Sarah Palin Wants You To Pay $100 A Year For Her New Online TV Channel
The ultra-conservative firebrand, Sarah Palin, is expecting us to pay $100 a year — yes, 100 smackers — to listen to her ever-so-valued political commentary on today’s pressing issues. The critical reception? “I’d pay $99.95 a year if this halfwit would shut the f*** up,” an UpRoxx poster wrote.
It’s called The Sarah Palin Channel— original, isn’t it?
“This is a new channel that really is a lot more than news. This is a community where we’re going to be able to share ideas…and we’re going to find solutions,” the former Alaskan governor said in a trailer. “Are you tired of the media filters? Well, I am. I always have been. So we’re gonna do something about it. I want to talk directly to you — on our channel, on my terms.”
Of course, since Palin’s right-wing views are such a hot commodity these days, you’ll have to pay $99.55 a year or $9.95 per month — that’s 96 cents more than your Netflix subscription. Sorry, looks like you’ll need to sacrifice Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards to make room for more Palin.
Don’t worry, though. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth: Subscribers get an exclusive first-look at Palin’s day-to-day all-American mundane activities. “We’ll also share some of the fun that goes on in the Palin household and a lot of our adventures in the great outdoors,” the former vice presidential nominee said.
On main website, you’ll be tickled to see a national debt calculator and a countdown clock titled “Days Left in the Obama Administration.” (For the record: 906 days, 6 hours and about 27 minutes at the time we posted this story.)
The Sarah Palin Network is part of TAPP TV, a subscription-based online network with channels that feature big personalities with large followings, OnPolitics says. Expect a raw, unapologetic Palin, she announces. The “politically correct filter” are one of her many quibbles of “lamestream media.” A lamestream media that she, for the record, has brought on board to help with the new channel in the form of former CNN president Jonathan Klein and former NBC Universal Television Entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin.
While you might wonder who in the world would subscribe to Palin’s TV channel, an MSNBC poll finds that 31 percent wouldn’t mind shelling out $100 to listen to the squawk-box jabber.
Sixty-nine percent, however, said “No, not my cup of tea.”
Then there are the 52 percent of people who took this poll who just want her to be quiet all together.
