 per month/$99.95 per year, free for active military) and will provide subscribers direct access to commentary from Palin and contributors on current issues, as well as behind-the-scenes glimpses into Palin's personal life. It will also allow subscribers to post their own content, participate in online chats and forums, and submit questions directly to Palin.
"Are you tired of the media filters?" Palin asks in the announcement video. "Well, I am. I always have been. So we're gonna do something about it. We'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about. I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms, and no need to please the powers that be. Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
Variety reports that Palin will serve as the executive editor of the channel, overseeing all content. She has partnered with the founder of the online-video venture Tapp, Jeff Gaspin (former NBC Universal exec), and Jon Klein, the former president of CNN U.S. The channel went live Sunday.
