Palin Skirts The ‘Media Filters’ With Launch Of Her Digital Video Channel (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin bypassed those pesky “media filters” on Sunday and launched her own eponymous online network.

“Tired of media filters? Well, so am I,” the former Republican vice presidential nominee wrote in an announcement on her Facebook page. “So, let’s go rogue together and launch our own member-supported channel! This will be OUR channel, for you and for me, and we’ll all get to call it like it is.”

The Sarah Palin Channel, described in its formative stages as “a video version of her Facebook page,” costs $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a yearly subscription through Tapp, an online video service founded by former NBC Universal and CNN executives. Active military members can subscribe to the network free of charge.

The channel’s website prominently features a national debt counter and a countdown clock for days left in the Obama administration. Several sample videos, including a video of Palin’s call for the President’s impeachment, are also posted.
