After spending years criticizing supposed failures of the liberal media, Sarah Palin has decided to take matters into her own hands. On Sunday night, the former Republican vice presidential candidate announced the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based news website where Palin promises to “talk directly to you” without a need to “please the powers that be.”

Sarah Palin wants you to get “red, wild, and blue” in preparation for her upcoming reality show, Amazing America with Sarah Palin.
“This show is gonna highlight that freedom that we get to experience in America,” Palin says in the latest trailer for the show. Her idea of freedom? Man caves, wrestling, race cars, and target shooting, according to the teaser.
Amazing America with Sarah Palin premieres April 3 at 8 p.m. on Sportsman Channel. Watch the promo below:
An NBC News source confirms that vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is nixing a planned sitdown with Matt Lauer, which was to air on an upcoming episode of Today. The source adds that NBC is hoping to reschedule the interview.
According to the former governor’s Fox News colleague Howard Kurtz, Palin is still incensed about recent comments made by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir — who said Friday that Palin deserves to be defecated on for comparing the national debt to human slavery. (Bashir apologized for his “wholly unacceptable” remarks on Monday, calling them shameful, inaccurate, and “unworthy of anyone who would claim to have an interest in politics.)
While MSNBC suspended Up Late host Alec Baldwin after the actor shouted a gay slur at a photographer last week, it has taken no disciplinary action against Bashir — even though the latter host’s inflammatory statement was made on air.
Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate, is returning to Fox News as a contributor. She’ll begin her new role Monday on Fox & Friends. In addition to appearing on prime time and daytime programming, Palin will also contribute to Fox Business Network.
“The power of FOX News is unparalleled,” Palin said in a press release. “The role of FOX News in the important debates in our world is indispensable. I am pleased and proud to be rejoining Roger Ailes and the great people at FOX.”
Palin was previously a contributor on the channel from January 2010 through January of this year. Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes concluded his statement by saying, “I hope she continues to speak her mind.”
Sarah Palin is out as a Fox News Channel contributor.
The network said Friday that it is parting ways with the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.
Bill Shine, executive vice president at Fox News, said the network has enjoyed its association with Palin and wishes her the best. There was no immediate comment from the former Alaska governor.
A person familiar with discussions between Fox and Palin described the parting as amicable, saying that Fox and Palin had discussed renewing her contract but she decided to do other things. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.
Palin debuted as a Fox contributor in January 2010.
Russell Brand knows exactly what he’d ask Sarah Palin if she ever agreed to appear on his soon-to-be-retooled late-night show, Brand X.
“I’d go straight to the subtext,” said Brand, during the TCA press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “People want to [expletive] her don’t they? That’s why they tolerate the other stuff….OK, that is a mad thing to say about seeing Russia out your window — but the dick don’t lie.”
The statement capped off a rousing 20-minute-plus Q&A with reporters, during which a barefoot Brand talked about the recent chatter surrounding Chick-Fil-A (“Didn’t Chick-Fil-A say that they’re racist now?….I get mixed up with the prejudices,” he quipped), and the big changes coming to his show, which was just picked up for an additional seven episodes.
