Promising to cut through the media’s politically correct filter and go around “things like” crony capitalism, former US Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin launched an online television news service today.
Sarah Palin: Let’s go rogue together
“Let’s go rogue together,” Sarah Palin implored as she promised her subscriber sponsored media outlet, at the low, low cost of $9.95 per month, would deliver not only news, but promised a view inside the family workings of the Palin household hinting at times to operate like a reality TV show of sorts.
“We’ll also share some of the fun that goes on in the Palin household,” a video on the web site promises, as pictures of teenagers watching TV and Sarah is washing fruit with her husband in the kitchen. It is unclear if Bristol Palin, the eldest daughter, will see much air time. Palin became pregnant as a teenager and is currently raising her daughter out of wedlock. It is unclear if this is what Palin was referring to when she spoke of “going rogue.”
In a section of the website titled, what we’re hotly debating, Sarah Palin displays the notion that “The solution to (Russian President) Putin’s aggression is energy development.” In a video, Palin notes how the shooting down of the Malaysian airliner jet by Russian-backed rebels has led to Putin’s growing world unpopularity. She did not mention that his popularity inside Russia, where voters are located, is at an all time high.
Sarah Palin: U.S. need to develop domestic energy to mitigate Russia’s growing influence
In the video Sarah Palin said the best way to mitigate Russia’s growing influence was to develop US domestic energy. “We can dilute Russia’s influence,” she said. “We can do it! We have these God-given resources all over this great land.” Palin went on to say that by the government “getting serious” about developing natural gas resources in the US, alluding to fracking and other controversial methods of energy production that have been accused of endangering the environment, Sarah Palin said “we can make the world a safer place.”
Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska, had explained in a television interview during her vice presidential campaign that she had proper foreign policy expertise because Alaska’s proximity to Russia gave her experience.
It is unclear how much of the news program will focus on foreign affairs. When asked how she would handle the conflict between the two Koreas, Sarah Palin once responded “obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies.”
