Skip to comments.How Sarah Palin could change the media, and why she won’t

I do not care very much about former Alaska governor Sarah Palins waning influence on American political life. But I confess an ongoing fascination with Palin as a media phenomenon. As she vacillates between the Fox News stints that keep her political clout alive and the reality television gigs that seem like a more natural fit for her talents, I always wonder whether this is the moment that she will commit to a single path.
The debut of the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based multimedia site that Palin and her team launched yesterday, is a disappointing combination of these muddled ambitions. A bland combination of relatively predictable red meat for her political base and relatively mundane home videos, the Sarah Palin Channel suggests that Palin still wants both reality television money and Republican Party influence.
Some of the videos suggest one way Palin might have a real and positive impact on the media culture she so frequently decries: opening up the lives of families raising children with disabilities. But the overall effort suggests that she lacks the focus to seize this opportunity for a more limited, but more enduring impact.
In previous Palin family attempts to make it in reality television, Bristol Palin brought Lifetime producers into her life as a single mother and hit the Dancing With the Stars stage. Todd Palin participated in a military-themed competition show. Palin herself showed off the Alaskan wilderness, even if that sometimes meant she got stuck on a tough stretch of Mount McKinley....

For reals, player-ette? You ALWAYS wonder what Sarah Palin will do with her life?
Why don't you try getting one yourself. In fact, maybe Sarah can give you one of hers if you ask her nicely.
Who is Eliza Rosenblatt and why don’t I care?
They said the same thing about Rush Limbaugh, & Matt Drudge.
The fact that Sarah’s online TV had bogus malicious warnings proves she is a force with which to be reckoned.
Sarah needs to stop ‘waning’ so the libtards won’t keep thinking about her 24/7.
Keep posting because the State Run Media will keep writing.
The “unaccompanied minors” who work for the WaPo just can’t get Sarah out of their heads. LOL! Get ‘em Sarah! Keep up the good work. They’re all about ready to go over the edge.
Israel has no bigger ally than Sarah Palin.
American jews hate her.
you’re kidding ;-)
I don’t know when, where, or how, but I just don’t think we’ve see the last of Sarah Palin as candidate, yet...
And neither do those who write this crap, otherwise why write it? What conservative writer would waste their time and valuable media presence to respond to everything said by say, John Edwards or Joe Lieberman (VP running mates of Kerry and Gore)?
Hell, they hardly ever write articles about Dick Cheney, Al Gore, Dan Quayle or Fritz Mondale ... and they were actually vice presidents!!
Because there’s nobody, and I mean nobody, in the media worth going on Death Row for.
