Skip to comments.Sarah Palin launches online channel as she rips ‘media filters’
Posted on 07/28/2014 5:29:44 AM PDT by Cringing Negativism Network
In a Sunday video, the former Republican vice presidential nominee announced the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based Web site that she says will offer news, video chats with her and behind-the-scenes glimpses of speeches and political events she attends.

Link to the new Palin channel:
Very top of her new website:
National debt. Currently 17.798 trillion dollars. And growing.
Using the Glenn Beck money-making model.
Why not milk your fervent followers for all you can?
I have encountered plenty of subscription-based websites thus far, and thus far none have really drawn me past just looking.
Coast to Coast, I listen regularly, but no thanks.
Glenn Beck, no thanks.
Rush Limbaugh, tempting but no.
There are other competitors out there, but this is the first one I will have to literally stop to decide whether or not I would like to subscribe.
Another link to the website, just for the heck of it:
Destined for failure.
I think so too....
I don’t think so.
It is rather low-cost to start a pay website. The issue will be providing the programming.
She has a no-cost way to subscribe.
I haven’t yet, but I’m just saying. Palin has a huge fan base.
I assumed that Sarah had a huge fan base too because she is so well loved here at FR. I asked some of my girl friends what they thought about her I got everything from an OK to a wrinkled up nose and a head shaking NO. None of these women are liberals. I think the media ruin her and I wonder if she can come back or does she want to come back.
I really like Sarah Palin but...
$4.95 a month, maybe. $9.99 a month, nope.
I’d rather give it to FR. And I’m going to do it right now.
Where’s the donate button? Ah, here it is.
Even some conservative women are jealous of beautiful intelligent conservative women.
I think Palin needs to reach out more to women, though part of her problem I believe had been she was young, pretty and successful and some women just rejected her on that basis.
Palin’s added a couple of years. She has a family. I believe she is gaining female fans, and could run a successful campaign in 2016.
I recognize your point, but I think that was partly just because she had so much going for her.
She’s still very pretty, but no longer that “must attack” pretty she was. I think her female fan club will grow by quite a bit, as she stands firm on issues (virtually alone thus far).
I agree - $4.95 a month is doable - $9.99 - not so much.
Please! Every time some yahoo from the media or even here on FR predicts that Sarah is going to fail, she usually succeeds or just simply keeps moving forward. Heck, there are going to be rabid liberals and GOP elite hacks signing up just so they can write nasty things about or to her. She doesn’t care and will continue to speak the truth. You can cancel at any time and there is already a lot of content available and more to come
I could handle $4.95/mo.
Rush is something like $4.00/mo., and I’ve been a subscriber for years.
$100/year is high, IMO.
I wish Sarah luck with this newest venture...but, many may be priced out, from the get go.
Just saying Rush Limbaugh, and George Noory are both (I believe) charging $15 / month.
So she’s already discounting, from her competitors.
No I take that back.
Sorry. My mistake.
What’s the refund policy when she quits?
Wow (very) tough crowd this morning.
Mod I sent you a request, but could I also request here my post #18 be deleted, I was wrong about the cost.
Apparently this website is a bit more than the competitors.
You get to keep what you learned.
I've been a great fan of Palin. But in the intervening years since she broke onto the national scene, there are things she should have done to step up her game, as Margaret Thatcher did to enter the Big Time, but Sarah has not. She badly needs speech and diction coaching, a better stylist (she really should not go around in skinny jeans with 6 inch high heels), and coaching in how to appear more congenial and less bitter. I agree she has been treated abominably. But in politics, you have to rise above that stuff. She is very confrontational; and when the confrontation comes with vengeance, she does get hurt. The moment I heard her start slamming the MSM in her first VP acceptance speech, I knew they would set out to destroy her, and they did.
Glen Beck is doing pretty well this this model from what I’ve heard from the Lamestream media.
After his latest stunts at the border, it is a miracle if he has any fans left.
I think you are right, she is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen and this old woman never held that against her. I think males were attracted to her because of her beauty, along with her conservative policies, and women held her beauty against her.
Sarah is great. She has been accused, or demeaned every step of the way. All nonsense as far as I can see. A real person, smart, able that cares about America.
We are blessed to have Sarah as a spokes person for conservatives. If she gets a million responses ... it is true that a dollar would be a bonanza.
Good fortune Sarah. Living in Texas, we mostly have it good. ... the world is constantly changing and not for the good. Pray for protection, for Sarah and strength and energy, and success in her new venture. Let us truly pray for Sarah's success. Thank Thee Father for Thy grace, love, goodness, mercy, we pray for America to know Thee and love Thee, and for America to return to our true values and faith, in Jesus name amen.
She doesn’t wear 6” heels and she is always dressed nicely for the occasion.
Her speech-making skills are much improved. She really knows how to connect with people.
Not my first choice for President, but only because Ted Cruz is far and away the best candidate.
According to this [snarky] article, virtually everything on it so far is available elsewhere on the web for free:
From this article:
So politics aside, its fair to ask what the value proposition is for a subscription to Sarah Palin Channel. At this early pointthe channel launched Sunday and began collecting paid subscriptions at startupmuch of SPCs front-page offerings are repurposed and available in some form free elsewhere.
Theres the seven-minute video calling for President Obamas impeachment from earlier in the month; various speeches, like her July 19 talk to the Western Conservative Summit, that are on YouTube; reproductions of conservative meme images; a link to her daughter Bristols blog at the religious site Patheos.com. Theres a national debt counter and a countdown clock to the end of the Obama administration. Getting a place of prominence is Sallys Word of the Day, a feature brought to you by my Scrabble-obsessed Mom and her friends. (The inaugural word: Rectitudethe quality of being honest and morally correctwhich reproduces the Merriam-Webster definition verbatim.)
