The former Alaska governor has made waves in the Beltway, but now Sarah Palin’s new channel is ruffling feathers in the media punditry establishment. However, The Sarah Palin Channel on the internet has drawn the ire of the voting public and is now the site of a vicious online Twitter attack, according to a USA Today report.
Palin is no longer Alaska’s CEO, but that didn’t stop her from reaching for the skies. The erstwhile governor is a successful author and has built a name for herself as a talking head against the Obama Administration and raging force against the filtered media machine.
As such, her decision to “go rogue” and start her own subscription-based television news channel on the internet makes perfect sense. After all, former Fox News anchor Glenn Beck did it with The Blaze and is enjoying the fruits of his unsanctioned political rhetoric and talking points.
However, in wake of the Palin’s channel going live, a barrage of wisecracks were lobbed at the former 2008 vice presidential candidate for office.
I hope this means that if you don’t pay $9.95 per month for Sarah Palin’s new channel, you never have to see or hear from her again.

#ThatAwkwardMoment when Sarah Palin launches a new channel that’s 50% how Obama is destroying your life and 50% about how great her life is

Sarah Palin is starting her own TV network where she will run her failed documentary 24/7 and charge people $10/month to watch it.

So far, “The Sarah Palin Channel” is pretty boring stuff. It’s just one shot of Russia framed by a porch.

Of course, there’s another side that sees the launch of Sarah Palin’s online news channel as a good thing for conservatives and Tea Party operatives aligned against President Barack Obama, and are hellbent on impeachment, citing a previous report by The Inquisitr.
Palin’s new channel went live Sunday and it attempts to provide an unfiltered stream of news issues that people want and need to hear. Sarah Palin’s vision, as seen on her website is to:
“Live life vibrantly, purposefully and boldly.”
Sarah welcomes visitors to her new channel with this video message:
“Hello, and welcome to a new project. This is a news channel that really is a lot more than news. This is a community where we’re gonna be able to share ideas and discuss the issues of the day, and we’re gonna find solutions. 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, and no need to please the powers that be. Most importantly, I want you to talk directly to me…”
Palin goes on to talk about future content centered on open discussion that the mainstream media and “Washington doesn’t want you to hear.” She uses buzzwords such as “campaigns,” “sound bytes,” “crony capitalism,” “perspectives,” “rallies,” and other politically-inspired jargon. Many suggest the Palin’s new channel is a nod towards exploring a run for the 2016 Elections. Imagine that?
Businessweek said if you want to subscribe to Palin’s news channel, Web TV fees will cost $9.95 a month or $99.95 a year. Along with that, a user has the ability to view content via a desktop, laptop, smart phone, and tablet.
So far, Sarah Palin, like Hillary Clinton and a number of others, has not officially indicated making a run for office when Obama’s term ends. However, expect her new channel to tease the possibility in the coming days.
Is the attack from the Twitterverse fair?
