Sarah Palin begins her own online channel

(USA TODAY) -- Sarah Palin has gone rogue again, this time launching her own Internet channel.

"Tired of media filters? Well, so am I," the former Alaska governor proclaimed Sunday on her Facebook page. "So let's go rogue and launch our own member-supported channel."

In a video on, Palin calls the new subscription-based network a "community" where she and viewers can share ideas. "I want to talk to directly to you on our channel on my terms and no need to please the powers that be," she says, promising to go beyond soundbites and to "cut through the media's politically correct filter."

The new channel includes videos of Palin criticizing President Obama and his addiction to "OPM," or other people's money, and her explanation of why she believes he should be impeached. There's also a blog by her daughter, Bristol, and running tallies of the national debt and how many days, hours, minutes and seconds are left in the Obama administration. Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, will serve as the channel's executive editor and will oversee all posted content.

An icon on the channel's website says it is part of the TAPP network, a subscription-based online video network with channels built around personalities with big followings. TAPP was co-founded by Jeff Gaspin, a former chairman of NBC Universal Television, and Jon Klein, former president of CNN/U.S.

Variety reports the Sarah Palin channel will cost $9.95 a month or $99.95 for a one-year subscription.
