As Sarah Palin’s gig as a Fox News contributor comes to an end, the former Alaska governor said over the weekend that it’s time to stop preaching “to the choir” and that there needs to be “more truth-telling in the media.” 

In a three-question Q&A with the conservative news site Breitbart published Saturday, Palin explained her separation from Fox News as an attempt to broaden her audience. “We can’t just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience,” Palin wrote. 

Palin expressed a desire to stay active on the national scene, saying “country needs more truth-telling in the media” and that she is “willing to do that.” 

Palin also looked forward to 2014 and the need to challenge moderate Republicans from the right.

“It’s going to be like 2010, but this time around we need to shake up the GOP machine that tries to orchestrate away too much of the will of constitutional conservatives who don’t give a hoot how they do it in DC,” she wrote. “We’re not going to be able to advance the cause of limited constitutional government unless we deal with these big government enablers on our side.”