But wait! Theres more! The marquee original content thus far is a collection of short videos in whichas shes been doing via FacebookPalin weighs in on current events hitting longtime talking points. The trouble in Ukraine, for instance, is evidence that we need to unlock our natural energy resources, or Drill, Baby, Drill. Another publicizes her book from last year re-fighting the war on Christmas. In others, she answers questions from supporters, such as, How many things can you name that Obama has failed at?
Many of SPCs short videos recall Palins hits for Fox News, placing her in a home-office setting backed symbolically by a carven eagle, a flag and a globe, speaking in a single take, YouTube-style; others have her speaking at an angle to the camera, as if addressing an unseen interviewer. The tone is on-brand: the folksy, familiar speech (after last years Phil Robertson controversy, she tells fans, You guys rose up and said, Oh my gosh, enough is enough!), her knack for digs that will rouse fans and aggravate detractors (Obama is addicted to OPMsay it out loudother peoples money), the Alaskan-mountain imagery on the homepage.
Beyond that, what SPC is trying to sell is community and connection. The sites videos are shareable on social mediaso depending on your friends-and-family list, youll be seeing them free on Facebook soon enoughbut you can only see or post comments if you subscribe.
She wears very tasteless, very high heels on too many occasions. Click and see:
She’s a beautiful woman. Just because she is in the public view does not mean she needs to dress like a prude.
If she wants to be taken seriously for her brains instead of her looks, she should dress conservatively, especially since she has been attacked for her brains. What is prudish about conservative business wear? Is it “prudish” when men wear traditional business shoes and suits that do not display their package?
Beck has followers, Palin does politics and has been leading the conservative movement and put a lot of conservatives in office.
LOL, the “concern” type attack.
It’s not an attack.
Why didn’t you answer my question about your double standard? Do you think men are “prudish” when they wear convential business attire that is recognized around the world as what serious people wear to do business?
Sarah is a highly qualified leader with a resume that very few can match. Her conservative message is much needed and welcomed as the country hangs precariously in the balance. But she continually shoots herself in the foot.
A website behind a pay wall will just be preaching to the choir. I don't see how it helps the cause.
I prefer she just continue boosting up other candidates as she has been doing so well in recent years. Just my opinion.
Of course you got on this thread to attack Palin, the most effective force for conservatism since Reagan.
Thank God we had her leadership and influence for this last 6 years.
Go Ted Cruz.
Rush is $6.95/month which includes audio parodies, dittocam and 2 year podcast archive, Coast-To-Coast Insider is also $6.95 a month with a five year archive. Both also have annual subscriptions as well.
I subscribe to Rush 24/7 and I subscribe annually, because its cheaper than subscribing monthly, because the annual rate is $54.95/yr.
If it's going to be Sarah Palin reading Sarah Palin Facebook posts, I ain't subscribing no matter what it costs.
At first I was skeptical about TheBlaze (at that time called GBTV), but it seems to have become rather successful. I listen to TheBlaze Radio quite a bit, and they’ve been adding new shows, especially on the weekends. I like that GunTalk is on Sunday’s now. It’s one of my favorite call-in shows on the weekends. “Real News”, “Real News Investigates” and “For The Record” are my favorite shows on the TV network. Laurie Dhue is easy on the eyes as well.
When Sarah Palin wears a dress or skirt for a public appearance, they are alwaays at least to the top of her knees and she does not show cleavage. In fact, she seems to go to great lengths to draw attention away from her bustline.
Yes, she pulls some political weight. I wouldn’t say she was “leading” the conservative movement. It’s far too diverse to say any one person is leading it.
I just find the cult of personality that now follows her kind of creepy.
There is zero question that Governor Palin has been leading the conservative movement since 2008, and empowering it, and giving it courage.
She has no cult of personality following, it is about politics and keeping her viable, since she has suffered the most dedicated attacks by media and the left, and the rinos of the GOP, that we have ever seen, yet she has survived in spite of you guys constantly striking at her and striving to marginalize and weaken her.
We have watched as she emboldened politicians like Perry and DeWitt, and helped bring us a real conservative block in government, and especially Ted Cruz.
“I would not be in the U.S. Senate today if it were not for Governor Palin, Cruz said.”
"She has no cult of personality following..."
So, where were all those photos I linked you to taken of her in hooker heels that you denied existed, if not in public? And why are you avoiding the question I asked twice about your double standard for how professionals should dress in public?
Blind loyalty, nothing more to learn, and believing someone is perfect? Don't bother answering.
Attack conservatives as “cultists”, but it is childish and petty.
I agree completely with your post. Thanks.
I am a fan of Sarah. But her dress is often inappropriate and her voice and accent are grating — one of the things that held Perot back and gave us Clinton.
Margaret Thatcher, whom you must admit enjoyed a consummate degree of success that has so far eluded Sarah, took voice coaching and got a makeover to appear more marketable. Many truly great people address the rough edges that may be standing in their way. That is not an attack. That’s marketing.
Your pettiness and womanly jealousy overcome your ability to think rationally about this most extraordinary politician.
It’s the same personal insults directed at her, over and over.
A politician and especially a conservative one, needs a way to access the public, influence the public and to make an income.
"She has no cult of personality following..."
OK. I'm convinced...
Thank God we had her leadership and influence for this last 6 years."
"She has no cult of personality following..."
Not a cult. Nope. No-sir-ee. Not at all.
