Sarah Palin is starting a digital video channel called “Rogue TV” that is described as a “video version of her Facebook page.” Seriously.
The channel will be available through Tapp, the digital video service founded by former CNN chief Jon Klein and former NBC Universal entertainment executive Jeff Gaspin.
… “Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” (a source familiar with the project) said.
That said, Rogue is also expected to feature footage of Palin and her family in Alaska, much as the 2010 TLC reality series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” did. (TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications, is an investor in Tapp.)
It will also have advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes. There are also tentative plans to have subscribers engage in regular video chats with Palin.
Any bets on how long this venture lasts before she quits?
Meaning it will contain
- rewritten history
- descriptions of who and who doesn’t constitute a “real American”
- and daily examples of her foreign policy, economics, education, and military “expertise”
all wrapped up in a word salad . . .
The bartender ask “Where did you get that stupid looking thing”?
The duck says “I found her in Alaska”.
We are surprised that Actor Glenn Beck didn’t offer the royal pain-in-the-neck princess a position with The Blaze, but we hear their relationship is frosty.
Her hard-core base will subscribe to her “channel.” Others will say, thanks, but no thanks.
In the short-run, it will have moderate success (based on her followers). In the long-term, it will tank as her followers fall off the radar.
Sarah preys on people’s gullibility, not stupidity or vanity.
