Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's Earnings Over 9 Months Estimated at $12 Million
Posted on 04/13/2010 6:47:06 PM PDT by pissant
Former Alaska governor has earned roughly $12 million since stepping down from her job as Alaska governor at the end of July, according to a "conservative estimate" on the part of ABC News.
Palin had been making $125,000 per year as Alaska's governor.
The controversial 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee was reportedly paid $7 million for her book "Going Rogue," mostly after she stepped down. She is said to be getting $250,000 per episode for her television series on the Learning Channel and charge up to $100,000 deliver a speech, which she does regularly.
ABC News writes that Palin's earnings are "probably much higher" than $12 million since she left the governorship, "but is hard to quantify because Palin does not publicize her earnings." She has not disclosed what she is being paid by Fox News to serve as a contributor or her earnings from her planned second book.

I really doubt it, I doubt anything the MSM says
Well, good for her and what business is it of CBS? Jealous??? She probably made more money then they brought in...lol
Good for her.
Good for her indeed.
Good for her.. even better to know how much this pisses off some people.
If it’s accurate, I’m happy for her and her family. If it’s not, I’m still happy for them, because being nice people is its own reward.
I don’t. She’s got one book out, another in the works. TV, appearances, a Fox salary, speeches, etc
Wish it were double that amount.
Good for her...I love capitalism
I never saw CBS worried about Bill and Hillary Clinton’s earnings when he left office. I loathe these scumbags.
Good for her!
LOL. I wish MINE was 1/10 that amount.
Good for her. The left made her rich. That is the best revenge.
And about 25 dollars of that came from me. I hope she makes lots of money and rubs in the face of every leftwing statists that comes her way.
Did CBS run that story? &@#& no.
Excellent news. Glad to see conservative capitalism at work. The bottom line for liberals is get off the couch and go to work.
I want Sarah to be at least twice as wealthy as the skanky Clintons.
She’s doing just slightly better than your’s truely......
And, as is so typical of SeeBS there's somehow something evil about honest success. GOD, I hate those people.
Gee that is almost as much as Couric and Sarah has better ratings.
What the heck does that mean?
Gov. Palin, may the lawyers you have to employ serve you well — and win punitive damages, to boot.
Why the h-e-double-hockey-sticks is it seeBS’s business and why is this a story? How much did Oprah make the past 9 months? Who cares, as long as it was obtained legally and honestly. I swear, the media is so predictable! When was the last time you saw them doing a full cavity exam of any liberal’s finances! Like, when was the last time we saw the media give a crap how much Al Gore has made off his Global Warming hoax?
Not to mention this will help her pay off all the legal bills she accumulated while Governor of Alaska, thanks to all the superfluous lawsuits filed against her (after her run for VP)
Good on Sarah.
“And about 25 dollars of that came from me.”
And I received her book AND CD as gifts, so I helped, too. :)
Her success must bug the heck out of the lefties.
CBS is jealous because Sarah earns in a day what those idiots make in a year. Hey CBS, it’s none of your damn business how much money is in her bank account..look for Obama to try to “Redistribute” some of her wealth
So CBS considers Sarah to be “Controversial” yet Obama can say...
“Whether We Like It or Not, We Remain a Dominant Military Superpower”
yet the media doesn’t consider THAT a big deal..seriously, what has Sarah said that is so darn Controversial..other then saying things that the majority of Americans believe
Yep, good for her. Considering what she has to put up with, she is underpaid.
But why would that interest them?
Looks like a good down payment on a nice little campaign war chest. :-)
How many ballplayers make more than that for standing in the outfield waiting for something to happen?
The Rats think that only crooked liberals should be rich.
She deserves every penny even if she never wins another elective office again.
You Go Girl!
Good for Guv Palin, more $ to spend on her campaign to de-throne the fraudulent Emperor.
250k per episode from TLC sounds very high. I don’t think Jerry Seinfeld got that from NBC. Whatever she is getting, good for her. It looks like the electorate did her a favor.
I hope she goes on with Keith Olberman and compares paychecks. :)
“If she’s so rich, why isn’t she smart?”
The MSM have done everything they can think of to find fault with Sarah Palin except stick a microscope up her *ss, and the only reason they haven’t done that is there isn’t a reporter that can get her to stand still long enough.
She represents everything that’s good, normal, decent, and noble in the traditional American character, and so, naturally, the Leftists hate and despise her, and will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING they can think of to discredit her.
What the heck does that mean?
Book advances are paid in stages corresponding to signing the deal, delivery of manuscript, acceptance, publication, etc.
The media only has access to the signing stage, which she had to release as Governor. They don't have the details about the others (as private citizen), and it's burning them up.
Amen. This points out she is controversial. Only to the left wing.
Hmmm now if someone told you you could make 12 BIG in the next 9 months and be of high influence on a daily basis nationally... wouldnt you do it?
“Former Alaska governor has earned roughly $12 million since stepping down from her job as Alaska governor”
Somebody’s ripping her off.
Thanks for the info.
Maybe they could talk about the billions stolen from the American people by our politicians and Soros et al. Soon if not already trillions.
I believe each of the four principals on Seinfeld got $1 Million per episode, eventually.
And why is this news? Because she made more than Comrade Couric?
My guess is the media is trying the “rich” angle now, attempting to paint Sarah as a memeber of the elite.
