Sarah Palin has announced she plans to launch her new TV channel.
For less than $100 a year, internet subscribers can get a lot more Palin all the time.
“This is a news channel that really is a lot more than news,” Palin said in a promo for her new right-wing network. “This is a community where we’re going to be able to share ideas and discuss the issues of the day. And we’re going to find solutions.”
Palin has also promised to bring her viewers the ‘real’ news, unfiltered by all those liberal media biases and political correctness that get in the way of her message.
“I want you to talk directly to me,” she said in the ad encouraging people to sign-up. “That’s what I’m most anxious about — hearing from you. Together, we’ll go around the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
Shortly after announcing her internet television service, the Twitterverse immediately lit up with sniggers and snarkiness about the former vice-Presidential candidate’s plan to make herself more visible to the American public than she already is.
Pointing to a geographic gaffe Palin made when she declared she could see Russia from her Alaskan home, one Twitter user Rex Huppke snarked, “Russians will be able to see Sarah Palin’s online TV channel from their backyards.”
Another pointed out that considering the belief in evolution is a minority opinion here in the States, Palin might actually find an audience on the net.
“54% of Americans don’t accept evolution. AND that’s why Sarah Palin’s new TV show will succeed,” CJ Werlemann tweeted, prompting Holly Warren to reply, “She just keeps accomplishing her money making goals.”
One even warned that environmental advocate Al Gore might just regret his ‘biggest accomplishment,’ once Palin takes to the cyber-airways.
“Sarah Palin announced she’s launching her own Internet TV network. Al Gore now regrets inventing the Internet,” Nick Brincks remarked.
While even Palin’s own tweets about the TV channel elicited mostly negative responses, it seems the GOPer has at least one viewer anxious to hear liberal-free news.
“Will liberal idiots be screened? (Hoping)” Renny tweeted back at Palin’s announcement, tweeting once again to tell Palin that when she tried to log-in the site was down making it impossible for her to take advantage of the offer to try the new network out for free.
