Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaskan and Republican vice presidential candidate, has launched her own subscription-only news service, which she says that she will oversee personally.
The channel bills itself as a "direct connection" between Palin and her supporters, with her own political commentary and the chance for viewers to participate in online chats with Palin.
The homepage of the site, which costs $9.95 (£5.85) to subscribe to for a month, features a "Days Left In Obama Administration" countdown clock, as well as a constantly updating tab on the national debt.
Stating that the site comes as she is “tired of the media filters,” Palin said on the site: “we're gonna do something about it. I want to talk directly to you on our channel on my terms and no need to please the powers-that-be.
"We'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about."
